The goal of the Learning & Development Community of Practice is to connect you with best-practices, tips, trends, and how-tos that help you do your best work. So if you have any questions or comments about how your community is working for you, or how we can make it work better, please don't hesitate to email me.
You look to thought leaders, writers, experts, and other practitioners to help you stay up to speed, and we work every day to bring the best events and information to you. Even beyond the recognized industry names, this community is for practitioners, and it is supported by practitioners. That is why there are several ways you can contribute to the body of knowledge and share your expertise with your peers.
Are you your organization's metrics guru?
Do you have some secret ways for delivering a course to even the toughest audience?
Have you discovered some brilliant ways to augment traditional design methods, saving both time and money?
You may or may not feel you are L&D's next superhero, but chances are, you have a great story to tell, and people want to hear it. Connect with us and share a case study, lesson learned, or practical "survival" tip. Here’s a quick list of some articles and blog posts in search of authors:
