Technology Opportunities

  • What are you seeing as the “next step” in your use of technology — artificial intelligence, augmented and virtual reality, gamification, simulation, video-based assessment?

  • How are you using analytics to shape your assessment of learning investments and outcomes?

  • How are you managing the privacy concerns and cybersecurity concerns that accompany the growth of technology-enhanced learning?

New Partnerships for Learning

  • Who are you partnering with to create effective and authentic learning for your colleagues?

  • What collaboration across your profession or industry are you engaged with, and how do these support your learning needs?

  • What partnerships are working, what did not work and what can we learn from your partnership journey?

  • How are you leveraging global and social networks to support learning in your organization?

New Pathways and Credentials

  • Are badges and micro-credentials a part of your strategy to encourage and enable learning in your organization? If so, what have you learned about this work that others need to know?

  • Are you using competency-based learning assessment as part of your learning strategy?

  • How are you tracking the learning activities of your colleagues?

  • How do you assess the learning development needs of your colleagues and then create a learning pathway with and for them?

These are just some of the questions that we would like to explore. You have others. Come and share your experiences, your challenges and your learning. Network with others and explore what is possible. Find out how you and your organization can thrive in this emerging world of learning. This focused time will be powerful — full of ideas, practical examples and new ways of working that will help you think about what you can do to make learning effective, authentic, engaging and valuable.
