Business educa 2011 – Sharing great practices in Europe

by | Apr 20, 2011 | Articles

“New Learning Cultures” will be the theme of this year’s ONLINE EDUCA BERLIN (OEB), as it sets the agenda for an in-depth discussion of the most important questions facing those in education and business today. Do we need a new culture of learning?

How should we teach? How can we learn? Are the old methods dead? In a world of rapid technological change, is training enough? How can we encourage the adaptability and agility? And how can the delivery of education we keep up with the pace of change?

Targeting the issues for business

In business, senior managers don’t want learning, they want results. OEB introduced Business EDUCA in 2010 to focus on achieving organisational results through collaborative intelligence and learning.

Business EDUCA will provides the opportunity to explore, discuss, debate and apply the conference themes to the latest issues facing organisations today.

Come and Shape Business EDUCA in 2011

Business organisations in Europe are being invited to help shape Business EDUCA to ensure that the event is all about getting things done in organisations. It’s not academic. It will draw from practice, innovation and research and focuses on outputs in the workplace, rather than learning inputs.

You can shape Business Educa in 2 ways:

  • Contribute your own experiences – the Call for Papers for the event are now open – if you have experience to share from your own organisation that will be valuable for others then please consider sharing those directly at the conference. Deadline for receipt of all proposals is June 1st, 2011.
  • Take part in a short  independent benchmark to understand the challenges and opportunities facing european organisations who are implementing learning technologies within their workplaces. It has been designed for those who are interested in benchmarking their activities with others to support ongoing activity and planning. The study’s findings will be freely available to all participants in July and will also inform the practical themes to be explored in more detail at Business Educa in December.

Take part in the European benchmark here.

Towards Maturity will be supporting Business Educa and sharing some of the key findings and case studies with our readers. Do get involved and we look forward to seeing you there.

Challenging Perceptions

The corporate learning market is rapidly evolving to meet the ever-changing demands of work and worker. The C-suite and L&D leaders can no longer ignore that over 90 percent of organizations do not realize the full value of their investments.

All you need is Evidence

All you need is Evidence

Every year over $400billion is spent on corporate learning globally, yet only 15% is proven to stick. Investments in learning are continuing to grow year on year but performance impact is not changing. The industry is still struggling to provide real proof of impact, in fact, for the first time the Towards Maturity Index is tracking a significant decline. This is causing leaders to have low confidence levels in L&D.
