Scalable Learning in a fast changing environment – New Partnerships and Business Models

The ELIG Annual Conference 2014 will bring together education, policy,  learning business and innovation leaders to debate:

  • How can we scale up learning at the speed of change – formal learning and experiential  learning?
  • How can we equip institutions and organisations with a new environment where learning becomes integrated into work.
  • What are the economic and societal demands of learning in a fast changing environment?
  • How can we build scalable learning that balances the acquisition of foundational skills with the everchanging demands for specific domain and task-oriented learning? How can digital learning support this?
  • What are new partnerships, learning venture funding and business models that can support this change? How can learning innovation be accelerated given the inherent conservatism of traditional learning Institutions?
  • What practical steps can you take within your own organisation?
