Learning Today: Why Nothing and Everything Has Changed – Webinar

31st October 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Fundamentally, the way the brain learns is the same as it has always been. What has changed is the tools we use, the distractions we face and the breadth of information we have access to. How does this impact the work of L&D professions?

Nothing has changed in how we learn, not fundamentally. The way neurons fire and form networks in our brain is the same as it was when we stood on the African savannah a few tens of thousands of years ago.

In other ways, though, everything has changed – the tools we use, the distractions we face and the breadth of information we have access to, are all vastly different to what we faced just few years ago, never mind tens of thousands.

In this session, Donald Taylor will explore how today’s fast changing world affects learning and development, whether in academia or in the workplace. What impact does technology and superabundant information have on our daily roles, on the expectations of our employers and our learners? Be prepared to be energized, enthused and challenged as we consider:

  • Adapting our natural ways of learning to the modern world
  • Why memory is now more important than ever
  • The long, imperfect legacy of the schoolroom
  • Why Artificial Intelligence is both a tremendous opportunity and threat
  • The profound implications for learning professionals
