|10.20am||TALK||THE PERSONALISED LEARNING ENVIRONMENT: DISCOVER AND DEVELOP YOUR POTENTIAL.
It is obvious that the nature of work is transforming. We all know that the traditional job has changed from a ‘fixed-format’ to an agile job role. The adaptable and versatile worker is the new standard, as are competencies which can be transferred from one job role to another. Additionally, our working lives are also being prolonged. Life-long learning is a prerequisite. But how can we discover and effectively develop our potential? With an EU-funded international consortium we set off to just do that: high-tech potential assessment resulting in tailored learning interventions, making learning fun and effective.
