World of Learning Conference 2012
Providing a compelling business case to secure your learning and development (L&D) budget, the use of technology and meeting the needs of a changing workforce will be amongst the topics discussed at the World of Learning Conference 2012 on 2 and 3 October at the NEC, Birmingham.
Caroline Waters OBE, director of people & policy at BT, opens the conference with a keynote address entitled 'How will L&D have to adapt to the changing workforce?', looking at the challenges often faced by L&D practitioners of the multi-generational workforce.
Other themes on the first day include 'Utilising coaching as a management technique to deliver business objectives', 'How to provide a compelling business case to secure your L&D budget' and 'Harnessing open source resource'.
The conference organisers say this year's event has a strong emphasis on how L&D practitioners can best harness new technology. A seminar delivered by David Wilson, the managing director of Elearnity and Conrad Hamer, business development manager of Jenison, focuses on Learning and talent in the Cloud.
A keynote address on Learning innovation with tomorrow's technology tools by Steve Wheeler, associate professor of learning technologies at the University of Plymouth will complete the first day. Wheeler is set to discuss issues related to social media for collaborative learning, mobile devices and 'on the move' learning.
Sue Miller, Metro and Corporate L&D Manager at Hilton Worldwide, opens day two of the conference with a keynote address entitled "How Hilton Worldwide developed into a 'Learning Organisation' to drive performance and profitability".
The sessions on the second day of the conference include 'Mobile learning or mobile performance', 'Technology not just to cut costs, but to add value', 'Integrating apprenticeship schemes effectively into your organisation's learning strategy' and 'Delivering blended learning results'. The conference closing address looks at how to effectively engage learners.
Andrew Gee, senior project manager at Venture Marketing Group, organisers of the World of Learning Conference & Exhibition, said: "Now in its 20th year, the World of Learning Conference has built up a reputation for delivering an impressive line-up of leading names with key industry topics under debate, offering just what L&D professionals need to address the current issues affecting their sector.
