BUSINESS EDUCA Highlights

What Will Learning and Development Look Like in the Future and How Do We Prepare for Success in These New Worlds?

According to feedback from delegates at Business EDUCA 2010, these are major issues facing business learning professionals. Addressing these issues, there are a number of Pre-Conference Workshops and main conference paralell sessions at ONLINE EDUCA BERLIN 2011 that we strongly recommend for the Business EDUCA audience and more speakers will be confirmed over the coming weeks. Business EDUCA delegates will also greatly benefit from the variety of networking opportunities and inputs from the full ONLINE EDUCA BERLIN 2011 Conference Programme.

Pre-Conference Workshops on Wednesday, November 30th, 2011

FD2 - Change Management for Learning Professionals: Ensuring Successful E-Learning Programmes and New Learning Cultures with Lance Dublin, Dublin Consulting, USA

FD3 - Working Smarter with Personal Knowledge Management and Social Learning with Jane Hart, InternetTimeAlliance.com, UK and Harold Jarche, InternetTimeAlliance.com, Canada

M4 - Preparing Together for the Future of Corporate Learning with Willem Manders and Hans de Zwart, Shell, The Netherlands

Highlights of the Business EDUCA track within the main conference agenda include:

How to build performance at the coalface:

Following his attendance at last year’s Business EDUCA, Nestor Ceron, National Instruments, UK, will be sharing practices on how assessments can assist organisations in achieving their business goals. Inspired following his 2010 attendance, he set about analysing the effectiveness of the training programme offered by his own organisation, as well as discovering customer needs. This year, participants can learn the results of his investigation in How to Create Customer Value by Using Assessments.

How to create competitive advantage through learning innovation:

Sann René Glaza, Toyota Motor Europe, Belgium, gives us an insight into the changes required to ensure that customer-facing staff have the right skills to maintain performance and competitive advantage in one of the most hard-hit industries of recent economic times. She presents: Building Technical Competency at Toyota Motor Europe to Drive Competitive Advantage Across Europe.

How to harness new learning media more effectively:

Debbie Lawley, Willow Learning Ltd, UK, will invite attendees to participate in an OEB Learnshop-style workshop to consider an alternative way to look at learning strategies within organisations, examining an overview of the principles of online learning, followed by models for achieving higher levels of interaction and contribution by learners.
