  • 09h00-09h45: Jane Hart (UK) - Modern Workplace Learning

  • There are now many reasons why there is a need for a new approach to workplace learning. In this presentation Jane will consider some of the factors involved, then introduce the principles behind Modern Workplace Learning, as well as the role of the Modern Workplace Learning Practitioner.


    • What the Top Tools for Learning 2020 list tells us about learning at work today
    • How individuals approach their own learning and development
    • The new roles and responsibilities for learning at work

    Co-hosted by our partner De Opleidingscoach.

  • 10h15-12h00: Chené Swart (ZAF) - Re-authoring Leadership: An introduction to authoring and co-authoring leadership moments we want more of in organisations

  • Re-authoring leadership ideas and practices are built on the understanding that human beings have the wonderful capacity to make meaning and create narratives from important moments in their lives. In this session, participants will be introduced to the ideas and practices that invite our leadership narratives to participate in the co-authoring of organisational narratives that collectively move the organisation forward into a preferred future.

    When you have completed this session, you will be able to:

    • Access leadership moments that you would want more of
    • Weave leadership moments into the organisational context
    • Participate in co-authoring an alternative narrative with the organisation

    Co-hosted by our partner NCOI Learning.

  • 13h00-13h45: Brigitte Spee (NL) - Change? Use your Brain.

  • The webinar gives you an interesting trip into the inside of your brain, especially when it is confronted with change: the desire or necessity to learn new skills or behavior. Is your brain in charge or are you in charge of your brain? Making a change is easier said than done; why is quitting old habits so hard sometimes? How can you influence and use your brain to facilitate change or make is easier? The brain is a superb predictor of the future and makes very effective routines. Useful, but how do you seduce your brain to do new things that are not just fun?

    We dive into both he rational and irrational, unconscious and emotional parts of the brain, and explore the “limbic equalizer” in our head. This will give you at least compassion for the struggle we go through, and may bring a smile to your face when I tell you about the brain-mistakes I made in the past (and maybe if you think about your own).


    • Learn more about the user manual of your own brain, and that of other people
    • Understand the impact of change on your brainpower, performance and creativity
    • Discover what triggers your limbic system and how to keep a cool head

  • 14h15-15h30: Jane Bozarth (USA) - Learning Experience Design: Less Content, More Learner

  • Grounded in a combination of user experience design and experiential learning theory, learning experience design (LxD) proposes an expanded, human-centered view of encouraging and supporting learning. In this session we'll look at how elements of LxD, such as journey mapping and developing personas, can be layered on to traditional practice to build more robust, empathy-enhanced solutions -- and not always "courses".


    • What are the elements of Learning Experience Design (LxD), and how do they fit with traditional instructional design practice?
    • What approaches other than traditional courses can LxD inform?
    • How can L&D practitioners develop themselves for this broader world of learning experience design?

    Co-hosted by our partner NCOI Learning.

  • 16h00-17h30: Patti Shank (USA) - Selecting On Demand and Live Elements for Your Online Courses

  • There are many possible elements that we can use in our online courses. How do we choose the right ones? According to research, asynchronous (on demand--for example, prerecorded video, prerecorded audio, downloadable documents, and individual activities) and synchronous (live--for example virtual classroom sessions) learning elements support different instructional needs. That's why research tells us it's often best to combine asynchronous and synchronous elements. Some people call this blended learning. I call it using what works best.

    In this session, we’ll analyze what research says are best uses for asynchronous and synchronous elements. And we'll discuss how to build good blended (asynchronous/synchronous) courses that include the benefits of each. Each participant will get a copy of Patt's Content and Social Interactions Menu, a job aid for selecting the right online learning elements.


    • Analyze the advantages and limitations of asynchronous and synchronous learning
    • Use these advantages and limitations to optimally blend elements
    • Use a job aid to select good elements

    Major Insights:

    • Asynchronous and synchronous learning elements have different purposes
    • To get the benefits of asynchronous and synchronous learning, we should blend them

    Co-hosted by our partner De Opleidingscoach.
