Modern Workplace Learning 2020 is written by Jane Hart

Lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic has meant that the world of work has rapidly changed. Together with other forces it means a new normal for both organisations and for individuals. The implications for L&D teams are immense: their work will need to change to support new business needs as well as individuals who have now enjoyed more flexibility and autonomy in their working practices. In this book we look at what the new normal means for L&D.

MWL 2020 is a continuously updated resource. It is available as an online resource and PDF.
In May it was re-structured and refreshed to reflect life in lockdown
The pre-lockdown version is still available as a paperback.
The first section is free to view online below, and you can purchase it here
