What We Learned from eXchanges at LT15

by | Feb 9, 2015 | Articles

The eXchanges at this year’s LT15 Conference have gone from strength to strength and were even more popular than in the previous three years.

Hold on, what are the eXchanges?

The eXchanges programme is a unique, free opportunity to get up close and personal with the speakers at Learning Technologies 2015. It is an opportunity for personal interaction with conference speakers.

The feedback that we have received each year is unanimous: ‘What a great idea!’

Like all great ideas, it’s simple and straight forward, but incredibly effective. Each eXchange session is an informal, face-to-face group conversation looking at answers to practical questions that will stimulate innovation and creativity in learning and development. Each eXchange lasts for 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 creates the perfect moment to air your questions, problems and even solutions to your industry peers.

We aim to provide a summary for each of the eXchanges – so please bookmark this page and visit as more links are made for each of the 12 eXchanges held over the two days of LT15. We guarantee that each article contains wisdom gleaned from the subject expert and we’ll do our best to draw out action points and tips from each session.
