Innovations in Learning Conference

On September 24-26, 2007, Brandon Hall Research will be hosting the “Innovations in Learning Conference” at the Marriott Hotel in Santa Clara, California. This new event is designed to showcase the emerging technologies that are being adopted today to create the next generation of learning.

How This Conference Will Be Different
The theme of the conference is “Doing, Playing, Sharing and Understanding.” This event will maximize the participants’ hands on experience with innovative tools and technologies and provide them with a glimpse into the future of learning. Participants will leave the conference with actual skills they can apply to advance innovative learning within their organizations.

How This Conference Will Be Different

  • Hands-on. It will be all about doing things, not just listening. You’ll have opportunities to see examples, try tools, and talk to experienced people.

  • No aisles of booths. Gone is the expo hall. Vendors will be in more casual settings. You’ll be able to have more meaningful conversations and see their solutions in action. (Vendors want this too!)

  • Interaction. The conference will be set up to foster conversations. You won’t just be sitting and listening. More conversations, more questions and answers.

  • Real world. The focus will be on doing real things in the real world. You won’t hear platitudes and punditry but solid advice and examples.

  • Award winners. Awards finalists will be showing what they’ve done. You’ll be able to talk to them one-on-one. See what the judges rated as the best.
