If you, your learners and your organization realize that training reaches its potential when it is not simply an event but at least part of a performance improvement system then you are on your way to the next step which is a learning ecosystem. Join us for an opportunity to learn about learning ecosystems, tools that make them vibrant (xAPI), how innovative organizations now use them and their potential!

For theorists and innovators:
A learning ecosystem consists of those interrelated and interdependent opportunities that combine to produce growth, change or performance improvement. Register today if you are curious about how formal learning contributes to the ecosystem, social and informal learning’s role, and how performance validation and adaptive coaching are valued elements.

For realists and pragmatists:
Do you think the paragraph above represents “wishful thinking” or “pie-in-the-sky” idealism that cannot yet be attained? If so, then you really need to register! This event will include examples of organizations already growing powerful learning ecosystems and what they include.

For technologists and program managers:
If your world includes “if I can’t capture or measure it how do I know it happened much less if it had value?” then register now! You will hear about existing and emerging technologies (Tin Can) that go beyond today’s LMS’s to create individualized and comprehensive learning transcripts, include capture of informal learning, validate accomplishment of “in the field” learning and provide data that accurately reflects the time and experiences required to achieve expertise.

For everyone him who doesn’t participate in the all day workshop earlier on April 9th –

  • What is a learning ecosystem and what learning technologies support them?
  • What are todays design approaches?
  • What does the future look like?
Target Audience:
Anyone who desires to be prepared for tomorrow’s training challenges and expectations.

Join us for an evening of thoughtful information and networking.
