This is the second time in two years that FT | IE Corporate Learning Alliance has been shortlisted in the Learning Technologies Awards. Its programme has been shortlisted for the Excellence in the Design of Learning Content: International Commercial Sector category.

FT | IE Corporate Learning Alliance developed – and delivers – the innovative programme – called Facing Ethical Dilemmas – for the international law firm, Clifford Chance. The global programme exploits interactive learning methodology and involves Financial Times news content, along with an online psychological profiling platform using a bias-busting algorithm.

‘Making ethical decisions isn’t always black and white,’ says Gustaf Nordbäck, CEO of FT | IE Corporate Learning Alliance. ‘A concern facing all 3300 Clifford Chance fee-earners around the world is insufficient time for reflection, engagement and debate on ethical risks.

‘So, the firm is addressing this now – via the Facing Ethical Dilemmas programme – rather than reacting to possible future ethical breaches that could damage its integrity. This also sends a message to its clients about how seriously Clifford Chance takes ethical behaviour.’

According to the Learning Technologies Awards organisers: ‘Outstanding projects and products from across the globe are among those who made this year’s impressive, and record-breaking, shortlist. Entries were received from a huge range of sectors, including healthcare, pharmaceuticals, finance, transport, utilities, retail, leisure and communications, as well as national and international government, major public and membership bodies and leading international education brands.’

The awards celebrate the best in learning technology across the private, public and third sectors. Winning a Learning Technologies Award is a highly recognisable and a much sought-after achievement.

Shortlisted nominees faced the judging panel in a series of presentations that took place in London and online during September and October. The 2018 Awards winners will be announced on 21 November at a gala dinner in London.
