What We’re Looking for in 2017 Learning Solutions & Ecosystem Speaking Proposals


The Call for Proposals for Learning Solutions 2017 Conference & Expo and for the conference within a conference, Learning & Performance Ecosystem 2017, is open through July 15, 2016. This post shares what we’re looking for in proposals for this year’s events.

Learning Solutions focuses on sharing what works. Sessions explore practical solutions presented by those who are designing, developing, or managing learning programs in their organizations. Learning & Performance Ecosystem explores the ways that people, processes, information, and technology converge to create an environment that supports learning and performance.

We want to build the most valuable and unique program possible. We are especially interested in case studies, best practices, and practical tips and techniques that address focused, specific solutions. We will be evaluating proposals with these qualities in mind.

Submitting a proposal is easy, so take a few moments to tell us about your work! We love to see proposals that highlight:
