Concrete, evidence-based techniques to optimize your brain for learning and join the “Mexican Brainwave”.
|Stella Collins, Co-Founder and Chief Learning Officer at Stellar Labs|
|10:20||LESSONS TO LEARN FROM INCLUSIVE EDUCATION
Inclusive education as a concept is elusive. No one definition exists but instead much diversity in how we conceive and understand it. Ireland, like most countries, has an increasingly diverse student population where the ‘one size fits all’ curriculum cannot possibly work for everyone.
By understanding student variability and identifying the barriers to learning as students navigate the education system, we can inform ways to create more inclusive learning environments for all.
By offering students flexibility, support and choice we can maximise learning for everyone.
|Dr Joanne Banks, Lecturer and Researcher in Inclusive Education at the School of Education Trinity College Dublin|
|10:50||CHANNELING AI TO SUPPORT THE LEARNER
This panel discussion will explore how AI can support the learner at all levels of education, whether it be schools/K-12, Third Level or a corporate L&D environment.
What opportunities does AI offer the learner, particularly when it comes to diversity, inclusion and equality in education for all?
We will also discuss the opportunities AI offers the educator, how does it make their life better?

Dr Patricia McCarthy, Member of National Council for Special Education Consultative Forum and Lecturer at Trinity College Dublin

LEARNOVATE RESEARCH PROJECT
|11:50||REMOTE ONBOARDING – TURNING CHALLENGES INTO OPPORTUNITIES
Onboarding employees remotely can be challenging.
Ensuring new recruits receive a positive online experience while also adding value to the organisation as quickly as possible is crucial to a successful onboarding programme.
How can we provide an experience that allows remote workers to feel part of the organisation and get them up and running as quickly as possible while feeling supported and encouraged?
Janet will be joined by Learnovate Member Michael Stevens to discuss their work on this project.
Tips for your organisation on how to provide an effective and engaging remote onboarding experience that limits staff turnover & encourages a more holistic approach to onboarding
|Janet Benson, Learning Lead & Senior Researcher at Learnovate
Michael Stevens, Head of Learning Design at Aurion Learning
|12:20||ROLES REVERSED – IS THE ORGANISATION THE NEW LEARNER?
Organisational learning can only occur when challenges are openly discussed, failure is recognised and shared, and where the most contentious and wicked problems are seen as organisational challenges and are therefore worked on across the whole organisation.
Indicate the first critical steps you need to take, in order to move in this direction.
|Dr. Nigel Paine, Global Thought Leader and ex-CLO of the BBC|
|12:50||MORNING WRAP UP||Learnovation MC Jane Ross, EMEA Education Lead at Zoom|

CURRENT AND FUTURE CHALLENGES
Corporate learning has seen huge changes both in its delivery as well as its consumption by employees. But have these changes been effective across the board? Many organisations have experienced difficulties trying to cater to learners in a rapidly changing environment.
In this session we will brainstorm and ideate together to identify some of the barriers to getting our key jobs done and how we might overcome these barriers to set ourselves up for success.
TECHNOLOGY TRANSFORMING EDUCATION
Technology in education has long promised to enhance education, increase student engagement, personalise the learning for each student, save the educator lots of time and ‘produce’ well-rounded individuals who are ready to change industry and society. But has it delivered?
In this interactive session, we explore the dynamic between the EdTech industry and education systems and dive deeper into the complexity of the topic with our expert speakers and panelists.
