Productive Learning Environment: Building Learner Accountability, Experience, Capability, and Impact

Wednesday, October 17, 2018 @ 11 a.m. - 12 p.m. ET

We have one goal: to build a productive learning environment where our team members can learn and grow every day. But the landscape of learning is changing around us... The challenges and opportunities of the modern learner demand that we redefine what learning means in our corporate environment. At Micron, we are placing our learners in the position of power for their learning; enabling them to easily find, consume, and apply learning in their career; helping them understand how best to learn in our corporate environment; and ultimately, enabling higher levels of performance and engagement through learning.

In this session, we will explore these challenges and share how Micron is adapting to address them with solutions that reflect current and future reality.
