Impact Of Covid-19 On The L&D Profession: Perspectives From Independent Learning Practitioners.

The COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically shifted the way we learn. Learning and development practitioners have been challenged to step outside of their comfort zone, be curious and embrace new ways of delivering learning with high impact for the digital age. This longitudinal focus group study investigated the experiences of a group of independent learning and development (L&D) practitioners as they responded to the onset of the pandemic, dealt with the professional and personal ramifications, and navigated their way towards an exciting, yet in many ways, daunting and uncertain future.
This report presents evidence from a vital source: practitioner expertise. All focus group participants work exclusively in an independent L&D capacity.
