  • The L&D Global Sentiment Survey 2018

    Overview: 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. In 2014 ‘mobile learning’ topped the poll. In 2015 and 2016, ‘collaborative learning’ was first. In 2017 and 2018, 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. Over 1,000 people from 47 countries voted in 2018. 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. Aggregated, and examined over time, these answers provide a fascinating look at trends in what people in L&D are thinking – and reveal more than many people might imagine.
