What is Next Generation Learning?
Next generation learning has been a focus of the ASAE Professional Development Section Council for several years. NGL is an approach that challenges and encourages associations to push training envelopes. To ensure timely, sustainable learning now and into the future, learning experiences must be taken to new levels. Digital tools offer dynamic opportunities to create next-generation learning.
Use of technology in association education should be based on learning goals and objectives. Too often, however, technology is selected and then the search begins for educational purposes. In quality professional development, learning intent always comes first with tools selected to help learners achieve the education goal.
Who should attend Tech 14?
Leaders in association professional development, technology and executive management are highly encouraged to attend Tech 14. The partnerships established among these three functions are crucial to successful learning via technology. What better way to build this team than to attend Tech 14?

Of course, there will be plenty of time for networking and visiting the expo.
Why attend Tech 14?
Conferences, meetings and events should be learning-filled experiences.

As in-person and virtual events blend, the hybrid world is growing rapidly. To provide your organization with continuing quality across the in-person and digital platforms, take advantage of Tech 14 to create NGL.
