If you go forward to 2020 (or beyond), what do you think workplace learning will look like? How should we as learning professionals prepare for that future? What influence do we have on that future?

Our speakers, Curtis Cox and Kevin Duffer of C2 Technologies, Inc., will present current research on the learning and talent landscape such as machine learning and AI), as well as what people like Josh Bersin/Deloitte, Elliott Masie, and others are saying about the future of learning, covering topics such as predictive analytics, microlearning, bots, augmented reality, and virtual reality. You’ll also get a chance to see some examples of cutting-edge learning solutions and prototypes.

Based on that inspiration and information, you’ll review your initial predictions and update them and then share examples of what these innovations mean for you and your organization. Drawing on the expertise in the room, our presenters will facilitate a lively discussion about what learning will look like in the future and how learning professionals can prepare for and influence that future. You’ll walk away with a grid comparing your own predictions with those of learning industry leaders, as well as bleeding-edge learning design ideas.
