Upcoming exhibition to focus on online learning

schedule 14th August 2013 by Virtual College in Virtual College Last updated on 7th July 2016

E-learning, performance support tools and up-and-coming workplace technologies are set to be the main focus of the seminars being held at the World of Learning Exhibition.

The learning and development (L&D) event - which is taking place at the NEC in Birmingham - will open its doors to professionals from a range of sectors this October and feature more than 50 free seminars and workshops, Onrec reports.

It will give employees the chance to experience first-hand the platforms and technology they could see in their own workplace in the coming months and years, plus they will be able to sample the newest developments in the world of L&D.

Industry experts are also set to be in attendance to answer any questions they may have about online learning or career progression and will be giving talks throughout the event.

Andrew Gee, senior project manager for the World of Learning, said this year's programme is guaranteed to equip visitors with skills and knowledge they can translate into their own working environment.

He continued: "The introduction of one-to-one meetings is also another welcome addition to the event, designed to help visitors to plan their day in advance to ensure meaningful conversations with relevant exhibitors at the event."

One of the seminars, Resilience through change, will be addressing ten key strategies aiming to help employees embrace life's challenges rather than view them as stumbling blocks. It is going to address case studies from the NHS, British Gas and UCAS and show companies how they can engage workers.

Meanwhile, other experts will be looking into how to create learning campaigns and not just courses as part of the Nod if you can hear me - a guide to increasing learner engagement seminar.

A recent survey conducted by organisers of the World of Learning Exhibition revealed that the percentage of professionals who view social media as crucial to their company's future L&D activities has jumped from 29 per cent in 2011 to 42 per cent this year.
