Rapid technological advances are changing all aspects of work, and the way we communicate, connect and learn. Robotics, AI, machine learning and wider technologies continue to transform human-machine relationships, redefining ‘who does what’ at a pace and scale that has been deemed the 'fourth industrial revolution'. 

Join learning & development colleagues to explore and discuss the role of learning and lifelong learning in driving and adapting to technological change. Hear about the technical, digital and ‘human’ skills we’ll need in the future and how people are affected by the introduction of technology at work. Discuss and debate the issues and opportunities, and the strategies and tools for dealing with ongoing technological developments.

Speakers include:

  • Rohini Bhattacharya, Director of Apprenticeships, Pearson on ‘Learning for an optimistic future: The Pearson Future of Skills Research’
  • Patrick Brione, Head of Policy and Research, Involvement & Participation Association and author of ‘Mind over Machines: New Technology and Employment Relations
  • Learning for technological change - the employer perspective: speaker tbc

Topics for discussion include:

  • What learning strategies and approaches can best prepare the organisation and colleagues for technological change whilst delivering business as usual activity? 
  • How might we ‘build not buy’ skills as it gets more challenging to recruit for the skills that will be needed in the new technological future?
  • How can we best support colleagues whose roles and jobs are most affected or at risk from technological change and/or those who have barriers to learning?
  • What is the role of learning in addressing the social, psychological and health impacts of new technology?
  • What can we learn from previous experiences of technological change at work?
  • How can we best use technology to develop knowledge and skills and promote lifelong learning?
