The L&D Global Sentiment Survey takes the pulse of the L&D community world-wide, annually.
The one-minute, one-question online poll asks L&D professionals internationally what they think will be hot in the following year. Click to take this year’s survey.
In 2014 ‘mobile learning’ topped the poll. In 2015 and 2016, ‘collaborative learning’ was first. In 2017, it was the turn of ‘personalization/adaptive delivery’.
The question is always the same format: “What will be hot in workplace L&D in [this year]?” and participants are asked to choose what they think will be hot, not what should be hot.
The numbers of votes cast have grown each year, reaching 2,364 in 2017. Each person votes for up to 3 of 15 options, presented in random order. There is, in addition, an ‘Other’ option, where respondents can suggest what they think the survey is missing.
