Towards A Learning Society: Leadership and Innovation

Learning society is an educational philosophy advocated by the OECD and UNESCO that positions education as the key to a nation’s economic development, and holds that education should extend beyond formal learning into informal learning centres to support a knowledge economy.

While it’s accepted that learning is now a lifelong pursuit, what’s shocking is how fast and how much individuals are expected to learn as part of the job. For the workforce of the future, learning is the new working.

Given learning is crucial to competitiveness, learning leaders now play a strategic role. Their responsibility goes beyond operational learning, to collaborating with other functions to achieve strategic outcomes.

Progressive organizations are building their own universities and academies to fulfil internal business needs. Many even extend it to customers. The move is partly to enhance customer experience, yet it’s also a mechanism to build trust and connection with customers. The modern Learning society and communities hence include not just staff, but also partners and customers. This hands the progressive organization possibly the ultimate advantage in innovation – having customers creating new products for themselves.

As the market and social conditions become more complex, so too are the individuals and teams needed to solve them. Institutions, corporate and government can work together to prepare and support individuals for lifelong learning. Learning communities are popping up within and across organizations to sense make and collaborate to solve emerging challenges.

This conference aims to bring together learning and development professionals in Asia across the public, private and education sectors to share case studies and trends towards the use of skilful leadership, data and technology across an individual’s lifelong journey to skill up, reskill and upskill in both the public and corporate spheres.

“Normally in these types of conferences, its really a echo chamber where everyone’s got the same views. But just talking to the people at my table and hearing the speakers, everyone has ideas and diversity in their perspectives” 


Ben Price, Technical Project Lead, Department of Education, Australia
