The inaugural Future of Learning by National Library Board was held online on 7, 8 and 14 August 2021. This year’s event features talks and workshops by 14 thought leaders and expert from around the world.
NLB’s Future of Learning event for 2021 is based on the theme ‘Staying Creative when Life Feels Monotonous’.
The webinars are divided into four sub-themes, each comprising two talks and an accompanying workshop. Topics will cover the future economy, and the art and science of using unorthodox ways to maximise potential and performance.
These sub-themes are:
1. Learning to Learn – how the universal skills of learning based on science that can help
us to learn better.
2. Connection in Disconnection – online communities as a source of support and
how to replicate the spark of in-person community learning online.
3. Serious Fun – This advocates the power of play and imagination to generate new
ideas and creative solutions.
4. Arts/Lifestyle – How interacting with nature and engaging in a creative outlet can
help individuals manage stress and anxiety, and inspire them to think outside the box.
