The Open Learning Revolution
Wednesday, March 21, 2012 from 5:30 PM to 8:30 PM (EST)
Sydney, New South Wales
The digital revolution has spawned immense opportunities for new forms of learning to be shared, worldwide.
Current business models of learning are stuck. Classroom training still dominates, with R&D cycles unable to respond quickly to the need for ever-quicker innovation.
The real learning takes place outside of work, schools and virtual classrooms. It’s a revolution of social and open learning in communal and civic spaces.
Bring your ideas and experiences to The Open Learning Revolution, and explore the platforms, techniques, and innovations that are reshaping the way we learn.
