Learning Technologies 2016: Session Details

Learning Technologies event logoFollowing on from my previous post on the Learning Technologies 2016 backchannel team, here are the nitty gritty details on who’s covering which sessions. Our dream team of contributors will be working hard to share insights and key takeaways from every single session of the conference. Remember, we use individual session hashtags so you can hone in on the specifics of certain topics or presentations. So if you particularly want to know what David Kelly has to say then you can just search #T1S3. All session tags are detailed below (we don’t have specific tags for the keynotes because SO many people share from these that you can just follow the overall #LT16UK hashtag and keep up!)

Day one: Keynote: Triggers – Creating Behaviours That Last, Dr. Marshall Goldsmith

goldsmith Dr. Marshall Goldsmith is the world authority in helping successful leaders achieve positive, lasting change in behaviour: for themselves, their people and their teams. In this interactive keynote, Marshall will begin with a discussion of how triggers in our environment can easily throw us off course and stop us from becoming the person we want to be. I’m looking forward to this as a bit of a change in direction from keynotes in recent years. Less focus on technology but should be fascinating as we all have behaviours we want to change or create!

Technology, underpinned by the internet, is changing the way we work, live and learn. How will abundant information, ultra-connectivity and a global economy transform things? And how will our ideas of working and of learning have to shift to keep up?
