by | Oct 14, 2013 | Articles

If you haven’t attended ONLINE EDUCA in Berlin before you won’t realise what you have missed! It is the largest online learning event in Europe and the only one that brings together the corporate, education and public service sectors.

With a particular emphasis on how Learning Moves , ONLINE EDUCA BERLIN 2013 will focus on change and the role of technology in promoting creativity and innovation so if this appeals to you then make sure you book a place and join us in Berlin (4 – 6 December 2013).

If you are in corporate learning you might be wondering what this event can offer that others, perhaps closer to home can’t , well here are 5 reasons for you to give Online Educa a try this year!

  • If you want to hear a more global business perspective – OEB brings together global learning leaders on your doorstep.

BUSINESS EDUCA  brings together learning leaders from across Europe to provide diverse but practical perspectives on how to address common business problems. Get up close and personal to learn from top L&D professionals from Adidas Group (Germany) , Air Liquide (France), Volvo Car Group and Toyota Motor Europe (Belgium), Scottish Social Services (Scotland, funnily enough) as well as industry guru’s such as Charles Jennings, Craig Wiess, Donald H Taylor and our own Laura Overton. The Business Educa Slots are coloured purple in the full conference programme.

  • If you are looking to broaden your perspectives- then look no further!

One of the most powerful learning opportunities offered by OEB is the opportunity to engage with thinking beyond your sector. Examine your own situation through a different lens by learning how other sectors are addressing mobile  learning, gamification, culture change, learner engagement and much more.

 

  • If you want to get hands on with video – this is the place for hands on workshops and practial ideas

The VIDEO EDUCA programme within the main conference offers a rich mix of practical sessions, workshops, master classes, inspiration and lively discussions on all aspects of video in learning. No other forum offers the chance to interact with international film and television directors, producers, executives and technicians to learn industry secrets

  • If you are mad about Moocs -and really want to understand what can be transferred from the experiences of higher education to corporate learning, then this is the place to be.

The session on MOOCification and MOOC Design looks particularly interesting with  Bert De Coutere, Center for Creative Leadership, Belgium sharing lessons  from their LeaderMOOC Pilot. If you want to really understand what the fuss is about then the  OEB debate is not one to be missed and this year’s theme is ”This house believes MOOCs are doomed”.

  • If you are tired of traditional conference formats  – and are looking for more opportunities to network and share ideas then OEB has something for you.

OEB offers a real variety of conference formats. Join the SPEEXX exchange as part of the pre-conference event programme to network with peers. The BUSINESS EDUCA lounge provides a place to hang out and relax with like minded delegates, you can enjoy (or even take part in) an exciting Ignite session looking at the transformation of learning. Take part in  a Learning Cafe to explore solutions to common challenges or get involved  in a popular crowdsourcing session to consider how to avoid ‘popular’ elearning traps!

One thing is for sure, ONLINE EDUCA  will be unlike any other event you have tried before – why not give it a go!

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.
