’ve been going to events about learning for a long time now (no I am not going to tell you how many years), so it’s always refreshing to hear new ideas and think about different ways to tackle some of the challenges facing L&D. And that’s the goal of the ‘new wave of learning’ panel session that Ed Monk and I are chairing at next week’s Learning Live.
We’ll be joined by four learning professionals, each with their own unique take on L&D and their own areas of specialism – but all blazing a trail in their respective careers: Dr. Hannah Gore, Gemma Critchley, Adam Harwood and Matt Ash.
Why am I telling you all this? Well, because this is your chance to grill them! I’m crowdsourcing questions in advance and will ask them during the session, then tweet out the responses (and probably write up a corresponding piece after the event).
LPI data tells us that two of the biggest challenges currently facing L&D is how to tackle the digital transformation of learning and how to measure the impact of learning on performance. There’s no silver bullet (sadly) but we’ll be exploring how the panellists are approaching these challenges from, perhaps, a different angle. Is it about the latest tools and technology? Is there a different mindset L&D needs to adopt today? From MOOCs, to social media for learning, to creating a digital ecosystem, to working in an Agile way – please ping me your questions for the guys either below or via @kategraham23 and I promise we’ll ask and answer them all.
