The changing skill set of the learning professional [WEBINAR]

The changing skill set of the learning professional [WEBINAR]


February 8, 2018 from 10am to 11am



Skills define us. They are what make us useful and productive. As a learning professional, our skills need to be constantly updated as we respond to a changing world around us.

Perhaps more than ever before, we need new skills to respond to the developing expectations of both employees and our key stakeholders, and to take advantage of the fantastic opportunities afforded by technology.

In this webinar, Barry and Lars will explain:

  • why skills matter to the learning professional
  • how the demands on the learning professional are shifting
  • the L&D skills that will be most needed in the next ten years
  • why skills must be underpinned with an up-to-date knowledge of evidence-based principles of learning and teaching
  • the new and exciting ways that skills and knowledge can be developed online
