The LearningCafe UnConference has over the last 6 years become a regular fixture in the L&D professional development calendar with a reputation for high-quality content and presenters scoring above 4.15/5 for the past six and selling out. So why the pivot?
“It ain’t broken but we fixed the UnConference”.
The reason – Learning in the workplace has become critical to business success but L&D is not adapting fast enough. The new focus and format are designed to help L&D, acquire new skillsets and mindset.
The Confluence is for Learning Professionals interested in the management and design of organisational Learning including Learning Manager, Business Partners, Capability Professionals, Project Managers, Team Leads, Learning Technologists.
What is changing?
More focus on skill acquisition – Skills and knowledge development in the form of workshops. The 1-hour session will comprise of three stages 1. Raising awareness through primer 2. Experiencing through a mini-workshop/demo 3. Gaining insights through a panel discussion on the practical impact ie use case, budget and opportunities.
Target Audience – Learning Professionals interested in the management and design of organisational Learning including Learning Manager, Business Partners, Project Managers, Team Leads, Learning Technologists.
Research-Based Content – We are including more research-based content and involving experts in the fields.
Venue – We have a more space and easily accessible venue – UTS Aerial.
What is not changing?
UnConference format – While the format remains one focussed on the discussion (UnConference format) we have pivoted in the following ways.
