Why is Virtual Reality Still Broken? How to Leverage Immersive Technology and Serious Games for Training
In this session we will explore the current research literature on virtual reality, which indicates that it is a weak method for teaching and learning. We will probe this research and our own ongoing projects at Humber College and UOIT to determine how to improve the value of VR for training.

The business world is full of decisions that would be so much easier with a crystal ball to help predict the future: Which applicant should we hire or promote? Of this quarter's new sales recruits, which ones are most likely to succeed as team leaders? Will learners engage with this simulation, or should we develop a serious learning game instead? Will sending this manager to an MBA program pay off? Using predictive analytics in e-learning — as well as in hiring and promotion decisions — can help with these choices.
Compliance training can feel like a moving target. Evolving regulatory environments mean that compliance continues to grow in importance — which means an increasing role for effective compliance training. Designing a successful compliance training program is more important now than it ever has been.

At the 2017 Deloitte Chief Learning Officer forum, management consultant John Hagel said scalable learning is the new reason for large organizations to exist. It's a big statement and it has profound implications for the role of corporate learning in the 21st century. Learning will no longer be an auxiliary function in corporations; rather, it will be the primary reason for large organizations to exist.
Change is roaring across the learning industry like a tornado through the heartland. Digital natives and advanced technologies are fueling a new learning landscape, leaving many of us wondering what is necessary and what is nice to have.
One major change is a shift from formal to informal learning. Mobile devices, learning record stores, communities of practice, LinkedIn, instant messaging, YouTube and other tools facilitate on-the-job learning.

Senior L&D executives are hearing a lot of industry chatter about microlearning. There are many sound reasons to embrace microlearning in online training — whether it's a two-minute explainer video, a 10-minute branching scenario, or a 20-minute e-learning course. Indeed, short learning objects are faster to create, easier to maintain, more transferable from one hosting platform to another, and, perhaps most importantly, don't take employees away from their work for longer than it takes to go for a walk. Yet not all microlearning is memorable.
Chief Learning Officer
Personalized learning, workflow learning, the Five Moments of Need, 70-20-10, informal learning — call it what you want, but moving learning away from events and into everyday work is one of the hottest topics in our industry right now. I speak with at least three to five learning leaders a week who are struggling with making the "transformation" (another hot topic) from a training department/university model to a performance-centric/workflow-oriented design shop.
