GS03 KEYNOTE: Learning and the Future of Work
11:15 AM - 12:30 PM Thursday, March 29
Technology isn’t only shaping how we learn; it’s also shaping how we live and work. And the changes are just getting started. Artificial intelligence, robotics, virtual and augmented reality, drones, and other technologies are increasingly making certain job functions obsolete. Behaviors and attitudes are changing what we want to do for work, and how we want to learn to do our jobs. In this thought-provoking closing keynote, Nancy Giordano will examine how technology is changing the nature of work, how companies will need to adapt for this future, and what this means for learning and development professionals. You will explore both the advancing technologies and the critical shifts that organizations (and the training departments that support them) must confront to stay relevant in the future.
