We start the day with two thought provoking keynote speakers before branching into three streams that cover the WHY, the WHAT and the HOW of digital learning. You are free to choose which stream sessions you attend - and you can move from stream to stream during the day. The only limitation is the capacity of each space - when it's full it's full!
Keynote 1, Clive Shepherd
Clive Shepherd needs little introduction to UK audiences. As well as working on his acclaimed book, 'More Than Blended Learning', he has headed up a corporate training function, co-founded a leading multimedia development business and operates as an independent consultant. He is currently devoting his attention to the new role of the learning architect, the design of next generation blended learning solutions and the design of digital learning content. At the conference, he will be revealing the six key roles in digital learning and exploring the steps we need to take to upskill our L&D teams in developing digital learning. Explains Clive: "New technology has the potential to transform learning and development in organisations, yet we are taking pitifully little advantage of the opportunities available. One of the primary causes for our slow progress is the lack of digital skills in the learning and development community and we must bridge that gap".
Keynote 2, Pedro De Bruyckere
Pedro De Bruyckere is an educational scientist at Arteveldehogeschool, Ghent, Belgium. As well as being a highly entertaining speaker, he also co-wrote the hugely popular 'Urban Myths about Learning and Education'. You can read his blogs on educational research – and myths – at www.theEconomyOfMeaning.com. In his presentation, Pedro will debunk some of the more popular suspect theories about technology and learning, and also share some evidence-based insights into what really does work in digital learning.
There will also be a demo zone where you try different tools and speak to sponsors about some of their latest tools and systems.
Full catering is provided and we are also planning to host a drinks reception at the end of the day where you can relax and mingle with the speakers and other attendees.
