Artificial intelligence is creating huge opportunities for workplace learning and employee development. However, it can be difficult for L&D professionals to assess what difference AI can make in their organization and where it is best implemented. Artificial Intelligence for Learning is the
practical guide L&D practitioners need to understand what AI is and how to use it to improve all aspects of learning in the workplace. It includes specific guidance on how AI can provide content curation and personalization to improve learner engagement, how it can be implemented to improve the
efficiency of evaluation, assessment and reporting and how chatbots can provide learner support to a global workforce.Artificial Intelligence for Learning debunks the myths and cuts through the hype around AI allowing L&D practitioners to feel confident in their ability to critically assess
where artificial intelligence can make a measurable difference and where it is worth investing in. There is also critical discussion of how AI is an aid to learning and development, not a replacement as well as how it can be used to boost the effectiveness of workplace learning, reduce drop off
rates in online learning and improve ROI. With real-world examples from companies who have effectively implemented AI and seen the benefits as well as case studies from organizations including Netflix, British Airways and the NHS, this book is essential reading for all L&D practitioners needing
to understand AI and what it means in practice.

In the 21st century global knowledge economy, research based universities occupy prime position, and have multiple roles to play beyond teaching, learning and supporting the academic achievements of students. Offering an international perspective, this book demonstrates how these emerging trends are
being viewed across different countries with a broad range of completely diverse socio-cultural backgrounds.
The authors explore the contribution of universities towards the advancement of global science and scholarship in countries like Turkey, Kosovo, Latin America and US. Delving into new information and processes across these countries, they investigate how the future of academic research is changing,
evolving, and ultimately contributing towards emerging trends which are significant in shaping the academic and societal roles played by universities, and in understanding the human condition. It is by engaging in this research that the authors demonstrate to readers how culture, technology and
society interact within and beyond the academic space, and are rooted in the foundation of intellectual and scientific trends.
Digital Technology is becoming ever more used by people with learning disabilities for information, entertainment and to enjoy self-expression. Despite this, there is a paucity of research into how this cohort negotiate electronic interfaces, interpret images, navigate pages and read online; what
barriers there might be, and how these could be obviated. This book explores these issues, establishing how these and other factors facilitate or inhibit information access and behaviour more generally. There are plenty of guidelines and accessibility standards regarding electronic information
presentation, but most are outdated or have been formulated without empirical evidence. Unlike prior literature this book is the result of many years's research in the field, considers specific information contexts, and develops new concepts in information behaviour. It is written in non-technical,
jargon-free language, relevant for academics, students and professionals; from human-computer interaction researchers, learning disability specialists and information scientists to formal and informal carers and supporters, college tutors, family members and others.
Traditional educational approaches are increasingly ineffective for the needs of today’s learners and society more generally. A new personalised learning solution is required which incorporates an expanded view of education incorporating human rights and capabilities, alongside the traditional
human capital educational model.
This book considers the policies, pedagogy and practice required to achieve this critical transformation. It extends traditional functional learning approaches, based on behavioural, experiential, dialogic and participatory learning, to place the learner at the centre of their learning. By defining
the principles of personalised learning and mapping out future opportunities, Ward makes a captivating argument for a new way of learning, based on improved teacher and learner agency, self-regulated learning, personalised learning and metalearning.
This book considers a broad range of educational concepts involving the learning person. By combining our learning environment, performance, capabilities and expertise with discussions of personalised learning design, technology and policy, it equips readers to reflect on how they learn currently,
and how we might all learn in the future.
