Deep Dive Days

There’s something magical about being able to connect, discuss ideas, get motivated, and ask your questions in real time.

Our cohort-based learning format gives you the space to brainstorm, collaborate, get feedback, and spend time learning and connecting in small groups.

We encourage participants to continue working together outside of session hours to maximize the value of this unique program.

At ATD Intensive you aren’t a passive learner—you are an active participant.

Messy Learning Labs

Learning is not a straight path from concept to comprehension. We all need space for critical thinking, curiosity, and experimentation. Our Messy Learning Labs are purposefully spaced check-in points between live program days that allow you to explore, problem solve, and persevere-by-doing with peer support. You’ll get the chance to let ideas simmer, engage in retrieval practice, and collaborate on your projects. Consider these co-working sessions on steroids. Watch how you can benefit from Messy Learning Labs.

Expert Perspectives

Two of the industry’s top experts on virtual training, Cindy Huggett and Kassy LaBorie, helped develop this event. The live and hand-selected on-demand sessions feature some of the best practitioners and thought leaders in the field. These experts have (literally) written the books people use when figuring out how to develop effective virtual training!

Asynchronous Learning

Take control of your learning pace. Schedule learning time and explore our on-demand library, featuring the highest rated and most watched content from past ATD conferences.

All our content is designed to be completely hands-on to help you get the best possible results in the least amount of time and includes practical guidance for revamping every element of your virtual training programs.


Celebrate your progress by earning rewards for your accomplishments. You’ll get to select your virtual tool, update your first set of slides and visuals, incorporate an accessibility tool, and so much more. It’s just a fun little way to remember that you’re making big progress, and it works! We can’t wait to see you crushing your goals faster than ever!
