The conference officially opens with a welcome address from Desire2Learn President & CEO, John Baker, on Monday, July 15.
Not to worry. The conference registration desk will be open during all conference activities for late check-in.
The conference ends immediately following the closing address on Wednesday, July 17 around 4:00 p.m. We then move into the Post Conference on Thursday, July 18 and Friday, July 19.
There is tremendous value in bringing together our clients as it provides a multitude of opportunities for everyone to elevate knowledge and expertise, and educate each other. In order to fit all this in a way that enables all of us to learn together effectively, the conference expands over three days. The conference provides informative keynote presentations, 160+ targeted breakout sessions, hands-on workshops, a poster session and social events. It is full of ideas, learning, networking, and, as you will see, time very well spent.
Technology continues to be an engine of change within education and industry, fueled by a host of new teaching and training models, free access to content, smarter analytics and other advances that contribute to the concept of Learning 3.0. With a robust agenda of the most heated topics in IT and elearning, insightful industry keynotes, and the opportunity to network with more than 1000 peers, FUSION promises to be the most illuminating gathering on learning technology this year. Beyond vision and trends, FUSION also offers hands-on sessions, best practice discussions and workshops – helping you to understand the future and implement the specific opportunities to move things forward today.
