What skills will learning designers need to cope with the fast-paced changes happening now in eLearning and the wider L&D world? What are the existing and new career paths? Will the learning designers of the future also need to be able to do a video log, build sales relationships and be more consultative with the business or should they focus on a particular area? Can we develop the required new skills in our existing people or we do need to look for new talent, and if the latter, where will this new talent come from?
This last webinar of 2018 will take the form of an interactive debate, a continuation of the eLN Connect 2018 debate on the same topic and Nick and Alex will share their expertise and experience to help you decide what personal development to focus on in 2019. How do you feel about the future? Excited? Scared? Are you looking for a change, or is change targeting you? You can send your specific questions to firstname.lastname@example.org in advance of the session or use the Chat function to ask us during the live session.
