According to the esteemed author Pam Hamilton, supercharged learning is our opportunity to create positive change. Learning transforms people’s lives, strengthens organisations and evolves our very culture for the better. Pam will give us an insight into how to motivate people with purpose, create unmissable content and bring people together to learn better.

|14:15||THE IMPORTANCE OF WELLBEING AND COLLABORATION FOR THE FUTURE OF WORK & LEARNING
If the past 18 months has taught us anything it is the importance of nurturing our employees’ wellbeing and how this can impact on their overall experience of work, including their learning. Ilse While will discuss Learnovate research into employee and learner wellbeing; what are some of the key challenges and what does the research tell us? Janet Benson will then discuss the importance of remote collaboration; why facilitating this type of experience helps, not only with learning, but with learners’ feelings of isolation and associated engagement and motivation.

The Pandemic has sent most employees home. This has caused all kinds of turmoil around their professional development, how they continue to advance their career, and keep up with the radical rate of change. Learning in the workflow is vital to their survival, but are we, as Learning and Development professionals, ready to support them there? This session will explore the power and approaches to successfully meet this challenge.
