by | Jan 19, 2011 | Articles

Learning Technologies at Olympia 2 on the 26th and 27th of January is definitely the UK event not to be missed if you are looking for inspiring ideas (for free!). Here are our 23 reasons to attend!

In addition to the exhibition over 2 floors, there are over 200 seminars to attend and a treasure trove of ideas to be had all for free

We’ve taken a look at the free seminars and have found 22 that have caught our eye (in addition to our own of course!) giving 22 great reasons for taking time out to attend – and the 23rd?

Once you have spent a few hours at the event, you’ll be wanting to sit down and reflect – this year Towards Maturity will be hosting the new coffee area at C25 ,so bring a copy of this article with you and we’ll swap it for a free coffee voucher – so you won’t even have to pay for your drink 🙂

The show will be at Olympia 2 London and registration is completely free – do join us there!

La Vie en Rose, does seeing ‘life in pink’ matter?

La Vie en Rose, does seeing ‘life in pink’ matter?

Learning can be defined in many ways, but most psychologists would agree that it is a relatively permanent change in behaviour that results from experience. The three major types of learning described by behavioural psychology are; classical conditioning, operant conditioning and observational learning. In order for learning to stick and becomes the new normal, all three types require self-driven will. Therefore, how people view the world through their lens matters.

Towards Maturity Learning Health Check season extended to Monday 16 September. Early 2019 results highlight that only 7% of L&D leaders report that their organisation encourages and provides time for reflection*

By popular demand, the 2019 Learning Health Check season has now been extended until Monday 16th September. There is still enough time to complete your review and revisiting regularly can also help learning professionals to measure progress year on year, highlight areas where improvement is needed and provide evidence to build a business case for change.
