Keynote Presenter: Bernd Boettger | Chief Learning Specialist - Engineering | Enterprise Learning FM Global
As we all know, more learning content is moving online, mobile, and virtual. In addition to those trends we have challenged ourselves to create 21st century classrooms that provide engaging and connected learning environments as well as leverage state-of-the-art technology. One key component of this classroom is the interactive whiteboard – in our case SMARTboard – something that many of our new employees have already experienced at universities.
Take a tour of the SimZone:
After the Keynote presentation by Bernd Boettger attendees had the opportunity to experience the SimZone, FM Global’s 12,000 sq. ft. hands-on learning facility where they could simulate a wide range of property hazards and scenarios. The SimZone is used to supplement other learning methods and is a great place to focus on skill and behavior change rather than pure knowledge transfer.
