In the future, we will see a separation of content, coaching, and assessment in learning. This will be facilitated, among other things, by the rapid development of eLearning tools that can be personalized to the individual, the recognition that coaching is crucial to successful learning in the majority of individuals, and the widespread use of open content.
Who should attend: Anyone interested in learning today or in the future.
What they’ll learn: Attendees will learn the foundational reasons for the future that Dr. Andersen will discuss, as well as projects and companies poised on the edges of learning today.
How this new knowledge can be applied: Attendees will be more able to recognize the changes in learning tools and be in a better position to specialize in one of the learning branches.
