Giunti Labs host state-of-the-art learning technologies workshop
Training in Action 2007 invitational workshop: Innovating Corporate
Education and Industry Training for the Global Challenges of the
Europe's leading e- and mobile learning content management solutions
provider, Giunti Labs, is hosting a workshop in collaboration with the
Aviation Industry Computer Based Training Committee (AICC), Advanced
Distributed Learning (ADL), the IMS Global Learning Consortium, the
Open Knowledge Initiative (OKI) of MIT Boston, and the European
Learning Industry Group (Elig). The workshop, called 'Training in
Action' is being held at the MediaTerraneo Conference Centre, at Sestri
Levante, near Genoa, on the northwest Italian Riviera, on 7th and 8th
Participation in the workshop is free but by invitation only to
Europe's key players in this field and to those who have a genuine
interest in the application of technology to human capital development
and technical training in order to meet business objectives.
The workshop will mix 'state of the present' presentations from leading
corporate and multinational organisations and 'scenes from the future'
scenarios presented by leading EU R&D projects in the fields of mobile
learning, wearable training and performance support. This will be
followed by a set of ten thematic 'roundtables' on the 'top ten' topics
for innovative learning.
Giunti Labs' International Marketing Manager, Minna Leikas commented:
"The workshop will outline trends and present case studies from large
industrial and commercial organisations which are deploying innovative
corporate education and industrial training solutions worldwide to cope
with their rapid up-skilling, just-in-time training, talent management
and performance support needs in day-to-day field operations and
actions. We expect these presentations to foster discussion on new
learning technologies and how they can be used to achieve effective
training and learner support."
"New economies engender new challenges. New challenges generate new
training needs," explained Fabrizio Cardinali, Giunti Labs' CEO.
"Industry workforces today need new learning paradigms, technologies
and standards to help them develop their skills and competencies more
effectively and efficiently and support their jobs at the pace made
necessary by today's global challenges.
"Accelerating the adoption of innovative training methodologies,
technologies and standards is becoming a 'must' for those international
organisations needing to compete and survive in today's knowledge
society, while tackling the market forces that are underpinning today's
global economies," he added. "Technologies such as e-learning, mobile
learning, wearable training, role play simulations and performance
support systems can improve such action."
Participation is by invitation only, based on seat availability and
allocated on a 'first come, first served' basis. If you are interested
