5th scil Trend Study 2015/2016 - What are the trends for learning professionals in corporate learning?

Published on

What are the trends of tomorrow in corporate learning? The swiss centre of innovations in learning (scil) repeated its trend study for the fifth time in order to investigate challenges in education management, changes for learning professionals and getting the important topics on corporate learning.

Therefore we used an online questionnaire for data collection from learning professionals in different companies, industry sectors and countries. Based on a proven reference frame of challenges in education management quantitative and qualitative data was collected. Due to the fact that the survey has just been completed, data analysis is still in progress.

We want to use the EAPRIL conference 2015 to discuss our results with practitioners of corporate learning because we are convinced that they should know trends in order to estimate and evaluate them. Thereby we want to contribute to professionalization of learning professionals.
