Talk: The Future of Immersive Technologies in Learning and Development
2020 is shaping up to be a big year for immersive technologies like Virtual and Augmented Reality. What does this mean for the L&D professional and for the end-user? Well it means that it’s about to be simpler and cheaper for anyone to start creating incredible “learning by doing” courses that your team will be begging you to use. In this session Peter will discuss some quick and easy ways you can develop your own kinaesthetic training courses.

Key Learning Points at a Glance:
– Examples of how organisations are harnessing VR and AR technologies right now
– Why immersive technologies should be an important part of your blended learning strategy
– Using immersive technologies to better understand your content and learner behaviour
– What technology is coming in the next 12 months, and why it’s important to plan ahead
– Why learning by doing is so important for the future of education and training.

Talk:
Learning-Integrated Work
Up against artificial intelligence and automation, workers need to adapt. The question is, how? Swinburne University of Technology’s Centre for the New Workforce set out to answer this question by surveying working Australians across the economy to understand how they expect to succeed in the future of work. Sean proposes a new approach called learning-integrated work, where learning increasingly is taken off-campus and immersed in disruptive work environments.

Talk: Measuring and Evaluating ROI: Proficiency as the New Learning Currency/$
Proficiency is a leading indicator to prove ROI of L&D programs. The faster we can improve proficiency and change behaviours, the more we can drive performance and prove the ROI of L&D programs. In this session we will explore proficiency as a logical proxy for measuring ROI of L&D and identify best practices that provide learning leaders with  a foundation to improve proficiency.

Key Learning Points at a Glance:
– Increase employee productivity and performance, and provide a new measure of ROI for L&D programs
– Use proficiency and engagement metrics to inform and adapt learning programs.
