Top three seminars not to miss at Learning Technologies 2019

Spread over two days, with hundreds of exhibitors and multiple conferences taking place Learning Technologies can be tricky to navigate. To make the most of your time there and get the best out of the event we’ve rounded up the top three seminars not to miss!

The future L&D team: Essential skills and emerging roles

In our fast-changing world we cannot assume that traditional L&D skills and roles will deliver the learning that organisations require. An increased demand to drive performance and leverage digital solutions requires L&D teams to reconsider their skills and strategies.

CIPD’s new Profession Map defines an updated foundation for L&D professionals. You can join Andy Lancaster, CIPD’s Head of L&D Content at his session which will explore essential knowledge and behaviours and new roles for future-focused L&D teams;

  • What it means to be professional in L&D
  • Explore foundational knowledge and behaviour for L&D teams
  • Define key areas in which L&D must achieve a shift in practice
  • Highlight some emerging L&D roles

The Future L&D team: Essential skills and emerging roles will be taking place on 13th February, 11:45 – 12:15 in Theatre 7. 

The power of a growth mindset

Implementing a growth mindset approach can mean the difference between a learning culture that’s pushed and one that’s driven by the individuals. Growth mindset is a buzz term often used to describe the way an organisation wants their culture to be, but how do you genuinely implement a growth mindset? How do you support individuals recognising what a growth mindset is, through to seeing genuine behaviour change?

You can join Virtual College’s Growth Mindset Expert and Content Development Manager, Sarah Baker alongside Learning Technology Consultant, Dan Nolan on 13th February, 13:15 – 13:45 in Theatre 6 to find out more.

Sarah and Dan will be demonstrating how a growth mindset can be achieved by discussing;

  • What do we mean by growth mindset versus fixed mindset
  • The theory behind this approach
  • What this means for how you engage learners to self-drive this behaviour
  • How you can use educational technology tools and resources to drive this
  • Practical take away tips to start embedding this in your organisation.

9 tactics to guarantee business impact

Towards Maturity, Founder and CEO Laura Overton will be ending LT2019 with a power packed seminar with the latest Towards Maturity research. If at the end of Learning Technologies, you are big on ideas but worried about business buy in, then attend Laura and Chief Insights Officer, Jane Daly’s seminar

The session will;

  • Uncover evidence behind nine new tactics to help you activate and accelerate the next stage of your learning transformation journey, whatever your starting point.

You can catch Laura and Jane on the 14th February at 16:15 – 16:45 in Theatre 8.
