Questions for live audience

Did you attend conferences regularly (2 or more a year)? And if so, will not being able to attend an event have an adverse effect on your professional development?

Do you currently have a need to upskill or reskill because of the pandemic?

Is your opinion of conferences going to change moving forward? For example, are they a critical enough part of your professional development that you will immediately return to attending as soon as possible?

What will be required to make you feel comfortable returning to attending live events?

Are you registered for or looking to register for any upcoming live online events?

If you’re registered for an online event, what is it?

Do you have any sense of how your organization is going to make decisions about your professional development going forward?

Friday, January 31 | Community Discussion: Your “Go-to” L&D Resources

There was a time when “googling” something was a useful use of time. Nowadays, not only do you have to understand how to filter the “wheat from the chaff”, you also have to be aware of your focus, or lack thereof.

So when you have a question and are looking for answers in L&D, where do you turn? Websites, message boards, communities, people…let’s discuss our options and help each other with resource recommendations to find the solutions we’re looking for.
