For many, the overwhelming data about AI, automation, and mass displacement of labor can freeze any impulse to act. At the same time, organizations must prepare for the future of work—a future that is inextricably tied to the present of learning. A new kind of working learner is emerging, one that will have to continuously return to learning to keep up with a rapidly evolving workplace.

In this keynote discussion, Michelle Weise offers optimistic solutions to these challenges while highlighting barriers faced by learners in need of a new training ecosystem. Right now, education providers aren’t effectively tailoring educational experiences for the new consumers of education—lifelong learners—and that’s a significant miss. This keynote will explore ways to harness those opportunities, outlining ways to reshape training and education models to better prepare workers, and their organizations, for the future of work.
