    Abstract

    Synopsis: The COVID-19 pandemic has required a dramatic shift in ways of working. For many learning and development professionals, this has meant a rapid change in the use of digital learning technology. Our research, in collaboration with Affinity Health at Work, draws on the experiences of independent L&D practitioners, who were confronted with the sudden need to adapt their businesses – not only to reconfigure their programmes for digital platforms, but to make them appealing to stakeholders within an increasingly competitive market. Our evidence was collected from a vital source – practitioner expertise. It identifies the common barriers to transitioning to this new context and the technological, personal and relational resources needed to overcome them. It also considers how L&D will change and evolve in the coming years. People practitioners with responsibility for learning and skills development can use these practical insights to understand how digital learning can be adopted and blended effectively with face-to-face learning in the future.
