A Look Ahead:  The Now and the

Next of Learning and Technology

With Guest Speaker David Kelly,

EVP and Executive Director,

The eLearning Guild

Technology continues to advance rapidly, changing how we live and interact with the world around us. Today’s learning professionals face the challenge of staying ahead of this curve and tracking the technologies that are shaping the future of organizational learning, while simultaneously recognizing technologies that may be more of a passing fad. 

In this session, you will explore the changing face of the learning technology landscape. You will discuss the various technologies that have shifted the landscape of organizational learning. You will examine the common characteristics of these shifts so that you are better equipped to recognize which emerging technologies have the potential to disrupt organizational learning, as opposed to those that are just hype. You will leave this session better prepared to stay ahead of the evolving technology curve. 

In this session, you will learn:

  •  How technology can disrupt organizational learning.
  •  Which technologies are shaping the future.
  •  The common characteristics shared by disruptive technologies.
  •  Tips for staying ahead of the technology curve.

Attend this thought-provoking meeting to keep up-to-date on technology affecting your profession!
