Welcome to the first phase of the L&D Conference 2020 effort focused on Professionalization in the L&D field!
Our conference brings together practitioners from around the world in an unprecedented six-week learning event.
Here, in this CrowdThinking effort (a deeper, more personal form of crowdsourcing), we invite all L&D Professionals to share their thoughts on the strengths, weaknesses, and future aspirations on seven vital areas that affect our work and professionalism.
Our collective wisdom will better allow us to create a comprehensive map of our future landscape and opportunities for growth.
Everyone is invited to participate, whether you attend the conference or not.
Indeed, we want to cast as wide a net as possible in this first phase, so please share the link to these questions with your coworkers and colleagues in the L&D field.
The survey consists of a total of about 35 (multiple-choice and comment) questions divided into seven areas of interest. MOST of the questions are marked as optional, so that you can focus only on areas of interest for you--if you choose. What is most important is to provide more detail in areas in which you feel strongly.
For too long, our professionalization as L&D professionals has been a fragmented effort. Now you have an opportunity to provide input to guide the professionalization of our industry into the future!!
At the end of this set of questions, we will give you an opportunity to sign up to receive the report or reports that come out of the findings.
