Next month Virtual College will be holding their first seminar at Learning Live. Dan Nolan, Learning Technology Consultant at Virtual College, who is passionate about growth mindsets and developing learning cultures will be leading the seminar and sharing his thoughts and advice on the power of a learning culture. 

In a time where working environments are changing due to advances in technology, such as AI, it is important that organisations and their employees quickly learn to adapt or ‘get better at getting better’, as Dan describes it.

This hinges on the successful development of an effective learning culture and a growth mindset. 

Dan will be covering topics such as: 

  • The definition of a learning culture 
  • What an organisation with a learning culture looks like 
  • The barriers to implementing a learning culture 
  • The importance of trust 
  • The impact short-term thinking has on our organisations and how we behave

Dan strongly believes that this is a topic that all organisations need to address. “Due to technological developments and its effect on job roles, we are seeing a focus shift from technological skills to softer skills,” he explains. “This will naturally have an effect on the training programmes needed, and it is important that organisations acknowledge this and ensure they have an effective learning culture to support their employees to adapt and develop the skills they need for this changing world.”

Event: Learning Live, London
Seminar title: The Power of Learning Culture
Time and data: 3pm – 3:45pm, 4th September
