This year the 2020 Learning Technologies Summer Forum (#LTSF20) will take place online, looking at some of the key topics we examined at February’s conference. Once again, the Summer event is an opportunity to interact, experiment and try some new things together.

Donald Taylor, LTSF Chair, explains: “The Summer Forum has always focused on the practical and on sharing experience, and we’ve never been afraid to try out new things. This year, as well as going entirely online, we’re experimenting with the online conference format, providing a main structure around which other things will happen, including discussions on Twitter, the chance to catch up with speakers after their talks, and more.”

“We have great speakers and facilitators and over 20 sessions during the week covering all aspects of workplace learning. But the great content is only half the story. The L&D community is all about sharing, and we know that we’ll have great input from – and interaction with – everyone who attends.”

Summer Forum speakers include leading analyst David Wilson, Facebook's Kevin M Yates, Andrew Jacobs of HRMC, MOOC expert Hannah Gore, analytics specialist Derek Mitchell, Lori Niles-Hofmann on the invisible LMS, social learning expert Mark Britz, Mirjam Neelen on evidence-based practice, arch design Rob Hubbard and former BBC CLO Nigel Paine.

We’ll also have different perspectives. One great advantage of online events is the ability to serve an international audience. So, as with our regular LSG webinars, we expect global participation and a chance to learn from each other, world-wide.

The full programme of activities is on the LTSF 2020 website.
