Learning to be different

31 January - 1 February 2018
9.00am - 5.00pm
Stand D15 - D16, London Olympia

We'll be at Learning Technologies exploring creative approaches to learning design, such as nudge theory, campaigning and the power of moments to show how these have worked for organisations like Channel 4, Boots and Co-op.

To capture our best practice methods, we're running mini workshops during the two days on stand D15, covering the following topics:

10.15 - 10.45
Achieving behaviour change - a nudge in the right direction

11.15 - 11.45
Risky, not reckless - pushing the boundaries of compliance training

14.15 - 14.45
Creating blended learning campaigns for impact

Spaces are limited – please email flourish@acteoncommunication.com to secure your place.

We'll also have a technology stand right next door (D16), where we'll be showcasing the Knowledge Centre LMS, our one-stop blended learning platform that has supported initiatives for Bayer, Boots and M&Co.

We'll be presenting the following seminars in the main auditorium:

Don't tick the box
Wednesday 31 January, 11.45am, Theatre 3

Old paradigms in learning and development are struggling to keep up with millennial organisations and their audiences. So how can you think different and deliver impact? We’ll provide simple, practical ideas and tips that you can put into practice, whichever technologies you’re using. And the good news is maybe you don’t even need the box… or the tick.

Join us to find out:

  • Why traditional approaches to L&D are not working
  • How nudges prompt behaviour change
  • How to use campaigns to move beyond the 'one-hit'
  • Practical approaches to getting creative with learning design
  • How these approaches are helping organisations like Channel 4, Co-op and Priory Group meet their business objectives

Learning to be a catalyst for social change; How the Co-op embraced digital learning to reach a diverse audience
Thursday 1 February, 11.45am, Theatre 5

In 2017 the Co-op created a new Member Pioneer role to support their work in local communities. Member Pioneers are people from many backgrounds, with different mindsets and expectations about learning. With such a varied audience, how did the Co-op use learning to help them make great things happen in their communities? This case study explores how to tackle challenges like:

  • Moving from face-to-face to digital learning
  • Engaging diverse audiences – from partners to casual workers, to volunteers and part-timers
  • Balancing the needs of the tech-shy and the tech-savvy
  • Harnessing communications to ensure ongoing engagement
  • Shifting from 'spoon-fed' learning to a self-directed, digital culture
