2018 Learning Trends Report


We used the results from our Learning Trends Survey to create our 2018 Learning Trends Report. Our goal was simple: find out what knowledge and skills trainers find most important for their learners, what challenges they face when providing training, and how they plan to deliver training in 2018.

We had 119 respondents from a wide variety of industries and many thoughtful responses to the open-ended questions. This report presents and summarizes the results. Then, we offer seven takeaways from the data.

What's in the report?


We asked survey participants seven simple questions:

  1. How often do you get input from your learners as part of your training design process?
  2. What knowledge and/or skills do the employees you train need to have to be successful in their jobs?
  3. What challenges do you face when you try to help these employees build the necessary knowledge/skills?
  4. What methods will you (or your organization) use to deliver training in 2018?
  5. What learning trend(s) or new training delivery method(s) are you most excited about for 2018?
  6. What emerging learning trends are you most excited about beyond 2018?
  7. If you could improve ONE thing about learning & development and/or training at your organization in 2018, what would it be?
