The second Great Ormond Street Hospital Learning Innovations Conference (GOSHLIC 2015) on 11 March announces the first release of speakers and topics at the event with more to follow. Aimed at all L&D professionals in an NHS role or any other type of organisation, GOSHLIC will feature the very latest learning and technology innovations.

The conference programme has been designed by the Great Ormond Street Learning and Development team to inform and entertain attendees with common L&D challenges, regardless of their sector or organisation. The focus of the sessions will be practical advice and case study insights, as well as a look at a wide variety of tools and technologies.

Some of the highlights will include:

  • ‘How do we get healthcare experience in a Tin Can’ delivered by Fiona Leteney, BUPA
  • ‘Right training, right person, right time’ by Nick Lee, University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust
  • ‘Using mobiles and tablets for learning’ by Andy Nock, Quintiles Pharmaceutical
  • ‘The whole 100: 70:20:10’ revealed by Michelle Parry-Slater of Kairos
  • ‘Discover new technology for an easier way to create content’ by Gill Chester, Little Man Project

Donald H Taylor will be chairing the event  at the Institute of Healthcare in London for over 100 attendees, providing a unique and cost effective opportunity for learning, discussion and networking.

Fittingly, the event is being supported by the learning and development community with a growing list of vendors and learning technology providers ready to showcase their latest innovations through a mix of interactive demonstrations and a small, hands-on exhibition area.

Tickets can be reserved online or by contacting goshlic@ascotcommunications.com. Bookings made before the end of February 2015 receive a discounted rate of £195.
