The year of the creative
The year 2015 is the year of the creative, LERN President William A. Draves will say in his annual “State of Lifelong Learning” for 2015 in the opening session of the big LERN conference in Orlando, Nov. 21-23.
It is the lead point for how you can enhance the success of your program in 2015 over 2014.
Here’s more: From our visits, talks, and data from lifelong learning professionals all over Canada and the United States, it is clear that creative administrators and professionals are finding new opportunities for furthering their success. We find creative professionals finding those opportunities in programming, marketing and operations management.
With the economy coming back, the distinctive quality of creativity is not in response to tough economic times. Instead, it is a response to our changing economic times. With traditional formats and audiences in decline, one distinctive difference among lifelong learning professionals is creativity in thinking combined with the gumption to try those creative ideas. With the old world in decline and the new world as yet unconquered, the year 2015 is definitely the year of the creative professional.
The “State of Lifelong Learning for 2015” has 10 major observations about the state of our field today. You’ll get it when you and 800 others attend the conference.
