The MASIE Center is an international Think Tank focused on the changing workforce and how they will learn and perform.
Organizational stories of success, failure and lessons learned. Leaders will share their stories and
engage you in focused dialogues about the implications of those stories for other organizations. These are all up-to-date, honest, under-the-hood explorations of learning innovation and implementation in real companies.
Explore an issue from a 360° perspective. Rather than a boring “panel”, a 360° View session will honor and
detail very different, diverse and even contradictory approaches to a single learning challenge or approach.
Engage in structured discussions on key learning topics and challenges in small, focused groups of
colleagues. These sessions will be led by one or more senior learning executives, who will present mini overviews of key questions and then engage you in exploratory conversations.
Step by Step:
Pragmatic sessions that provide practical advice and action steps to successfully implement and/or utilize
strategies, approaches to and technologies for learning.
Detailed, interactive comparisons of process, content or design in learning. Come prepared with data
about your organization to share and compare.
Drill-down break-out sessions with keynote speakers, who will expand on what they share during
their main stage interviews and take your questions.
Authors share key points and takeaways from their latest titles (either in person or by videoconference).
Regardless of whether you have read the books, all are welcome to attend and drill down with these authors! The ASTD Book Store has stocked all titles.
Interactive opportunities designed for you and your colleagues to experiment with, touch, try, see and
learn about various elements of learning.
In the age of innovation, learning fundamentals are even more important. These sessions will
focus on elements at the core of great learning that are key to sustainable and impactful learning strategies.
Explore new and changing learning delivery, design and formatting options. For example, how are colleges
offering massive open, online classes for tens of thousands of learners? We will explore the innovation vs. hype challenge!
Sessions led by Learning 2013 Cooperating Organizations about their latest research and work in the learning field.
Sessions led by senior learning leaders about emerging or current trends in the learning field.
