Learning 2021 Themes

Each year we explore the topics and themes that matter most to learning leaders and the organizations they support. Here are a few of the themes we’ll be exploring this fall.

The Learning Event has always provided the connections, guidance, and answers learning leaders need to succeed and thrive through periods of change. This year we embrace and amplify that focus.

For many organizations, learning has never been more important than it is right now. Discover the strategies and proven practices that learning leaders are using to meet today’s challenges.

The impact of COVID-19 will affect how we live, work, and play long after the pandemic is over. Gain guidance on how to lead your organization into the new world of work.

Discover ways to support what has quickly become one of the most urgent and growing needs learning organizations must address.

Examine how to pivot your blended learning approaches to incorporate new office environments and increased remote work

Understanding and sharing the feelings of others is a critical part of effective learning leadership, and Learning 2021 will be exploring how to put that empathy into practice.

The Learning event has always found ways to support charities and social causes, and we look to enhance that through our association with The Learning Guild’s Guild for Good Program.

Technology continues to advance and create new opportunities for learning and performance. Explore the intersection of learning and technology via unique experiences throughout the event.

Learning 2021 continues to place a spotlight on the strategies women and their organizations can apply to address the unique challenges women in learning face in their careers.

Emerging technologies are enabling new and immersive experiences. Discover the new doors that these experiences are opening for learning.

Examine the latest research into learning and performance, and learn from experts who will distill the insights into practices you can apply right away.

Automation is a driving force of the future of work. Learn how Artificial Intelligence, Robots, and other technologies are affecting the workforce, and what that means for learning.

Learning often takes the form of someone doing the work to solve a problem on their own. Discover how to support a world where learning is increasingly self-service and integrated into everyday activities.

The promise of true personalized learning is closer than ever. Discover the technologies that are powering this paradigm and how to apply them in your work.

The disruptions of the pandemic placed a spotlight on how important human connections are. Learn how to support these connections as you engage in social activities throughout Learning 2021.

Advancements in data and analytics provide us with a better understanding of human performance than ever before. Learn how to harness this power in your own learning strategies.

Mental health is a growing focus for many organizations, and today’s learning leaders need to ensure that focus also applies to our approaches to learning.

The last few years have accelerated conversations on diversity, equity, and inclusion around the globe. Learning 2021 hosts important sessions exploring L&D’s role in supporting DEI efforts.

Brain science and other learning-centered sciences are extremely popular buzzwords in L&D. Examine the facts, and the fiction, around how the science of learning can inform your work.

Learning should also be fun, and that has always been a core tenant of the Learning event. Learning 2021 will continue that trend, with experiences that entertain and educate, helping you build skills, relationships, and memories that will last a lifetime.
