Held at London’s Olympia on 30th April, the event allows the 250 or so delegates to discuss, interact and share experiences on organisational learning, and the ever-changing technology used to support learning in the workplace.

The conference’s theme is 'building together' - examining building an understanding of contemporary learning and development. The programme comprises a variety of session types, from single speaker presentations to 'cafe' style sessions, and from hands-on practical workshops to special interest and industry.

Lasher - President of the ASTD Global Network UK, Vice Chair of the eLearning Network and the author of the ‘A list’ instructional design model - will be speaking on ‘Association-episodic instructional design’ – exploring how to build and entice the learner to create associations with e-learning to ensure better understanding through using the brain's natural powers of association.

According to Lasher: "Looking at how the brain forms associations through practical activities, the workshop will help you understand: why association works for memory; how associations differ between individuals; common associations that we share; how to build associations into your learning design, and how to avoid ' loving a no-hoper to death'."

"This event – for those who attended the Learning Technologies conference at Olympia at the end of January – allows delegates to learn from industry experts and key practitioners," said conference organiser, Don Taylor, of Infobasis.

"In Neil Lasher, we’re delighted to have a speaker of such a high calibre and international acclaim. Time and again, Neil has proved himself an enthusiastic and effective communicator – with some thought-provoking and challenging ideas in the field of instructional design."
