Link & Learn webinar: Where to next? The Emerging Learning Landscape

17 February 2022 1pm – 2pm

We are delighted to announce our first Link & Learn webinar of 2022, “Where to next? The Emerging Learning Landscape”.

As we cautiously come out of a 2 year period like no other, we are starting to contemplate a learning landscape significantly different to pre-pandemic times.  The pandemic has shown just how dynamic and versatile learning can be – whether it be in a schools, third level or in a corporate environment. 

Peter Gillis, Lead Researcher & Innovation Team Lead at Learnovate, along with industry experts from a range of sectors will share their perspectives on what the next generation of learning will shape up to be.

We are also encouraging our audience, to get involved in the conversation both with fellow attendees as well as our experts through the chat function and in our one to one breakouts during the event.

We want attendees to leave this Link & Learn webinar with real take aways and an enthusiasm for the future of work and learning.
