As you all know we will be organising another online conference this year. The 2nd international on-line conference will focus on “Innovation in Training Practice”.
Once again we have been very lucky with the numbers of speakers who have offered to present at the event. It is quite a diverse lot of people from all over Europe. Their expertise and insights on how to foster Innovation in practice are invaluable and I am sure we will also benefit from it.
In the next couple of weeks we will be posting more about the conference and the magnificient group of speakers. Today we we will finally reveal who our Keynote Speaker will be.
We are very proud to announce that Dr. Lilia Efimova will be our Keynote Speaker.
Lilia works as a researcher at Novay, studying social media, changing workplace, knowledge and learning. In her work she bring together her experiences of facilitating learning and managing change, her interest in technologies and her passion for understanding how people work. Lilia has recently graduated from the Utrecht University, where she completed her PhD on “Passion at work: blogging practices of knowledge workers”. More information about her can be found here.
So, what will Lilia talk about?
Our keynote speaker has decided to talk about:
Understanding networked professionals: fun, value and challenges of learning and working differently
The worlds of learning and work are changing: many organisations are facing challenges of figuring out how communities, networked learning and social media fit next to traditional training programs. Supporting new ways of learning requires understanding of networked professionals: what drives them to work and learn differently and what challenges they are facing. In this talk I draw on examples from my research on blogging practices of knowledge workers to discuss how to support development of networked professionals.
That should be reason enough not to miss it!
