8 Reasons to Prioritize DevLearn This Fall
- DevLearn Conference & Expo’s dedication to the greatest leading-edge technologies in learning could help our team gain a stronger sense of what’s available and how we can put these tools and techniques into practice.
- The DevLearn program is created by learning professionals. The program team comes from the fields of instructional design, eLearning development, and L&D leadership. They pride themselves on staying current with what matters most.
- Experts will discuss the cutting-edge industry trends and learning strategies impacting our organization.
- The practical, focused sessions are future-leaning, and they’ll show us how to solve our team’s challenges and use today’s technology in better, more innovative ways.
- It’s a networking opportunity that can’t be compared. DevLearn creates the space for easy knowledge sharing so I’ll learn from peer experiences that only come from unscripted conversations.
- I’ll head back to the office with fresh ideas for my work, and new contacts that our team can reach out to after the conference.
- DevLearn offers the value of a large, comprehensive conference, plus the benefits of smaller-group experiences. These activities include Morning Buzz, an opportunity to meet new people and share best practices, insights, and tips; and DemoFest, which provides a glimpse at what other companies are creating in the L&D space and the chance to discuss the solutions with the people who designed and developed them.
- The expo is filled with more than 120 leading industry suppliers and the latest and greatest tools and technologies, all ready to help us solve our organization’s biggest challenges.
