12 OCTOBER – DAY 1 THEME: Talent & Skills – How does learning need to be redefined to attract the best talent and skills?
|13:45||HOW ORGANISATIONS ARE REIMAGINING LEARNING
Is organizational learning a thing? Dr Nigel Paine will argue yes and will focus on how we can help build organizational learning and develop increasing organizational agility. This is different from increasing the quantity of individual learning in organizations. And he will tell you why.

|14:15||LEARNER MOTIVATION IN REMOTE LEARNING ENVIRONMENTS
The Covid 19 pandemic brought with it a rapid and dramatic change to how education and learning was delivered. The reaction was swift and effective, learning, assignments and exams all moved online in a matter of weeks. At the time it was believed this shift would show the way for digital prompting quotes like ‘This mode will soon replace on-campus instruction’. However as with any emergency policy, not all aspects could be thought out and addressed, chief among these was student motivation.
