Keynote: The science of attention and engagement

DAY ONE
A number of myths persist about people’s allegedly ever-shortening attention spans—but what does the science say? Neuroscience, behavioral economics, and consumer psychology all offer insights into how we manage and allocate attention. Additionally, our ability to manage attention and focus seems to be related to our abilities to allocate willpower and influence how we make decisions.

In this session, you will learn what the current science says about attention and how that influences the design of learning environments. Having a deeper understanding of this topic will help you create more engaging and effective learning solutions.

Championing and fostering a culture of continuous learning

DAY ONE
The days of Learning and Development professionals prioritising knowledge focused training has come to an end. In today’s environment of accelerated change and digital disruption, the conversation has shifted to how can companies, and the people that make them, be more agile, innovative and responsive. The challenge then, is how can L&D become champions of continuous learning as we empower high performance in our organisations?

This presentation will draw on latest research and international examples in examining the strategies, campaigns and approaches L&D professionals can adopt to foster a culture of continuous learning. Topics include how to reframe failure, how to support higher order and agile thinking, and tips on how to most effectively empower our audiences.

Taking the guess work out of understanding Australian learning trends

DAY ONE
Did you know that more women now participate in learning than men and that the rate of workplace training has fallen by 8 per cent since 2005? Four in ten (40.9%) Australians aged 15-74 years participated in formal and/or non-formal learning in 2016-17. Participation has decreased since the last survey in 2013 (46.4%) and since 2005 (48.9%).

In late 2018 the Australian Bureau of Statistics released the results of the Survey of Work-Related Training and Adult Learning (WRTAL) collected throughout Australia. The WRTAL survey collected information from July 2016 to June 2017 about the level of participation of in formal and non-formal learning. The WRTAL gives fascinating insight into learning trends in Australia providing evidence that traditional classroom instruction, including lectures, presentations and seminars, remains the most common method for delivering work-related training in 2016-17. Online instruction increased from 12.8% of reported training in 2013 to 19.2% in 2016-17.

Demonstrating the impact of learning

DAY ONE
Demonstrating the business impact of learning is the Holy Grail for many L&D practitioners. Yet it is also elusive, with organisational decision makers continuing to pigeonhole training as a catchall for a variety of performance problems and evaluation commonly deprioritised due to time, resource or cost pressures. These factors combine such that evaluation is either problematic from the onset, treated as an afterthought, or not pursued at all. While demonstrating impact can be difficult, it is nevertheless critical if L&D practitioners are to earn and keep their ‘seat at the table’. Drawing on a broad range of case studies, this presentation will highlight how answering three essential questions will enable you to develop a learning evaluation strategy capable of showcasing real impact.
