LINE Communications, one of Europe’s leading providers of learning and communications solutions will be delivering a hands-on workshop on mobile learning at Great Ormond Street Hospital’s (GOSH) Learning Innovations Conference, which is due to take place on the 19th of November.

The workshop, titled, ‘Making Mobile Work for You’, will be delivered by LINE’s Design Director, Andrew Joly, and LINE’s User Experience Architect, Katie Hart. In the one-hour session, they will dispel some of the myths about mobile learning, help delegates to get a clearer picture of what it is and where it's going, as well as illustrating how simply effective apps can be designed and created.

Andrew Joly explains: “Whether you are already involved in designing learning apps or you are only just considering taking the plunge, this session will give you a fresh perspective on how to make mobile learning work. You will walk away feeling inspired and equipped with a mobile design pack which you can use in your own organisations.”

The Learning Innovations Conference is the first of its kind orchestrated by GOSH and it is open to anyone with an interest in technology and education. The conference will consist of key speakers from across the field of organisational learning, outlining the innovation and technology used in the workplace to support learning and development. 

Speakers include Donald H Taylor, Chairman of the Learning and Performance Institute, Laura Overton, MD of Towards Maturity and Rob Hubbard, Chairman of the ELearning Network.

The conference is open to everyone, not just GOSH employees, and delegates will have a chance to network with other leading members of the learning and development industry.

Edward Lines, Account Manager at LINE, says: “LINE has worked in partnership with Great Ormond Street Hospital since the end of 2012 and we are delighted to be involved with this brand new event organised by their L&D team. It’s great to see the organisation take such a hands-on approach to innovation in the field of learning technologies. It promises to be a fantastic day.”
