Conference Archive

Learning Solutions Conference & Expo 2016 - March 18, 2016

Customer Success Manager

Many L&D professionals look inward toward their own field for professional development. While this approach certainly has its merits, it also has its downsides, such as: the likelihood of groupthink, reduced exposure to other disciplines, and minimized opportunities for thinking and acting differently. None of the downsides are sound ingredients for ensuring that you, as a professional, are as well-informed as you should be.

In this session, you will gain insights into looking outside of the L&D industry for inspiration; the latest thinking on a range of subjects, including content marketing, user experience design, mobile, social learning, and neuroscience; early exposure to trends; and differing perspectives. You will learn to look outward from your own industry and improve your professional practice as a result. This session will reassure you that breaking out of your bubble is the right thing to do.

In this session, you will learn:

  • What the advantages are of breaking out of the L&D bubble
  • Where to start looking for external opportunities
  • How to maintain focus and momentum for a subject that may not be your day job
  • Some of the key takeaways gained from professional experiences

Audience:
Novice and intermediate designers, developers, project managers, managers, and directors.

Technology discussed in this session:
MOOCs, and mobile (general).
