The Learner’s Manifesto: Are You Forgetting Someone?

We get excited about what’s new. We investigate new tools. We know that we must focus on business needs and impact. But aren’t we forgetting someone? Organizations have placed more and more focus on being learner-centric and creating a good user experience. This is good, but we must back it up with a solid foundation of insight and information. Your learning strategy cannot be built toward business impact alone! What do learners need? How can we find out?


This session introduces the learner’s manifesto, a bill of rights that reminds us about the needs of the people we truly serve. This session will use Intel’s learner manifesto as a starting point for an exploration about how we weave the learner’s needs into the fabric of our learning strategy. Based on external research and research conducted inside Intel, this session will provide participants with insights into what motivates employees, how that impacts learning preference, and what really drives employees to learn. This session gives us a chance to put a new lens on the discussion and come away with some tools for putting these new ideas into perspective.

In this session, you will learn:

  • What elements make up Intel’s learner manifesto
  • How we apply the manifesto as we envision the future of learning strategies
  • How you can frame your bold new ideas from the perspective of your learners
