  • 8:00 - 8:30: Breakfast & Networking
  • 8:30 - 10:00: Session


The days of relying solely on classroom-based learning are officially over; tools and technologies now allow organizations to provide state-of-the-art learning from both long distances and for short durations. As technology capacity grows, the theories behind designing learning programs and the way organizations are managing/thinking about learning must also evolve. Because of that, we will focus on current trends in three areas to best capture what’s new in L&D.

  • Learning Technology
  • Learning Design
  • L&D Governance


Establishing a culture of learning is no easy task, but once created, can transform the way people work, interact with each other, and adapt to a changing environment. This session will provide practitioners an overview of the tools and technologies organizations should consider to provide state-of-the-art learning.
