Looking Ahead to Learning Technologies Summer Forum

  • 3 Min Read

If you missed the Learning Technologies Show, why not join us at the Learning Technologies Summer Forum?

The Learning Technologies Summer Forum takes place on 13 June in London. The event provides an ideal opportunity for learning professionals to share best practice and hear all about the latest in workplace learning.

We’re excited to have the opportunity to talk about applying brain science in online learning design and hope you can join us for the session. In it, we’ll describe how we can all learn from the advances in brain science to maximise learning outcomes by evolving not only the learning content that we devise but also the way that we deliver it to learners.

Aspects of training that can be adapted as a result of insights from brain science include the overall length of courses as well as sections of courses, type of content, the choice of medium to get a message across and course structure. Brain science can help us understand how to optimise learning content and delivery for maximum information recall and retention. In our session at Learning Technologies Summer Forum, we’ll share practical examples to help apply these insights to online learning design.

Other hot topics we’re expecting to hear about and discuss at the forum include:

  • Assessing learning needs – learners enjoy a better experience, and get more out of training, when it is targeted and relevant to them. This includes delivering training based on the outcome of an upfront assessment of the learning need. The days of ‘one size fits all’ learning are all but gone. Now, learners can benefit from adaptive learning that delivers content according to their own unique requirements, current knowledge level and learning style.

  • Mobile learning – course design must be optimised to suit how learners learn but it must also suit the medium of learning and mobile is growing in popularity. With more people working from home and counting more than one office in their regular workplace locations, the ability to access training content from a device of choice is more attractive than ever. This means consideration must be given to how content is consumed on a smaller screen, often for shorter periods of time.
  • Implementing technology-based learning – the introduction of any learning technology into an organisation is a change programme. Like any programme, it has its critical dependencies and measures of success. Detailed rollout planning is a must, as is taking time to request and analyse feedback throughout implementation. At the forum there is sure to be the opportunity to learn from best practice learning technology implementations.

We look forward to seeing you at the Learning Technologies Summer Forum and hope to see you at our seminar at the exhibition.
