PERCEPTION vs REALITY: HOW MANAGERS LEARN @ WORK

Learn from the results of three years of user-centric research into the learning habits of managers in mid-to-large sized organisations.

This talk reveals the results from three years of user-centric research into the learning habits of managers in mid-to-large sized organizations. What do managers actually do to handle unfamiliar challenges at work? Do they use internal or external resources more often? What role do the internet and social media play, and what impact do e-learning and learning management systems have? How can L&D practitioners apply these learnings to better support their organizations?

Speaker: Owen Ferguson, Managing Director, GoodPractice UK

OPENING KEYNOTE

CHANGE IS ALL AROUND US – AND IN FRONT OF US.

How do we continue to drive business value and position L&D as the problem solver through measurement?

The insight presented by next-generation learning analytics is exciting. In order to better understand the who, what, where and why of what works (and what doesn’t!) in learning, analytics now need to form part of the content design process. The team at Kineo reveals key learnings for tapping into this largely untapped mission-critical opportunity.
