Event Description

Learning professionals across sectors strive to support their colleagues in learning how to learn and to continue learning, in the midst of rapidly changing, often disruptive, contexts. Roles and responsibilities are shifting, for learning professionals and for learners. For example, learning professionals are often required to provide more in less time. At the same time, learners are expected to direct more of their own learning, on their own time.

Many of us struggle to support learning success in all of the rapidly changing contexts where our learners live and work. We confront this reality at a time when business success depends on contributors who are learning, adapting and innovating to not just keep up with, but anticipate, changing markets, technology, and other trends. Nonprofit organizations work to prepare their participants to thrive in this reality, while higher education aspires to adapt to the changing needs of students who must compete in this new VUCA[1] world. Given these mandates, what does learning response-ability entail?

For this signature event, the Center to Advance Education for Adults (CAEA) in the School for New Learning--a leading innovator in adult learning for more than 45 years-- is bringing together four learning leaders from across the country, and across sectors, for a provocative conversation and idea-generation session with our panelists:

We invite you to join us for this rare opportunity to explore:

  • The implications for our roles as learning professionals and learners in the midst of VUCA
  • Innovative new learning approaches and strategies
  • How learners and learning professionals are taking and sharing response-ability for learning

Please join us to Connect, Share and Generate ideas with your learning colleagues!

There is no charge for this event, but registration is required. To register visit: https://learningresponse-ability.eventbrite.com

[1] VUCA stands for Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous. First coined by the US Army War College to describe changing conditions on the battlefield, it is now widely used to describe business, social, geopolitical and other rapidly changing contexts.
