I4PL’s annual, full-day immersive event will delve into the theme of “Transformative Learning” and our speakers will be presenting the latest approaches to learning influenced by developments in behavioural science, design thinking, and brain science, as well as how to apply new knowledge to workplace performance and learning. The goal of LearnFest is to create a space for a dynamic group to explore how the process of deep and constructive learning creates a shift to a more reflective and conscious learning experience that can lead to profound changes in daily life.

||Rosanne Blake – Moderator [I4PL Board Director; Director of Learning and Development at Scotiabank] - Welcome Remarks: Transformative Learning and the Role of I4PL
||Haesun Moon, Ph.D.(c), Canadian Centre for Brief Coaching; University of Toronto and author of “Language of Hope" and "Transforming Dialogues at Work”. Transforming Dialogues at Work: Transforming Leadership Education with Solution Focused Brief Coaching, using three foundational building blocks for education consultation and designing with the dialogic method of Brief Coaching. Haesun cares deeply about how we use dialogue to shape our everyday lives and believes that changing private and public dialogues starts with a small difference in how we use ordinary words. Leaders can engage in life-giving dialogues at work by first experiencing transformative learning in themselves. Creating small shift in dialogues at work, at school, and at home to bring about positive changes in people through intentional use of language is Haesun’s area of expertise and passion.

||Kate Woolhouse, M.A. L&D Specialist, Organizational Development, City of Kingston - Homegrown Solutions: How innovative relational practices enable organizational learning and performance. This session will provide participants with a unique look at the strategies used to design, implement, and measure a new onboarding program within a complex municipal government environment. Further, we will explore:
- The conditions created by multi-causal environments, and examine how these might inform the selection of our methods for discovery, diagnosis and action.
- Innovative strategies that build the capacity for teams to co-create meaningful and impactful process and structure that both reflect and reinforce organizational learning.
- The intersection of behavioral sciences, change management, design thinking and user experience design.
- How practitioners can support the emergence of the mindsets, behaviors, and attitudes that drive organizational performance.
- The concept of a “learning architecture” to foster the conditions that adaptive organizations will need to thrive in the future.
||Brett Nesbitt, CD1, MBA SA DSO, CANSOFCOM [Special Advisor to the Director of Special Operations for the Canadian Special Operations Forces Command]- Experience: The Vehicle of Choice for Transformative Learning: Experiential learning has been leveraged, with great success, in preparing people to engage effectively in dynamic, and challenging circumstances. The uncertainty that is inherent in all future endeavours necessitates an approach to training and education that enables and empowers our people to transform themselves in order to meet and exceed the expectations they will face in the future. We will explore three distinct domains where training programs have featured experiential learning as the vehicle to aid learners in their transformation as soldiers, planners, and leaders:
1. Training Special Operations Forces in the Canadian Armed Forces;
2. Design thinking education for senior defense and intelligence decision makers in Canada; and
3. Leadership training for public, and private sectors leaders in Canada.
Additionally, focus will be drawn to the commonalities in the experiential learning journeys of these disparate cohorts of learners.
||Ginny Santos, M.Sc., Stakeholder Engagement Designer and Facilitator; Founder & CEO, NeOlé Inc | | Niagara Institute Associate | Leveraging Technology for Transformative Learning: In this interactive presentation the audience will be engaged in a creative exercise specially designed to stimulate reflection on what transformative learning means personally and how to use technology to create collaborative learning experiences.
