Approximately 50 of the world’s leading experts on self-directed learning in business and industry, education and other sectors will lead a variety of sessions on one of the most stimulating and productive learning concepts of the century. Representatives of several high tech business areas will make presentations. Researchers and practitioners will lead discussions of self-directed learning in business, elementary through graduate education, health, leadership and other topics.
Terrence R. Redding, Ph.D., will present a research paper on the relationship between historical events and the development of High Self-Directedness in learning. It is Dr. Redding’s belief that self-directed learning, the learning that individuals engage in through their own choosing, will become increasingly important in the 21st century.
