Breakout - What will Education look like in 3 or 5 or 10 years?
The rate of change in IT technology has been rapid. This has greatly influenced access to information, growth of knowledge and skills acquisition. The implications for the training delivery organisation and the trainee are already being seen with the likes of the virtual classroom, but where will it be in 3, 5 and 10 years’ time and how will it affect the training business. This session encourages you to put yourself into a future state and consider the possibilities.

Keynote: Disruptive Innovation and Learning - Where Next?”
There is much discussion around change and innovation, but what does it actually mean for customers, and what will be the impact on learning and development? New and emerging technologies are among the major disruptive forces in society today. What are disruptive technologies? Why will they be so vital for forward-moving customers? This is a gaze into the future.

David Wilson, eLearnity

Keynote: “Learning technologies in EMEA – the market realities”
For European customers, evaluating their learning technology supply options is a complex process, especially when the majority of market analysis is IS-centric and aimed at an IT audience. How do they differentiate the main vendors? How do the vendors perform? What about cost versus complexity? This interactive session provides independent advice and comment on leading vendors and trends in each of the main market sectors, such as bespoke e-learning, the LMS market, authoring tools and emerging technologies.

Breakout - “Go To Market Strategy in 3 – 5 years” This centres on how do you perceive the changes in your GTM strategy, given the theme of this year’s conference and the insights gained as part of both keynotes. Consideration should be given to content and collateral, modality taxonomies, and other factors such as length of classes, size of classes, theory to lab ratio, and so on.

Why Change?
Advancing technologies and new learning theories are giving us all massive opportunities to radically redefine both our offerings and our business models, but is the fact that we can change enough reason to change?  A clear example of this is VILT where the market has been very clear, and demonstrated it by very low customer demand / uptake, that they do not want it.  Almost without exception we have ignored this market feedback and persevered, why?
In this session we will discuss the various drivers for change and how valid they are.
