2020 was an extraordinary year.  Lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic has meant that the world of work has rapidly changed. It is not clear to what extent things will return to the way they were before and whether remote working will become the new normal for organisations, but it has certainly speeded up digitisation out of sheer necessity.

In 2021 businesses expect around 40-50% of staff to return to the office, so it is likely that remote training will still need to take place, but other more flexible approaches to learning will need to be considered. In fact it will require a new organisational learning culture and mindset that moves from purely designing and delivering training to enabling and supporting learning in all its ways at work. I call this Modern Workplace Learning (MWL).

In this first section we will consider how people are learning at work today and why a new approach to workplace learning is required. We will then consider what MWL means in 2021.
