The field of learning and talent development is changing daily – Are you keeping up? How do you chart the best course to continue to grow in the field? Did you know that over 400 million jobs will be gone by 2030? Although we continue to learn from on-the-job experience, when does it make sense to look at a degree program or industry standard certification program, such as Certified Professional in Learning and Performance (CPLP ®)? Even after you earn a degree, how do you effectively keep your knowledge and skills up-to-date, given that digital skills need to be updated every three years?
There are so many different ways to learn. How do you chart a learning path that best suits your goals and life style? Facilitators Kathryn Cody and Janie Honeycutt will present the current state of the field and how they have addressed alternative ways to learn. They’ll present learning alternatives and provide a worksheet to help you create your own path. We’ll work on these as a group during the session, then provide resources for further exploration.
At the end of this session, you will have tangible choices and next steps to chart your next adventure in learning. In education and training, with the advancement of learner expectations and technology, if you’re not growing, you’re falling behind.
On Completion of this Session, You Will:
- Identify the current state of the field as well projections for learner expectations by the AMA, ATD National and Forbes.
- Explore different types of learning programs for professionals (degree programs, certifications, MOOCs, and more).
- Consider the pros and cons of alternatives.
- Receive resources to help you choose appropriate learning choices.
Who Should Attend:
Anyone involved in learning and development wondering how best to meet the challenges of the profession. This includes students and those transitioning between jobs or considering education as a way to enhance their job prospects, educators, internal and external consultants, designers, facilitators, administrators, managers, directors, and HRD personnel.
Come prepared to engage in conversation with your colleagues!
