Learning Pool Live 2013

Steve Wheeler - Learning Live's keynote

Steve Wheeler – one of Learning Pool Live’s keynotes

Learning Pool Live is this year’s must-attend learning event. Now in its fifth year, our annual get-together promises inspiration, practical advice and a lot of fun in equal measure.

We know that it’s hard to justify the time and money involved in attending conferences. We also know how valuable and energising they can be, especially when you get to network with peers tackling the same challenges as you.

That’s why we’re going on tour again this year during October.  We’ll be visiting three venues on three dates to bring the best learning ideas to you.

Why should I attend?

We’re busy putting finishing touches to the agenda and making final arrangements with our inspiring keynote speakers. I’ll be in touch soon with further details, but in the meantime, here are three great reasons to attend:

1. Learn from our Knowledge Seminar sessions
2. Hear about best practice, benchmark and network with your peers
3. Take away inspiring ideas from our customer showcase sessions


Steve Wheeler (all 3 events)

Scooping Steve, Associate Professor of Learning Technologies, as the keynote for October’s three Learning Live events has been a cause for much celebration at our offices.

His keynote is entitled ‘Learning Futures: How new and emerging technologies will impact learning and development’.

  • Testimonials

    • Simon Green, Blaenau Gwent County Borough Council

      I found Paul Matthews Key Note talk  at the recent Welsh Event both inspiring and depressing (Because I don’t work there!).

    • Bill Heasman, Devon County Council

      “The complete Learning Pool package is a fantastic deal – the DLE, courses, the Authoring Tool and the opportunity to share between authorities is unique.  The services enable us to continually deliver cost effective learning that meets the needs of the authority and we are delighted to be part of the community.”

    • Ian Leete, Cabinet Office

      I found the event very valuable for networking and inspiration.

  • Efficiency savings stories

    Read how Learning Pool customers have saved more than £36 million from the public purse by using our Dynamic Learning Environment.

    There are also 10 more stories shared by councils who have made their own efficiency savings with e-learning.
