Scrimmage Set To Sponsor Training Magazine’s Innovations In Training Event This Fall in Dublin, Ireland
With Scrimmage as a lead Sponsor, Training Magazine is bringing its popular Innovations In Training (IIT) event to Dublin, Ireland, 7-9 November 2019, in conjunction with the World Conference on Online Learning, 3-7 November 2019 at the Dublin Convention Centre.
Innovations In Training is a three-day Dublin field trip for learning and development professionals who want to experience innovative ways to push beyond traditional approaches and apply new ways to design and deploy more engaging training. As an immersive experience, the event is limited to 50 participants.
"We will be asking big questions about the future of education at the ICDE World Conference on Online Learning, and are pleased to feature cutting-edge workplace learning examples during the post-conference Innovations In Training Dublin," says Professor Mark Brown, Conference Chair and Director of the National Institute for Digital Learning at Dublin City University. "These events combine the best research, theory and practice to help inspire trainers and educators to design better, more engaging and impactful experiential learning."
IIT Dublin features visits to cutting-edge simulation labs, innovation centres and training sites, along with in-depth innovation chats and immersive experiences that demonstrate innovative approaches to learning at work. Site visits are set to include IBM Research Ireland, the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland, and Ernst & Young, Dublin.
Innovators who will share their stories include: Ernst & Young’s Global Chief Learning Officer Brenda Sugrue; Skillnet Ireland’s Executive Director, Tracey Donnery; Steve Boucher and Travis May, two senior learning leaders from Mastercard; Suzi Jarvis, Director of the University College Dublin’s Innovation Academy; Dermot O'Flynn, Director of Professional Development at the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland; and several researchers from IBM.
An Immersive Lab will bring learning innovations to life, giving participants an opportunity to try hands-on demos of emerging technologies, such as virtual reality, augmented reality, micro-simulations and mobile learning.
"I learned there are very many ways to innovate and rediscovered my motivation," says Michelle Stallard, training center team leader at Rolls-Royce. "IIT has really motivated me to go back and share what I've learned with my team and encouraged me to take the initiative to improve our business."
Dublin is an ideal place to “go on the road” to see, touch and experience how the future of learning is already happening. Ireland is the epicenter of technology for learning, thanks to massive investments from Enterprise Ireland and other accelerators. Further, Irish learning technologies are applied around the world, while higher education institutions, like Dublin City University, are driving new applications of Digital Learning and Massive Online Open Courses (MOOCs).
Innovations In Training (IIT) launched in 2016, in partnership with the University of Central Florida’s Institute for Simulation & Training, and has become a flagship experience of Training Magazine’s two conferences in the United States – the Training Conference & Expo and the TechLearn Conference.
This Dublin-based event expands Innovations In Training outside of the United States for the first time, and marks Training Magazine’s return to Europe.
