Envision a future learning program

At GP Strategies, we work with you to innovate, ideate and explore ways of making your vision of learning innovation and strategy a reality.

  1. Artificial intelligence (AI)

    AI has the potential to disrupt learning and development through analyzing unstructured information, processing massive volumes of data, and extending learning experiences through near-human bots. We explore four ways in which AI could revolutionize your organization’s learning and development.

  2. Chatbots

    Chatbots can extend the learning experience by providing a quick point of access for learners to get answers to questions while accessing relevant resources and support. They can also connect learners to experts and coaches in an interactive personalized learning journey.

  3. Augmented reality (AR)

    AR technology overlays interactive digital elements, including text, images, video, audio, 3D models and animations, into real-world environments to enhance learning. With the ability for learners to create their own content, it has unlimited potential for transforming learning.

  4. Virtual reality (VR)

    VR uses technology to create virtual worlds that enable learners to interact with them. Immersing people in what they’re learning significantly increases understanding, knowledge acquisition and retention while reducing the learning curve.

  5. Digital learning labs

    A digital learning lab is an interactive, virtual collaborative learning experience in which learners explore key concepts and tactics and their real-world applications. These provide the opportunities for learners to learn from each other, curate resources, create tools and aids, moderate discussion, share insights, and provide feedback. In addition to exploring content, they may include simulations and interactive learning games. These can be effective opportunities to collect and analyze data, draw conclusions and test those solutions.

  6. Digital cohort-driven learning experiences (CDLEs)

    These learning journeys are a semi-synchronous fusion of curated micro-learning assets and social-learning experiences. CDLEs might include a mix of moderation, collaboration, gamified elements, chatbots and expert and peer coaching; all components are designed to engage, retain and reinforce learner progress.

    We prepare you today for tomorrow’s learning technology. Contact us to start building your learning program of the future.

  7. Skills analytics

    Moving toward your future learning organization starts with assessing and understanding the skills and capabilities of your workforce. Our learning transformation experts work with you to identify and address the skill gaps in your workforce, uncover hidden talent, and align talent to the tasks, projects, and teams that fit them.
