Aurion Learning has announced that learning and development professionals from some of Scotland’s leading organisations will be among the speakers at its forthcoming Masterclass: E-Learning Made Easy, which takes place on Thursday 23 October, 2014 at The MEWS, NASWUT in Edinburgh.

Chief Executive of Scottish Bakers, Alan Clarke, Programme Manager from Scottish Prison Service, Joe Sture and Learning and Development Consultant, Andy Napier from Action for Children will discuss the E-Learning journeys within their organisations and lessons learnt along the way.

The free-to-attend, half day masterclass will help Learning and Development Managers, Learning Consultants, Trainers and Facilitators who want a better insight into what's happening in digital learning get the most out of learning and development in their organisations.

Speaking about the event, Dr. Maureen Murphy, Managing Director at Aurion Learning said: “Edinburgh is the last port of call in our extremely successful masterclass series this year and I really appreciate our client speakers taking time out of their busy schedules to speak to our registered attendees about their E-Learning experiences. Alan, Joe and Andy will collectively add an important and highly informed perspective to the masterclass.”

She added: “The feedback from attendees at our previous masterclass events in Dublin and Belfast has been extremely positive and with just over a week to go until the final masterclass event takes place, I’d encourage those interested in finding out more about E-Learning or how they can develop it further in their organisation to sign up and save their seat.”

Spaces are still available, to sign up for free and further information on the E-Learning Masterclass, visit www.aurionlearning.com/masterclass

Martin Gower will be joining the eLearning Alliance at our Learning Essentials conference on 31st October which we're holding at West Lothian College.  During his session, Martin will tell us more about the successful use of eLearning during the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.

Having started his eLearning career as an Authorware programmer in 1997, Martin progressed to an Instructional Designer, Learning Consultant and Project Manager.  During this time, Martin has worked in Learning Technology as a supplier and a customer, within organisations such as Department of Health, VEGA Group, Cable&Wireless, Howden, Atos & eCom Scotland, and now with DirectLine.

But when you speak to Martin, he will tell you that managing the eLearning project for Glasgow 2014 is one of the highlights of his career, and it's some of the experiences from this project which Martin will share with us at Learning Essentials.

When Glasgow 2014 commissioned the ‘Games Exchange’ it had 2 main objectives in eLearning :
1. To deliver volunteer and contractor eLearning and Health & Safety eLearning
2. To relay information in a systematic, structured format to a diverse target audience

During Martins session, you will learn how the Glasgow 2014 eLearning solution was successfully implemented, gaining an understanding of how a Games based Organised Committee works and fits in with other organisations.  In addition, you will learn how the project included not only rolling out a Learning Management System (LMS), but also how the challenge of adding 15,000 volunteers, 1,000 paid staff and up to 30,000 contractors onto the eLearning platform was achieved via self-registration – all within tight resources and a defined budget.

Learning Essentials 2014 takes place at West Lothian College on 31st October.  The cost for Alliance Members to attend the days event is only £99.

Long term Alliance Member, Norman Lamont will be joining us at Learning Essentials Conference on 31st October which we're holding at West Lothian College.  During his session, Norman will discuss how we go about designing eLearning, and more specifically how Action Mapping can help us look at this process differently.

During Learning Essentials Norman will share ideas about instructional design, and more specifically Action Mapping, which Norman describes as a quick-moving and visual way to start a learning project.

Norman has worked closely with Action Mapping's inventor, Cathy Moore and used the method extensively at Lloyds Banking Group.

Prior to working with Lloyds Banking Group, Norman has had spells with Britannia Building Society, Scottish Widows, Lloyds TSB, and in this time he has come across all types of e-learning.  It is Normans belief, that Action Mapping can change the way we design and develop our elearning solutions. 

Action Mapping is a guided conversation with sponsors, subject experts and recent learners which will steer you towards relevant, engaging and active learning experiences, with measurable outcomes for the organisation, and away from information dumps and endless page-turners.

During Learning Essentials Norman will talk us through his experience of Action Mapping and show us the method at work.

Simon Williams will be joining the eLearning Alliance at our Learning Essentials event on 31st October which we're holding at West Lothian College.  Simon will use his time with us to describe how we can make a business case for investing in eLearning.

We all know that the first activities which organisations tend to reduce when money is tight are training and development.  Now, more than ever, learning providers need to show the services they provide add value and a positive impact to our organisations – that there is a return for the investment made.

As a long time Member (and past Chairman) of the eLearning Alliance, many of you will know Simon well, and during his session at Learning Essentials, he will share with us some of his experiences and knowledge of Return on Investment, specifically within the training environment and how to show the impact, and the return on investment, to decision makers.

This session is an opportunity for suppliers and users of eLearning to discuss what impact organisations are looking for from eLearning services and products – and how to show the impact (the return on investment) to the decision makers and the holders of the purse strings.

Ian Watson will be joining the eLearning Alliance at our Learning Essentials Conference on 31st October which we're holding at West Lothian College.  During his session, Ian will look at the increasing role social media is playing in learning, and how it is being used to share knowledge and build networks.

Ian is Knowledge Media Programme Manager with the  Institute for Research and Innovation in Social Services, and has a background in the legal and technical aspects of sharing knowledge and information.  Ians current interests include the use of social media to support and enhance learning, and it's this topic which he will explore with us at Learning Essentials.

Continuous learning is less about courses and more about people sharing knowledge, experience, ideas and resources as part of the daily workflow.  Ian will discuss this aspect of learning, and how social media can play an important role in enabling us to find, share and build on existing knowledge.

Ians session will look at the emerging role of personal learning networks and environments, drawing on the work of Jane Hart, Jay Cross and Harold Jarche, and look at how we can build networks using, for example, Twitter or LinkedIn which allow us to tap into the experience of seasoned experts who are more than willing to share.  These networks will not replace formal courses but they can make them more effective.

The eLearning Alliance is pleased to announce that John Connell will be giving a keynote speech at this years Learning Essentials event on 31st October.

In John Connell, we have an educationist with wide experience across all education sectors, and founder of the ‘I Am Learner’ international education consultancy. He counts UNESCO, European Schoolnet, Promethean, the Maitri Trust, Skills Development Scotland and Pearson amongst his recent clients.

Many of you may know John from when he led the design, procurement and initial implementation of the Scottish Schools Digital Network project, now known as Glow.  Following this project, John was an education business strategist for Cisco, working across Emerging Markets, including Africa, Latin America, Middle East, Eastern Europe and Russia.  He's advised governments, universities, NGOs and other bodies on the potential of networked learning in education.

At Learning Essentials, John will speak about the conjunction of education and technology, sharing his views on how new technologies are impacting our learning environment, and how the reality of the learning revolution is that it is happening slowly, piecemeal, sometimes imperceptibly, around us, but its ultimate repercussions are likely to be deeper, broader and more thoroughgoing than even many of the enthusiasts are anticipating.

John will share how the critical factor in this slow but deep revolution is the fact that technology is changing education from the inside out. While the tools and platforms and systems being externally imposed on schools, colleges, universities and workplaces all play their parts in the 'revolution', the most profound effects are really arising out of the changes that digital and networking technologies have wrought in the way that people can now learn, in the re-shaping of traditional relationships between teacher and learner, and in the shifting of the locus of control over learning from the institution and the teacher to the learner.

John will use his experience of education across the world to provoke some thinking on the nature of this gradual and global revolution in learning.
