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.

Women in Work and Learning

Today is international Women’s Day; the annual occurrence that seeks to revel in how far women have come, and address how far they have left to go in the battle for gender equality. By celebrating what women have achieved, whilst highlighting the continuing inequalities they face, today plays a vital role in shedding light on women, their opinions and their experiences in life. We want to contribute to this insight and explore how you could make work place learning more effective by tapping in to the behaviours and ambitions of women in your company.

3 fresh ideas to reinvigorate busy learners in 2019

Every day your employees face dozens of clients, managers, reports and projects competing for their attention. With 55% of workers saying they lack time to learn, it is clear heading into 2019 that we need to apply some fresh forward-thinking to recapture the attention of the learners and revive their passion for learning.
