Learning Community of Practice (CoP) Meeting

Design Thinking for 

Learning and Development


Brent Robertson, Partner, Fathom 

November 15, 2017 - 9:15 – 11:00 am


Norwalk Public Library, 1 Belden Ave., Norwalk, CT

Auditorium, Parking on Mott Ave.


Our vision for the Learning CoP is to cover various topics in the Learning and Development space ranging from general approaches to learning and development, to emerging trends in design, delivery, and technologies.  

Design thinking is a human-centered approach to innovation or problem solving that instills deep empathy. It integrates the needs of people and user experience with the needs of the organization. Isn’t that what Learning and Development is also about? Join this session to learn and experience how a design thinking approach might help you in your Learning and Development role. 

Crossing the Rubicon: From design thinking to effective action

When attempting to improve a thing, any action taken needs to be considered in the context of the overall system that thing operates in. That means an understanding of how ideally the thing works, why having it work matters, and where any effort invested would make the biggest difference. In this interactive session we will explore some of the key principals of design thinking through the direct application of those principals to a scenario meaningful for you.

Come ready with a meaningful challenge, and your eagerness to dive in to create a solution that matters.
