Covering topics that help you improve the reach, revenue, and impact of your educational and learning offerings

The program for the Learning • Technology • Design 2018 virtual conference was built based on input from learning professionals about their top challenges and opportunities and the insight gleaned from Tagoras’s years of working with organizations in the business of lifelong learning. Here you see a high-level schedule as well as the topics offered at Learning • Technology • Design 2018. We also plan to incorporate a community aspect to enable participants to connect with peers and share and learn informally between sessions. Click the titles below to learn more about the sessions and who will lead them. A detailed calendar-view schedule for Learning • Technology • Design 2018 with links to full session descriptions is also available.


Content PodsTM

First three Tuesdays in February, 12:30 to 1:30 pm Eastern

Shorter Content Pod sessions (typically 20 to 30 minutes each) will be offered on the first three Tuesdays of February, with each Tuesday featuring two or three sessions, held back to back. They will focus on key knowledge and skills. Each Content Pod will be oriented around a tool, a process visual, or a brief study with clear, actionable insights that can be applied to participants’ day-to-day work. While some Content Pods have been identified already, we plan to add others in the lead up to and even after the start of LTD 2018 to allow us to address emerging issues, questions that arise, and suggestions from participants. The Content Pods will also be recorded. Potential topics include:

  • Leveraging the Value Ramp
  • Developing Learner Personas
  • Interactive Video 101
  • Advanced E-mail Tactics
  • Strategy Session Hot Seats
  • Mentoring for Today’s Generation(s) at Scale: Virtual and Face-to-Face

Priming and Synthesis

Four Thursdays in February, 11:00 to 11:30 am Eastern and 3:00 to 3:30 pm Eastern

Jeff Cobb and Celisa Steele, creators of Learning • Technology • Design, will offer opening and closing sessions to bookend the Thursday workshops. These sessions will help prime participants for what’s to come and process what they’ve learned. They will also be recorded.

Follow-Up Fridays

Four Fridays in February, 12:30 to 1:30 pm Eastern

Follow-up Friday sessions are agenda-less and offer an additional (and optional) opportunity for Q&A with Jeff Cobb and Celisa, creators of Learning • Technology • Design, and a chance for ad-hoc, participant-driven discussions.
