Chief Learning Officer focuses on keeping corporate education relevant and effective in the digital age

CLO Symposium 2018
Enterprise learning organizations also are facing tremendous shifts in what employees expect and demand from the training experience itself.

Human Capital Media (HCM), publisher of Chief Learning Officer magazine, released final program details today for CLO Symposium 2018, a much-anticipated conference on the forces driving corporate educators to adapt, innovate and get creative to keep up with the evolving ways the worldwide workforce needs and expects to learn. Hundreds of senior learning and development professionals, corporate executives and human capital management leaders will convene March 26-28 at the Marriott Harbor Beach Resort & Spa in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, to explore Reimagining the Learning Experience.

"Technology, globalization, the multigenerational workplace - forces like these have all fundamentally changed the types of skills employers need to teach and the mechanics of how training is delivered," said Mike Prokopeak, HCM editor in chief. "But that's just the tip of the iceberg. Enterprise learning organizations also are facing tremendous shifts in what employees expect and demand from the training experience itself. This Symposium not only acknowledges this new reality but also seeks to provide a forum where visionary industry leaders and practitioners can work together on solutions for staying relevant and effective."

The magazine's editors have developed a high-level agenda for the conference. Highlighted by an eclectic line-up of keynote speakers on timely topics ranging from the future of learning in an age of artificial intelligence to using improv techniques to improve performance, educational sessions include a panel discussion on UX (user experience) trends, powerful case studies from L&D practitioners, more than 20 workshops, and "Voice of the CLO" interviews with learning pioneers from JP Morgan Chase and Cleveland Clinic. Industry professionals attending the Symposium can earn recertification credit hours toward PHR, SPHR and GPHR recertification through the HR Certification Institute and professional development credits for the SHRM-CPSM or SHRM-SCPSM.

The spring CLO Symposium also features the annual unveiling of the LearningElite, the magazine's prestigious benchmarking program that singles out exceptional L&D practices. A special LearningElite Gala caps off the first day of the conference on March 26. Diamond Sponsors for CLO Symposium 2018 are DeVry WORKS and Southern New Hampshire University.
