Learning Technologies Asia 2020 will happen on March 23 – 24, 10:00am – 3:45pm Singapore time.
From 2010-2019, we were already experiencing radical changes in learning and development and then 2020 hit. COVID-19 and some of the other unrest in the world have forced companies to take a hard look at their business models, strategies, and budgets. As a result, last year L&D didn’t simply evolve. It transformed. Leading organizations have embraced new technology, tools, and mindsets not just to enhance employee effectiveness and engagement, but to ensure they remain viable and competitive through the current upheavals and into the next decade.
Join Dani Johnson, Cofounder and Principal Analyst at RedThread Research, and Heather Gilmartin Adams, Senior Analyst at RedThread Research, for an exploration of the near future of employee development, including:
- Technology and trends that have fundamentally changed the way we develop employees
- What will matter to organizations moving forward and how that changes L&D’s job
- The future of work, the worker, and what it means for ensuring a skilled workforce
This presentation examines how and why a Learning Management System (LMS) and a Learning Experience Platform (LXP) can and should be used together to achieve a modern approach to the development of capability in an organisation. Along the way it will look at integration of the LMS and the LXP to achieve best practice User Experience (UX)
In early 2020, the advent of COVID-19 pandemic battered the global economy and education systems, shutting businesses and schools worldwide. As businesses worldwide postpone and cancel in-person meetings in response to the pandemic, workplace learning is emerging as one of the earliest and hardest-hit business activities. However, the effort in reskilling at the business-unit level or a company-wide aspirational transformation cannot simply stop on critical workplace learning, even as business move rapidly to put employee safety first. Digital and virtual learning programs were already on the rise before COVID-19 struck, and we already see a marked increase in such learning programmes, which many younger employees embrace. The unprecedented crisis reshapes and challenges learning professionals to ensure short-term operational continuity and strategic measures, such as going beyond alternative digital learning strategies to safeguard their long-term viability. More importantly, this period has seen the acceleration of higher education’s digital transformation, giving rise to new opportunities for learning and development professionals to reimagine the future of workplace learning in a post-Covid-19 world. The experimentation in digital learning provided stakeholders with the ideal situation to reconsider leveraging Artificial Intelligence (AI) in workplace learning innovation. This talk focuses on several strategic application of AI in workplace learning.
Right now, upskilling your workforce is a matter of survival.
Those who act fast have a game-changing opportunity to get ahead of the competition.
Massive workforce shifts in 2020 have forced countless organizations to rethink how work gets done. A key piece of that is supporting workers in keeping their skills current – and building new ones. If you’re wondering what skills are critical to you moving in 2021, it depends entirely on who you are, where you work, and what you do.
Degreed published the State of Skills report to help you identify where skills are most at-risk of becoming obsolete. Among the 5,000+ workers, team managers, and business leaders we surveyed, demand is strongest for technological skills. However, they’re also looking to develop their social and cognitive skills.
Join us for a conversation on where you should focus your energy and investment, and understand what skills are the most urgent in your industry and country!
How in the arch of time for Learning systems/platforms it’s gone through from being a novelty through to just being useful, but last year as we pushed the boundaries and change the way we work. Learning can now be found anywhere, at any time, contextually without consideration that someone must GO to the LMS. The emergence of technology as a central hub for work and collaboration also see the shift from Learning and Learning Systems into a Transparent process – something that has happened when technology has found its balance between need and innovation
While the word humanizing tech means designing technology to be better for humans, join me to discover how to Humanize Mind-sets to meet the demands of evolving technology in the L & D Space.

With rapid changes in technology demands and uncertainties related to the global pandemic, organizational growth hinges on employees with the right behavioral and technical competencies. Though digital transformation creates tremendous opportunities to address many challenges in our current time, it requires people to leverage the investment in these technologies, and leadership development which is agile and innovative to maintain engagement and morale
How might we combine the best of working and learning, both virtually and physically? As many of us now know, virtual teams are cost-effective and convenient, but they can be isolating. They can also fail to foster social networks and casual conversations that promote creativity and innovation. Online learning can help us boost productivity and innovation with new skills and ideas, and it is wonderfully cost-effective. However, it can be very disengaging and sometimes fails to translate into real changes at work.
Join Dr. Meadows as she shares insights and behind-the-scenes stories about virtual collaboration, transformative global education, and ELO (Engaged Learning Online), the studio-based approach at S P Jain School of Global Management. What works? When do we still need to gather in-person? What’s on the horizon for the Future of Work and how to manage it? What is on the horizon for learning and using it to unleash productivity and innovation? What ideas will you take back to the office, to unleash your own future, too?
2020 was the year of uncertainty. Countries, organisations, and individuals were all thrown into uncertainty and forced to adapt. As we progress into 2021, there is more stability and resilience, yet no one is certain what the workplace will look like at the end of the year or even in two to three years time.
What will your organization workplace look like? Will you return to a physical office? Will it remain remote? Or will you be able to find a hybrid balance? More importantly, how do you design learning and development programs that can transition from virtual to hybrid to physical?
Kwong will share “learning principles” that helped Own The Room and it’s clients transition from physical trainings to virtual trainings, but will also guide them into the future, regardless of what form the workplace takes.

The future of learning is “Flash or Invisible Learning” – we may not have a Learning and Development function in the company anymore. Flash learning is a super small bite size learning using personalized learning (AI) technology. Invisible learning on the other hand, are all learnings that are embedded in the flow of everything e.g. work and life. In my opinion, the future of learning no longer focuses on the skill, instead will heavily focus on business performance or career growth. Join me on my session and understand my thoughts as the conversations that I will have with the top management in the future will be entirely different
