Imbedding Learning in the Executive Mind

Workplace Learning
"Trainers and training functions sometimes struggle with gaining executive mind space, being actively engaged in projects from conception, and effectively communicating the tangible benefits that ‘best fit for purpose’ learning initiatives can deliver to organisations and individuals. Gaining a voice with executives involves networking and influencing, understanding your business, and selling the story of training and education benefits. Despite our best efforts, we sometimes fail and that can come down to one thing – failing to deliver on commitments. In this presentation, strategies to imbed learning in executive mind space are considered using practical examples from Australia’s Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) and personal reflections of your facilitator – Scott Jacovou-Johnson. With an emphasis on delivering on commitments, the presentation explores strategies to engage with senior managers, and enjoying the positive outcomes this produces.Take-AwaysParticipant take-aways include:*Understanding business needs and performance gaps that learning can bridge.*Engaging with learning – top down and bottom up.*Networking, making contact and engaging key decision makers – selling the solution.*Delivering on commitments – getting the basics right.-Understanding when to say ‘no’.-Setting realistic deliverables and identifying milestones.-Monitoring and providing progress updates.-Sharing learnings for future improvements.*Evaluating outcomes and communicating educational results."

Artificial Intelligence in Education

School Teachers
    should students learn for the age of Artificial Intelligence? To educate a “whole child for a whole world”, education systems must curate their traditional curricula (Maths, etc.) and focus on what is most important for success in life and work (e.g. more probabilities and statistics; computer science; social sciences; entrepreneurship; wellness; etc.).To address the imperatives of a modern world, curricula must aim at developing the four dimensions of a 21st century learner:
  • Knowledge (essential content and core concepts; modernized and modern disciplines)
  • Skills (“21st Century Skills” or “4 C’s”)
  • Character (Social-Emotional Learning)
  • Meta-Learning (“learn how to learn”: metacognition and growth mindset)Lastly, A.I. will also afford capabilities to advance adaptive learning, in all of sequential, Socratic, and self-directed constructivist systems.These systems will vastly multiply the abilities of teachers to deliver all of the above needs at scale.

Adapting to and recognising how pedagogy has to cater for the 21st Century

School Teachers
The challenges and opportunities that the 21st century bring are causing some schools and education systems to re-evaluate how they operate. However, this might be a simple thing to state, but the real challenge for schools and education systems is two-fold, one, recognising this change and more specifically that the pedagogy has to change as well, and second, how to adapt our pedagogy to this change once one recognises the fact.This session will explore how a growth mindset can help schools recognise both ways and why schools should recognise that 21st-century education needs to change as well as how pedagogy can adapt to and meet the challenges and opportunities that the 21st-century presents.

How remote working has changed the way we work securely

Breakout Seminars
The education section, particularly higher education has been hard hit by the global pandemic. Last year, over 34,000 international students arrived in Australia to start degrees. In 2020 that number is now just 40. This has huge implications for funding various programs within universities. And at a time when cyberattacks have been on the increase, IT and security teams are most likely to feel the brunt of budget cuts, along with many other disciplines.The challenge however is double-edged. Not only is the lack of funding an issue, but with remote working now the norm, security teams are dealing with a multitude of endpoints now out in the open in an uncontrolled environment. This creates the need to rapidly redesign technology infrastructure whilst revisiting both risk appetite and security controls.We delve into the steps your education institution can take to ensure you’re resilient through the pandemic, including how you can keep your applications secure and gain greater clarity into risk, saving your staff time

The Journey to Learner Advocacy

LinkedIn Learning
Today’s world of adult education has deviated from learner to corporate centricity as speed to market, achieving positive Return on Investment (ROI), bottom line profits and learner completion rates counter balance the need for appropriate strategies that develop skills and knowledge, and are ‘best fit for purpose’.Providing a learners’ voice, through effective advocacy, is critical to ensuring learning strategies are ‘best fit for purpose’ for both individual learners and the achievement of corporate metrics. This presentation links the concept of learner advocacy to the selection of optimal learning strategies using practical examples of research, engagement and networking from Australia’s Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) and personal reflections of your facilitator – Scott Jacovou-Johnson.Participant take-aways include:*Exploring the term ‘optimal’ in a corporate environment.*Understanding the learner advocacy concept and its role in determining optimal learning strategies.*Applying a three-step process for understanding learner needs:01.Knowing Your Learners – conducting research to understand learner demographics.02.Understanding Your Learners – engaging learners to understand how they like to learn.03.Networking with Your Learners – imbedding yourself in the learner’s environment to gain context.*Using learner knowledge to select optimal learning strategies that are also ‘fit for purpose’.*Customising learning strategies to individual needs through practical accommodations.

The online student experience

Higher Ed & Tertiary Education
Deakin University is a multi-modal educator offering premium online and on-campus learning. Our insights from the COVID-19 pandemic re-focus our curriculum renewal and recommend:
  • Invest in managing student expectations and build confidence with familiar tools.. Choose reliable technologies or treat any new learning experience as a shared trial.
  • Practical learning can and should be multi-modal. Choose the format that best fits the intended learning outcomes and maximises student access to learning. Don’t assume that on-campus is always better than online or vice versa.
  • Prepare students to work together. Give them tools and strategies to collaborate online and build their skills. Make good use of the strengths of online in managing information and workflow, and offer multi-modal interactions with either synchronous or asynchronous modes so groups can find the most effective approach.

The Unified Theory of Everything People: Build and retain your 2030 workforce

LinkedIn Learning
COVID-19 was the first (and hopefully most significant) disruption of this decade, but it will certainly not be the last. To seize opportunities and overcome challenges presented by the inevitable disruptions that technology, climate change and the tension between globalisation and localisation will bring over the next few years, we must make significant changes to the way we build and retain teams. As L & D professionals, one of your roles in the next few years will be to help your stakeholders understand very specific, key aspects of hiring and retaining a disruption proof workforce.Good enough will not be good enough in the future. We must be agile, flexible, innovative and resilient.This requires a rethink of how we hire and manage people because our current practices were designed for a different age and a different workforce.The Unified Theory of Everything People is a holistic, practical model. It is based on two decades of extensive research and will help organisations and people leaders with practical solutions they can use immediately to build and retain the workforce they will need to survive this decade of disruption.
