Summer may be in full swing, with everyone taking or looking forward to a well-earned break, but Teach on Mars is already planning a packed programme of activity for the end of the holidays. One of the first major events on the early Autumn calendar for the start-up that never sleeps is the Learning Live event in London on September 5 and 6.
Organised by the Learning & Performance Institute (LPI), the UK’s leading industry organization for the L&D sector, Learning Live is billed as a “unique experience designed exclusively for senior decision-makers in corporate learning”. Part-thought leadership symposium and part-trade show, it has become an unmissable annual rendez-vous for the Chief Learning Officer community and bleeding-edge EdTech vendors alike. And because it’s where all the movers and shakers from the organizational learning space in the UK and beyond go to showcase the latest innovations and debate today’s hottest topics, it’s the obvious next port-of-call for the red-and-white rocket of Teach on Mars.
Rubbing shoulders with all the big names in the UK digital learning marketplace, the Teach on Mars team will be exhibiting the latest features and functionalities of its next-generation mobile learning platform at its booth throughout the two-day event. Just as excitingly, the team will also be delivering a Business Solution Workshop as part of the programme of conferences and keynote speeches which is such a critical part of the Learning Live show.
Under the intriguing title “Next-gen Mobile Learning: the secret performance weapon in everyone’s pocket,” the workshop will be led by Adam Charlesworth of the Teach on Mars International Business Unit, with spotlight contributions from both a flagship customer – Eleonora Carrarelli, International Education Manager with Acqua di Parma – and a strategic partner – Stephen Walsh, co-Founder and CEO of Anders Pink, one of the leaders in the rapidly-growing field of content curation.
The questions covered will be among some of the most business-critical facing L&D professionals today. How do you combine bespoke, off-the shelf and curated content to get the digital learning mix right? How can you break through the constraints of traditional delivery formats to allow learning to have impact where it is needed in the field? How do you “operationalize” your learning initiative to go beyond skills and get to what really matters – performance?
And as an EdTech vendor inviting both a client and a strategic partner to join them on the same stage, Teach on Mars also hopes to illustrate just how the value ecosystems are changing in modern organizational learning, and what opportunities those changes will bring to the whole industry.
Learning Live takes place at ETC. Venues, 155 Bishopsgate, London on September 5-6, 2018.
