Panel Presentation LTG156
Building a Learner Ecosystem
Date Thursday, Nov 28 Time – Room Köpenick II/III
'Learning ecosystems' are a hot topic right now. But discussion around them too often focuses on technology and omits the most important part - the people. In this session we look at practical case studies of creating 'Learner ecosystems', exploring how private sector companies and non-profits alike can build complex, rich people-oriented cultures that create the context to enable authentic learning.
