How the corporate learning ecosystem is evolving
Allison Anderson, Manager, Learning Innovations & Technology,
Intel Learning & Development, Intel Corporation 

This presentation offers a glimpse into the Ecosystem Learning Model, which is transforming the way Intel approaches corporate learning. We’ll look at how we’ve traditionally approached learning, the way people are really learning, and the new ways we are adapting to these natural learning styles. How do we connect people with content, with experts, and with each other in order to create a collaborative, participatory learning environment? How will this impact the role you play as a learning professional?

Allison Anderson is Manager of Learning Innovations & Technology and leader of the Learning Community of Practice within Intel Corporation. Her work focuses on the identification and application of new technologies and learning models for soft skills/HR learning and development. She is a charter member of the Learning CONSORTIUM and a veteran of Elliott Masie events.

Game On! Transforming Online Learning, One Game at a Time
Andrew Kimball, CEO, Qube Learning,

Last year, corporate America spent more than $125 billion on training. Research suggests that 96% of this money may have been wasted! Solving this problem requires thinking in three learning dimensions. Transforming information into knowledge that gets retained, understood, and applied successfully on the job requires high-quality learning content, activities and motivation. In this lively session, Andrew Kimball will demonstrate how many Global 1000 organizations are using Web 2.0 game-development tools to rapidly transform one-dimensional workshops, sales conferences, Web presentations, and online learning into more three dimensional learning competitions that receive rave reviews from participants and generate 10x greater retention.
