Are your learning experiences providing a competitive advantage for your organisation?

Today’s workforce increasingly demands 21st-century skills such as creativity, empathy, critical thinking and technological literacy, but these kinds of skills are difficult to teach and are not emphasised. Training needs to adapt and move from passive to immersive, authentic and transformative learning.

The continually evolving virtual reality (VR) landscape is delivering substantial benefits for a range of organisations around the world. And the learning application for VR is forecast to grow at 18% CAGR to 2030. Research indicates a VR learning environment rapidly accelerates the learning process by going beyond traditional role-plays and practice sessions. The immersive environment delivers profound, authentic learning with participants experiencing massive engagement and transformative impact.

VR learning is a critical component of any mature organisation’s L&D strategy and planning for delivery starts now. 

This session leverages the global experiences of leading corporations to implement the latest in learning methodologies across areas such as leadership, coaching, inclusion, talent assessment, ethics, and compliance.

Key Takeaways:
  1. The importance of including VR in your L&D strategy
  2. The business case for VR learning in your organisation
  3. Getting started with your VR implementation plan
