So, what is the eXchange?

Training Journal have teamed up with their research partner Towards Maturity to bring you the Learning and Skills and Learning Technology eXchange on the 29th and 30th of January at Olympia 2.

This is the second year that Learning Technologies and Learning and Skills are hosting an official eXchange to give the learning and development community a chance to meet, network and collaborate at the event. eXchanges will provide a unique opportunity to get up close and personal with speakers from the conference.

The eXchange provides an opportunity for L&D practitioners who are visiting the show to directly meet the conference speakers to exchange practical ideas and experiences around themes being discussed in the conference.

A chance to get up close and personal with conference speakers!

The feedback that we received last year was unanimous: What a great idea! Like all great ideas, it’s simple and straight forward, but incredibly effective. Each eXchanges will take the form of an informal, face-to-face group conversation looking at answers to practical questions that will stimulate innovation and creativity in learning and development. The eXchanges will last over an hour and their USP is that each one will be lead by an industry-leading expert who is speaking at the conference.

Every eXchange will give you unprecendented access to much respected industry leaders and conference speakers. Here’s your moment to air your questions, problems and even solutions to your e-learning colleagues.

eXchange ideas with peers at the conference tweet up!
For those in attendance at both the conference and the exhibitions, the eXchange will also host the event’s official ‘tweet ups’ at 12.45 each day. These scheduled sessions are an informal opportunity for attendees to meet up with existing contacts, network and meet new people.

Who can you meet?
Below are just some of the speakers that you can meet at the eXchange but to avoid disappointment we suggest that you confirm your free space* today by registering here. (please note that this list maybe subject to change)

3 old habits that L&D need to leave behind in 2019

3 old habits that L&D need to leave behind in 2019

We have reached a pivotal point in the development of the L&D industry, where we need to make some hard decisions and critical changes if we are to remain effective. The actions we are taking at present, are often ineffective as they rarely create any lasting business impact. Right now, we are failing to show the value we possess to business leaders and lacking credibility with learners. So our approach to learning needs to adapt along with the times as we embrace the new year!

3 secrets for ensuring behaviour change in 2019

3 secrets for ensuring behaviour change in 2019

The point of learning in the workplace is to ultimately establish and develop skills within learners that help organisations to adapt and thrive. Saying that, with only 15% of L&D professionals reporting to have noticed positive changes in staff behaviour, it is clear that the extent to which learning is having an impact on subsequent actions is insufficient.1 The very nature of the L&D role is to instill new knowledge and behaviours into learners which they can apply in order to do their jobs more efficient and effectively. But at present this is lacking. So how do we ensure the behaviour of our learners change and learning is applied in practice?

Culture – is evidence-based L&D our silent witness?

Culture – is evidence-based L&D our silent witness?

Since launching our latest market insight, culture has been the most topical and provoked the more curiosity, yet, only 1 in 5 organisations manage to create a high performing learning culture today, and out of those that do, only 2 in 3 are successful in maintaining it. Although it seems only a few are able to sustain this level of success, it is definitely worth the effort, as learning cultures can result in 9x higher impact on engagement and performance.

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.
