USDLA is excited to announce its opening keynote speaker is Elliot Masie, current Chair of The Learning Consortium. Mr. Masie will speak on Monday, May 1, 2017 at 9:00am ET at the Hilton Indianapolis Hotel & Suites.
As USDLA celebrates its 30th Anniversary, we all know the conversation about e-Learning is shifting. At USDLA 2017, Mr. Masie will present, “The Many “E”s of e Learning!” In asking the “E” in e-Learning and expanding from Electronic Learning to the wider set of personal and organizational dimensions, Elliott Masie will provide a unique perspective about the following Learning Shifts:
- “E” for Everywhere Learning – Bringing Learning to the Learner – rather than the Learner to the Learning Room.
- “E” for Engaging Learning – Moving from Presentation to Challenging, Competitive and Cooperative Engagement of Learners.
- “E” for Evidence and Research on Learning – Big Data, Metrics and Accountability for Learning Approaches
- “E” for Everyone as Learners – Personalization, Machine Learning and Learners as Co-Designers
- “E” for Experiences – Mixed Reality, Labs vs. Classrooms and Expertise from Open Sources
- “E” for Effective Curation – The Learner and the Organization Must Curate from the Panorama of Learning Choices
In sum, Elliott will share evolving and disruptive dimensions of our opportunities in the changing world of Learning.
Elliott Masie is the Host and Facilitator of the Learning Conference each fall. He heads The MASIE Center, a Saratoga Springs, NY think tank focused on how organizations can support learning and knowledge within the workforce. He leads the Learning CONSORTIUM, a coalition of 230 global organizations cooperating on the evolution of learning strategies. In addition, he is the editor of Learning TRENDS by Elliott Masie, an Internet newsletter read by over 52,000 business executives worldwide, and a regular columnist in professional publications.
Elliott’s professional focus has been in the fields of corporate learning, organizational performance and emerging technology. He has developed models for accelerating the spread of knowledge, learning and collaboration throughout organizations.
