Grange Tower Bridge Hotel, London 15th November 2018
Curation, xAPI, Artificial Intelligence – all exciting leading-edge themes in learning that will be high on the CONNECT 2018 agenda. But topping the bill this year are our delegates themselves.
Featuring thought-leaders, experts, authors and panel debates, CONNECT is also the only UK learning technology conference to feature personal networking sessions prominently as part of its programme.
Our delegates shape the agenda based on what they’ve told us they need to help them succeed as learning professionals. This is our guarantee: in just one day you’ll discover a new world of ideas, friends and associates to empower your learning.Reserve your place

AI will change the nature of work itself. It will therefore change:
Donald will share real examples across the learning journey - from engagement to assessment. He will also explore how this affects the design of online learning and the new skills required to deal with AI.
Donald will discuss all of these issues using real examples, with an emphasis on how the design of learning will change.
Donald is an EdTech Entrepreneur, CEO, Professor, Researcher, Blogger and Speaker. He was CEO and one of the original founders of Epic Group plc. As well as being the CEO of Wildfire Ltd., an AI-driven online learning company, he also invests in, and advises, EdTech companies. Describing himself as ‘free from the tyranny of employment’, he is a board member of Cogbooks, LearningPool and Deputy Chair of Brighton Dome & Arts Festival. He is also a Visiting Professor and involved in research into AI in learning. He has worked in schools, vocational, higher, corporate and adult learning, delivering real projects to real learners.
As content delivery gets easier, learning design will become more about solving the harder problems. Learning design has historically been about showing people how to do the right things, but actually getting them to change their behavior can be another story. It’s particularly challenging to get people to change those intractable habits and behaviors that everyone struggles to avoid, despite the wealth of available information about better choices.
This session will explore how to design with behavior change in mind. You will examine behavior change from a number of different angles, using techniques from the fields of neuroscience, behavioral economics, behavioral psychology, persuasive technology and user experience.
Author of "Design For How People Learn", Julie is a world-renowned independent consultant and instructional designer with more than 15 years of experience creating highly interactive elearning experiences for clients from Fortune 500 companies and technology startups to grant-funded research initiatives.
