The Download is a unique way for learning and development professionals to connect, learn and share.
If you want to catch a smattering of what’s going on in learning, pick up some new ideas to put a new spark in your work, or share your latest ideas & thoughts, this is the place to be. On its face, the Download looks like a conference: learning professionals gather for a day, choose interesting topics, drink a lot of coffee and exchange ideas and business cards.
The Download is different.
Each session is much more like a discussion than a presentation. Q&A goes in all directions at the Download because everyone has something to share. There’s a relaxed community vibe about the Download as we welcome you into our professional home in a spirit of sharing. TorranceLearning has hosted more than a dozen Downloads since 2010. Here’s a blog post about the Download experience.
Here’s how it works.
We run several really short, concurrent discussions on a wide range of topics, all related to learning and development. You choose what you want to see, wander about as you wish. While the person facilitating a session certainly has something to share, the Q&A goes in all directions. Many of the sessions don’t even use PowerPoint or demos (crazy!).
