The landscape has changed, and content alone is no longer sufficient. Whilst accessibility of content was a primary goal for many memberships bodies and associations, it is the contextualising of this content that matters. We are witnessing the humanification of digital content, and a move away from 'the conspiracy of convenience'. Members are looking for meaningful interactions and associations with strong social responsibility. There is a sense of a wider purpose for learning, which remains an economic imperative. Associations must look to support members with learning experiences that they value and that have impact.

Edmund Monk, Chief Executive of the Learning and Performance Institute, will provide insight into how people are learning now, and how they will learn post-Covid.

  • Where learning is really happening
  • The three things learning must be
  • Why context is overtaking content
  • What great organisations are doing to help employees develop

Educating the grain industry is one of Gafta’s key responsibilities—but with its membership spread across over 95 countries, face-to-face training is not accessible for everyone. Gafta worked with D2L to rejuvenate its distance learning program, providing a better user experience and innovative new courses. 

What started as redeveloping existing material actually ended up in the creation of an online education strategy with the introduction of new courses, approaches, and material. Starting with the conception of a new project, its objectives and financial backing, this session will look at how GAFTA went from zero to hero in their e-learning provision.
