Where is the industry going and how do we progress?

Roundtable discussion

Bob Elmore, Moderator

Digital learning has been with us now for more than 60 years.  Originally the field was dominated by computer scientists, engineers, and psychologists.  More recently it has become a mainstream part of learning and development.  How did we get here, and where is the industry going?

This meeting will be a roundtable, where we will discuss the state of the industry and how we should progress from here.  Come prepared to ask questions and join the discussion.
