This year, we're focused on the future to understand how we can equip learners, educators, instructional designers, and learning and development professionals for what's next in L&D. Spoiler alert: it's not jorts. But should it be?

According to a recent study by Fiverr, 73% of U.S. workers say they will either start or continue freelancing in 2024. That's huge! It's a seismic shift reshaping how we perceive work, and it's just the tip of the iceberg. Alongside the rise of the gig economy, we're also diving into four other major trends-- sorry, you'll have to download the full report for the big reveal.

We all know that staying up-to-date with trends in our field isn't just a good idea - it's a necessity.

But it's about more than keeping your job or staying relevant. It's about harnessing the power of these trends to enhance the learning process. After all, as instructional designers and L&D decision-makers, isn't that what we're here for?

At IDLance, we see a future where knowledge is fluid, ever-changing, and shaped by all of us. We're passionate about designing experiences that break the mold for learning and go beyond the norm. This report is our tribute to the spirit of change and our promise not just to roll with the punches but also to really shake things up. Please hold your applause.

We live in an era where change is the only constant, and our ability to anticipate and embrace these shifts defines our success. How fun for us! The continuous evolution of educational technologies, delivery methods, and educational paradigms can be overwhelming.

We appreciate the importance of finding a balance between staying informed and maintaining your well-being and sanity.

And your TV schedule. We're here to take the weight off your shoulders when it comes to identifying, understanding, and implementing these trends so you can focus on all that other "life stuff."

We can even bedazzle your jorts for you if need be. Just ask.
