    Topic: Powerful Ideas L&D Should Steal

    1:00pm - 1:30pm HEADLINER TALK LIVE!

    Topic: Virtual Reality: The Next Revolution
    Speaker: Ian Beeson, Director, Blanchard Australia

    Topic Precis: We need a better answer.  Our existing training methods have served us for decades (and in some cases, millenia!), but our environment has changed and the needs and expectations of our audiences have changed.  What has served us in the past won’t take us to where we need to go – we need better answers to build high engagement, rapid absorption and optimal transfer of learned skills into organisational outcomes. The solution is available today.  Virtual Reality (VR) learning has been successfully used for safety onboarding and technical training for a few years, but is only now being applied to critical skills, such as leadership, inclusion and team building.  Using technology that has previously been reserved for the high-end gaming community, VR training has now reached a new level.

    Topic: Kick in the Heart. A New Way Forward for Compliance Training.
    Speaker: Bevan Preston, Learning Design Specialist, Vodafone Australia

    Topic Precis: Compliance training is a conundrum. No one wants to do it. No one likes doing it. It doesn’t create behavioural change. As evidence in IR disputes, even courts are calling into question the efficacy of ‘tick and flick’ style compliance training. So why do we keep making them? When tasked with supporting the roll-out of TPG Telecom’s Respect in the Workplace policy, the Learning Solutions Design team decided to turn every compliance training trope on its head. To disarm learners of their cynicism and create real opportunity to effect behavioural change, the only way forward was to do something radical and unexpected. Kick them in the heart. Bevan will discuss the design thinking behind this new approach.

    12:30pm - 1:00pm HEADLINER TALK LIVE!

    Topic: Rethinking Online Education Post COVID-19
    Speaker: Chris Walsh, Academic Director, VU Online

    Topic Precis: With the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020-2021, educational institutions around the world rapidly converted their on-campus teaching into online delivery. Undoubtedly, this compulsory response to the pandemic has resulted in a highly variable approach to course design and delivery. Historically, low student motivation and engagement due to feelings of isolation and the lack of engaged, collaborative and active learning, have plagued online education resulting in high attrition. These same hurdles are now present at scale globally. This presentation outlines an online model of university education that works to turn around students’ high attrition rates, feelings of isolation and disconnectedness through high levels of academic and non-academic student support. The model challenges the notion of what constitutes high-quality online education in the present and post COVID-19.
