This year’s conference theme is: Connections
In 2020 we are connected to each other and the world outside our door more than ever before. This presents many opportunities to co-discover, co-evolve our thinking in response to the changing world around us, and to co-create how we learn and teach in a global classroom, and leverage the latest technology to achieve the ultimate human feeling of connection. These connection opportunities open new doors that, when approached strategically, can result in better learning experiences, better business results, and business outcomes beyond what was imaginable only a few years ago.
We will present 5 exciting tracks -
1. Global Connections – Globalization in learning
This track focuses on globalization in learning and how this reality has changed the shape of workplace learning and performance, both in terms of the learner experience and in terms of how industry and business approach learning needs and instructional design. Some of the imperatives driving change due to global connections that will be explored in this track are:
2. Virtual Connections – Online learning, the tools that make it happen and the humans behind the tools
This track focuses on connecting through virtual platforms to provide learners with a rich and personalized experience and maximizing technology to support and enhance workplace performance. Some of the conversations in this track might include:
3. Business Connections – Connect workplace learning with business objectives
This track will focus on connecting workplace learning activities directly to business objectives by using evidence-based data to measure talent development initiatives, program effectiveness, and impact on organizational outcomes. Effective business connections also means achieving effective partnering with all areas involved.
4. Connection to Research - Explore the latest research on adult learning and education
5. Leadership Connections – Strategic approaches to performance and learning that positively impact organizational performance.
This track examines approaches for CLOs and senior performance and learning professionals to communicate the value of L&D in business terms that are persuasive and inspire action. Managing organizational learning requires L&D leaders to scan the internal and external environment for signs of change readiness; strategically approach change initiatives that impact organizational performance; apply a project management process; and incorporate learning trends and non-training solutions, such as performance consulting and coaching, to support change.
