  • How does learning evolve today, and why ?
  • What are new jobs in Learning & Education field? What knowledge and competencies do they require, what mental approach?
  • What is the path to the new training solutions? How do you choose the most appropriate training objectives and the right content to match the learners' profiles?
  • How do you build a blended learning architecture?
