Washington, D.C.- More than 200 participants and exhibitors recently converged on Washington's Ronald Reagan Building for Discover the Possibilities, the e-learning Winter Showcase and Learning Symposium. Hosted by the e-Training Service Providers GoLearn Program (U.S. Office of Personnel Management), National Technical Information Service (Department of Commerce), FasTrac/Fedsource (NSA/Treasury) and the Foreign Service Institute (Department of State), the event drew a cross section of federal employees involved with learning and human resource development.
"The e-Learning Winter Showcase and Learning Symposium is about harnessing technology to advance the federal workforce," said Jeff T.H. Pon, acting project manager for OPM's e-Training Initiative. "We do this better when we foster and participate in a learning community."
Josh Bersin, a leading analyst in corporate solutions, training and e-learning, opened the event with a keynote address, "The Learning Management Systems Market: Where We Are and Opportunities for 2006." Participants then attended interactive learning sessions on topics including enterprise architecture, human resource line of business and curriculum development. The event culminated with a panel discussion on "21st Century Challenges of Learning in the Federal Government" with some of the government's top leaders participating including: Gen. Frank Anderson, president, Defense Acquisition University; Claudia Cross, chief human capital officer, Department of Energy; Dr. Pon; Chris Niedermayer, associate chief information officer, Department of Agriculture; and Dr. Robert Wisher, director, Advanced Distributed Learning Initiative, Department of Defense.
