#GuildChat for 03/27/2015: What We Learned at the Learning Solutions and Ecosystem 2015 Conferences

Our next #GuildChat takes place Friday March 27th at 11am PT / 2pm ET, shortly after the close of the 2015 Learning Solutions and Learning and Performance Ecosystem Conferences. During the chat we’ll be exploring some of the themes and takeaways from the conference.

2015-01-09_11-14-16During the 2015 Learning Solutions Conference we explored the convergence of technology and training, and the many ways that technology has changed how we approach training and performance support. At the Learning and Performance Ecosystem Conference we explored the changing face of strategy, and how our approaches to learning need to evolve to adapt to the changing environment of today.

LS15_350In this week’s #GuildChat we’re going to explore the some of the themes and takeaways from the conference. Whether you attended in person, followed the conference backchannel, or are just interested in exploring some of what was shared at these events, there will be plenty shared during this week’s chat.
