My #Learning2016 Schedule

Learning 2016 event logo

Anderson Cooper is coming! ANDERSON COOPER IS COMING! As far as keynote sessions go, this is one I’m actually quite excited to see – especially given the timing with everything ELSE he’s dealing with on the job nowadays.

Learning 2016 will mark my first time at a Masie event – despite the fact that I live 5 minutes away from the regular venue at the Walt Disney World Resort. Feedback from past participants has ranged from “awesome” to “interesting,” and I’m excited to attend an industry event that is designed to break the typical mold when it comes to L&D conferences.

In addition to attending, I will also be presenting on behalf of Axonify as part of the Supplier Showcase. We’ll explore the components of a modern learning ecosystem and demonstrate how the Axonify Knowledge Platform is helping organizations bring ideas like shared knowledge, gamification, adaptive learning and continued reinforcement to life with amazing results.

As usual, I have sifted through the schedule of activities in advance to share my theoretical agenda for the event. In addition to my primary session selection for each time slot, I have listed a few alternates. It’s always good to go into a busy industry event with a plan A, B, C … and maybe a D.

My session selections are based on core themes I am exploring in my day-to-day work, including:

  • Leveraging data to drive adaptive learning and performance experiences
  • Engaging the disconnected employee within a distributed workforce
  • Taking engagement and gamification to the next level

Let me know if it looks like we’ll cross paths during Learning 2016! And, since this event is in my literal backyard, feel free to throw any Orlando/Florida/Disney questions my way.
