Workshop A: Modernising training for today’s workforce

Next public workshop runs 1 March – 9 April 2021

Modern training is not just about digitising current training events but thinking differently about what is appropriate for today’s workforce. In this workshop we look at the principles behind modern training, as well as how to determine whether training is the best intervention for a work problem. We will then consider a basic training model in order to modernise in-person and virtual training events as well as create modern training content. 


  • Week 1: Re-think training in the modern workplace
  • Week 2: Is training the right intervention to solve a problem?
  • Week 3: Design modern approaches to in-person training
  • Week 4: Run effective live virtual training
  • Week 5: Create flexible content
  • Week 6: Offer micro-training


Please note that this is not a traditional course; it is an active and interactive social workshop so you will be creating things and sharing your work with others. Each week there will be a reading from the MWL 2020 resource plus a Practical Task to complete and share with the group. There are no synchronous activities so that you can fit it into your working week. The workshop is hosted on our Yammer platform and facilitated by Jane Hart.
