UMBC’s ISD Now Forum will be held on Tuesday, October 28, 2014, from 6 to 8:30 p.m. in the UMBC Ballroom. Guest speaker, Connie Malamed, will discuss “The Emerging Role and Skill Set of the Learning Professional.” Malamed is an eLearning, information and visual designer, writer/publisher at the popular The eLearning Coach website, and author of Visual Language for Designers: Principles for Creating Graphics that People Understand.
The convergence of cultural and technological changes is transforming the learning landscape. This session will examine the effects that new technologies, worldwide collaboration, bring-your-own-device and social media have on how people learn and work. Participants will explore how the role of the L&D department can support these changes and get ahead of the curve rather than trailing behind.
Join us to learn about:
- How changes in culture and technology affect the learning ecosystem.
- How the current and future workforce members can learn with new approaches to technology.
- The new roles and skills that will be required by Learning and Development professionals.
The ISD Now Forum is sponsored by the UMBC Instructional Systems Design Graduate Program. The UMBC Ballroom is located on campus on the third floor of the University Center Building. The UMBC campus is located off Interstate 195 in Catonsville at 1000 Hilltop Circle. If interested in attending, please RSVP online.
