Elliott Masie Hosts 38 Leaders at Learning Innovations LAB

Saratoga Springs, NY (USA), March 2019 - Elliott Masie, an international learning analyst and curator, hosted 38 corporate leaders from around the world at his Learning Innovations LAB last week. As business and work changes, the format and style of workplace learning must innovate to leverage new technologies and methodologies to upskill employees.

Masie spent 2.5 days with learning leaders from organizations as varied as Marriott International, FM Global, Textron, UNICEF, PricewaterhouseCoopers, 3M, Oracle, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Hanesbrands, Morgan Stanley, and others as they explored the latest innovations in the learning and tech field. They examined the hope and also the hype of AI, robotics, personalized learning, machine learning, chatbots, and more. Several CLOs and industry analysts interacted with the group via live video interviews throughout the LAB.

Elliott Masie, who is credited with helping to launch the world of eLearning as well as leading learning conferences and the Learning CONSORTIUM over the past 28 years, is focusing his efforts on real-time LABs that safely and bravely enable learning leaders to experiment with emerging learning innovations. His next LABs at his state-of-the-art Learning Center in Saratoga Springs, NY include the following events:
