Want to Learn More at Conferences? How Oracle OpenWorld Is Changing the Game

By: Lauren Mckay | Social Media Manager


We are excited to announce that the Oracle OpenWorld Session Catalog is live! We are adding new sessions on a consistent basis, so keep checking back to find your favorite sessions and speakers.

That's not all! We're also introducing the next iteration of Collective Learning—a new series of session formats focused on learning, retention, and exchange of information.

These sessions are designed to help you get the most out of your Oracle OpenWorld experience and overcome the obstacles that hold you back from learning. We've taken into account cutting edge academic research to bring you these new formats, knowing that everyone learns differently, and that information overload has presented new challenges related to knowledge retention.

Our hope is that these inventive session formats will help you leap to new ideas and take in knowledge faster. Moreover, we want you to empower you to take what you learn back to your team and make those around you experts as well.

Take a look at the session types for 2017. Whether you prefer games or lively conversation, at Oracle OpenWorld you will have an opportunity to learn in ways no other conference can provide.
