Our agenda is full – starting with a kickoff evening on THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, which includes an introduction to Innovations in Training, a creativity mini-workshop, The Nature of Wine and Learning experiential tasting, an Innovation Chat with a neuroscientist, and a reception and dinner with immersive tech demos.

“I learned a variety of innovative ways to ensure experiential learning.”

– Andrea Gunther, Visa

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, starts with an exploration of collaborative design with the head of the Small Center for Collaborative Design at Tulane's School of Architecture (which hosts us this morning), followed by an Innovation Chat with KPMG about their new center for learning and innovation. Then, we will dive into our Immersive TechLearn Lab to discover what we need to know about getting started with VR, AR and other immersive tech, followed by hands-on demos with Verizon, Revinax, KPMG, and others.

After lunch, we will completely shift gears to experience some non-tech innovations around leadership when we visit the New Orleans Police Department's Mounted Patrol training grounds, followed by an interactive workshop on "physical listening" with a choreographer whose dance company, The Equus Projects, includes equine and human performers.

We move on to the multidisciplinary Ochsner Clinical Simulation and Patient Safety Center, where we will engage with high-fidelity human patient simulators that teach clinical tasks, and then explore lessons for how simulations can enhance our learning programs.

We conclude the day with a culinary kick in the seat of the pants at the nation's first Center for Culinary Medicine at Tulane University, where we will debrief the day, learn how this center is training medical students to better understand food and nutrition, and participate in a hands-on, team-oriented cooking class in which we will actively prepare our dinner.

“Innovations in Training is unlike anything I’ve seen offered at a conference before. It was great to see real innovations already implemented at organizations – and gain ideas and insights to bring back to my team.”

– Lisa O'Donnell, Director of Instructional Design, KPMG

Urban South Brewery hosts our closing day on SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 21. In our closing Applied Innovation Workshop, we will focus our attention on integrating the many sites, technologies and approaches experienced in the previous two days. This workshop will introduce the role of personas in gamification and human-centered design – with a great case study from KPMG – followed by an applied design thinking process to prototype how to bring our new learnings back to our organizations.

We wrap-up IIT with the founder and in-house cicerone (like a beer sommelier) of Urban South Brewery for an Innovation Chat about how to transfer expert and sensory knowledge! We will earn what make sensory training different, taste some beer, get a VIP tour of the brewery – and enjoy a pop-up lunch (and beer) while we share a final reflection.

See full descriptions of each of the experiences above in the IIT Agenda and then make sure to reserve your spot today!
