Learning • Technology • Design™ (LTD) is a virtual conference designed specifically for professionals in the business of continuing education and professional development. The goal of the event is to help attendees find new and better ways to engage learners and create lasting impact through the effective use of technology.
Live sessions for LTD 2018 were held throughout the month of February, entirely online. Registration for LTD 2018 provides access to recordings from all of the live sessions as well as to the online community – including active discussion boards – for the experience.
LTD recorded sessions cover topics key to the success of a learning business, like effective marketing, designing for learner engagement, and learning business strategy. The sessions emphasize case studies and actionable approaches to technology-enabled and technology-enhanced learning, and are led primarily by practitioners who live and breathe professional development, continuing education, and lifelong learning, day in and day out.
“The LTD virtual conference was a high-quality experience—the speakers and content were great. For a small nonprofit, the virtual experience allows us to get more education than if we had to travel…a real time saver.”
There are many good conferences that focus on the role of technology in learning education, but nearly all are aimed at corporations or academic institutions. While some events aimed at the association sector provide content related to learning and technology, the selection is usually quite limited and not the primary focus of these events.
Learning • Technology • Design was born of the recognition that organizations in the business of lifelong learning have different needs than their corporate and academic counterparts. Moreover, given that we are living in the midst of a massive, technology-fueled shift in the learning landscape, it is past time for a technology-focused event for organizations in the lifelong learning business. Learning • Technology • Design is that event.
In 2016, Learning • Technology • Design was held as a two-day, face-to-face event. In 2017, it was held as a three-day virtual conference—offered entirely online—expanding the event’s reach and hewing even closer to the goal of exploring the effective use of technology for learning. In 2018, Learning • Technology • Design expands to a month-long, online format, allowing more time for reflection and application of ideas while allowing participants to keep up with demands at the office.
“LTD was time well spent! The quality of the presentations, the practical applications, and the actionable ideas are already making a difference in our education.”
