Learning and development at work is undergoing a complete transformation. A great amount of workplace learning today is delivered online - both formally through courses and informally through search and social media. The L&D function itself is becoming more embedded in the business as L&D shifts to target performance - and not simply course satisfaction - as its primary goal.
But what what does this mean for the role of the L&D professional? What new skills and competencies are needed? To open OEB 2018’s Learning Technologies track, leading thinkers and practitioners including Sabine Schulze from Deutsche Bahn and Nick van Dam from McKinsey will consider these major questions facing workplace learning and development today to identify how the role of the L&D professional is changing.
Donald H Taylor asks: “Where can we deliver most value? What role do digital tools play? What design techniques should we be using? And we will also consider things at a strategic level, asking what shape the profession is likely to take over the coming years, and how we can prepare for a new world of L&D with a broader, more strategic role than ever.”
‘Learning at Work: How It Is Changing and the New Role of the L&D Professional’ takes place at OEB on Thursday 6 December at 11:45 and forms part of the Learning Technologies track.
OEB 2018 takes place in Berlin from 5-7 December. For the first time, Learning Technologies Germany will be fully integrated into the event, ensuring a major focus on employment, skills and workplace learning.
