Taking place at PATH, Seattle (USA), between September 28-30, the Global Learning Forum provides an opportunity for the learning and development community to engage over a shared goal: maximizing impact through innovative, scalable learning and capacity building.
Keynote speakers and session leaders at the Forum are renowned experts in the fields of international development, humanitarian relief, conservation, the learning industry, and capacity-building organizations.
Amongst these speakers is Learning Pool’s Principle Consultant Alan Betts, who will be delivering a workshop aimed at organisations who are fed up with the tyranny of the “next” button and looking for a new way to drive higher level of engagement in learning.
The session, entitled Social Learning: Join the Revolution, takes place at 1330 on Day 1 of the Conference and will explore a variety of case studies showing just what an impact Social Learning can make to an organization. Attendees will also be encouraged to take part in a small Social Learning experiment to enable them to experience the results first hand.
Speaking ahead of the Forum, Betts is optimistic about the future of learning within the NGO Sector:
“We’re delighted to be a part of the Forum and to further support LINGOs in their mission to deliver appropriate, affordable, accessible and actionable learning solutions following the announcement of our Partnership earlier this year.
“The social learning approach that is being introduced at LINGOs on their new Project Management courses will really allow them to overcome the barriers of having a dispersed, multi-national audience [among others] and we’re excited at the prospect of introducing further NGOs to this social revolution through the delivery of this workshop.”
LINGOs Members normally benefit from 30% discount on Stream LXP (formerly Curatr) licences but Learning Pool (formerly HT2 Labs), Silver Sponsors of this year’s Forum, are offering to further boost this discount for attendees for a limited period, details of which will be made available at the event.
