Event Details

eLearnz eLab 2018 

Trends move so quickly in this digital age.  L&D Professionals must keep up-to-date and informed with the latest technology, trends and techniques or risk being left behind.  eLab's hands-on workshops allow you to get out of the office and take time to play with new tech and learn low cost and free tools to help create engaging elearning.  eLab has been a runaway success over the last two years and we are looking forward to hosting it again this year.

The format 

eLearnz eLab is 2 days of 6 hands-on mini workshops, with the focus on the latest in digital learning trends, technology and design.  You will work with thought leaders during these sessions where you will actively create digital learning.  You will go away with up-to-date training methods that you can put into practice immediately back at your organisation and pass along to your team.
