Learning • Technology • Design™ (LTD)

designed specifically for those who work in the business of lifelong learning, continuing education, and professional development

Moving the Needle

The goal of LTD is to help you find new and better ways to engage learners and create the lasting impact that will move the needle in the profession, industry, or field you serve. Educational sessions will cover topics key to your success—like effective marketing, designing for learner engagement, and learning business strategy.

Defining a Learning Business

A learning business exists to generate revenue through selling learning and education experiences to a target audience. Trade and professional associations, training companies, continuing education programs at colleges and universities, and solo eduprenuers are all learning businesses.

For Leaders and Aspiring Leaders

The content is geared to leaders and aspiring leaders—individuals at an intermediate to advanced level of knowledge when it comes to leading and working in a market-facing learning business. Lifelong learning is the imperative of our age, and if you lead learning in your field, you will lead your field.

Just for You

LTD was born of the recognition that learning businesses face challenges and opportunities that differ from their corporate and academic counterparts. LTD sessions will address the five domains that underpin successful learning businesses: strategy, leadership, marketing, portfolio, and capacity.

Only a week after the conference, I am already implementing new design, delivery, pricing, and marketing tactics, all a direct result of attending LTD. It was hugely beneficial.

LTD was well-designed and well-delivered. Tagoras did a great job of not only creating a learning community, but also of leveraging the knowledge and experience of the community members throughout the duration of the online conference.

We tend to assume that "if we build it, they will come" when, in fact, we have to be purposeful in the process of designing, developing, marketing, offering, and following up to the learning event/process. LTD reemphasized that and provided opportunities to explore and discuss.
