Link & Learn webinar: A Focus on Learner Engagement & Motivation

6 July 2023 1pm – 2pm GMT

Join us for our third Link & Learn of 2023 “A Focus on Learner Engagement & Motivation”.

Learner engagement and motivation is something that all Learnovate members identify with as a challenge and pain point, particularly as we progress beyond the pandemic.  In this session we will look at some of the key research completed by the Learnovate team and discuss some of the potential solutions to address the issues.

We will also examine the potential effect the latest developments in AI might have on learner engagement as well as motivation. We want you, the audience to share your own theories and predictions in this space and help drive the conversation.
