Today the programme for January’s Learning Technologies Conference is launched – now in its eighth year. A great speaker line up featuring 40 industry experts and 3 tracks: Technology in Learning, Effective Learning and Performance Improvement. Naturally the focus is on technology for learning, but inevitably and rightly that touches other areas such as considerations on human capital, collaboration, talent management, competency frameworks and organisational learning culture. In other words technology is great, but it’s only technology, without people to make it work it’s nothing.
Our keynotes are Microsoft’s Chris Yapp, Dave Snowden of Cognitive Edge and Donald Clark of Ufi and now also Line Communications. They’ll be taking a look at where we’ve come from and where we’re going, and asking some provocative questions. There will be more from them, and our other speakers, in the run up to the event.
The conference runs on 31st Jan and 1st Feb. Socially, it’s going to be an intensive couple of days, with the conference party on the Wednesday evening, and on Thursday evening the Institute of IT Training Awards dinner at the Dorchester. As well as being fun, this will be the start of the building of a network of European learning and development professionals, sharing best practice.
I hope to see you at the conference or the associated exhibition.
