Who Are You Training? Learner Persona Development, Design, and Implementation

Feb 08, 2023
Around the globe, businesses use personas in a variety of ways, but learning and development teams rarely use them. This is a missed opportunity because a deep understanding of a target audience is fundamental to creating exceptional learning experiences. In this session, you will learn how to research, develop, design, and implement learner personas into your team. You will leave with an example persona and a template so you can create personas for your organization when you’re back on the job.
  • Bring your own device. ATD will not provide devices for attendees to use during this interactive session.
