Open Forum: What Skills are You Improving? xAPI? Action Mapping? Career Navigating?

In today’s open forum Brent asked what skills everyone is working on, and how can TLDC help. Some hot topics were around xAPI, Action Mapping, Facing your fear, and navigating your corporate career.
TLDCommunity member Claudine Caro is working on a project that is a great fit for testing out Action Mapping in a real project. We’re all looking forward hearing how it goes in a future TLDCast.

We also looked for some input from the community on how TLDC can help build careers and connect hiring managers with the right TLDC Talent. If you have any idea on how we can you YOU, please comment here or reach out to us on TLDChat (the Slack Group).

We also shared the latest job listing on the TLDC Job Board from ASME in NYC. It’s a great opportunity with a great title: Sr. Learning Experience Designer. Stay tuned and see watch for a potential appearance from the hiring manager in a future episode of TLDCast.

Open Forum: Professional Development Resources and Tools

Today we got to see a special guest host — the man, the myth, the legend behind TLDC….LUIS MALBAS!

Luis is a founder of TLDC, a learning and development veteran, and the man behind much of the infrastructure of the community.

 Since Brent and Sam were unable to broadcast at our usual time, Luis guided a conversation about professional development.  What do folks do for professional development?  What are the preferred methods?  What are some memorable sessions?  A small but mighty group today with a robust discussion.

Golden Nugget(s)

I’ve seen L&D on the cutting edge at organizations with DEEP pockets and management that supports them.

For me, the value of those big conferences don’t come close to justifying registration cost.

I think we should create a think tank type approach and focus around collaborative problem-solving.

We need #doers as much as #thinkers…#stackOverflow example- “Here’s how *I* got this problem solved- here’s someone else’s salutation.

#FailOutLoud – potentially a great track for a conference
