Laura Sukorokoff, Chair of I4PL's Vancouver and Mainland BC Chapter
There is so much cool stuff going on out there. Every time we turn around, there’s some new gadget or way of thinking we could use in our work. But when it comes time to revise how or what we teach, we often struggle with the same thing our trainees struggle with — we don’t apply what we’ve learned.
If we refer to Bloom’s Taxonomy, we see that application refers to the ability to use what we’ve learned in new and concrete situations. This requires us not just to know and understand what we’ve learned, but to use it.
And that’s where things get tough. It’s tough because people don’t do what they know, they do what they’ve always done. L and D professionals included. That creates a problem. Our clients and trainees are looking to us to not just present information, but to be Learning Leaders.
At this year’s 2018 Annual General Meeting, held at the National Conference, The Institute for Performance and Learning will be voting in three new members on the Board. The three vacant positions on the Board of Directors are:

Classroom environments that use digital tools and active learning get a lot of attention these days. But discussion tends to lack nuance. An educator might implement a new pedagogy and measure learning outcomes, grades, engagement or some other "across-the-board" metric. But how does video-based active learning work for students from different socioeconomic backgrounds?
Today's learning and development professional bears little resemblance to the trainer from even 10 years ago. For in-house L&D pros, the days of spending hours researching, creating booklets, handouts and end-of-the course tests are over. Waiting for training sessions to come to town, hoping to get managers enrolled before the course was filled, then dutifully placing each "Certificate of Completion" in personnel files (hoping that would prevent liability) are things of the past.

As e-learning relies more heavily on data and adopts AI-based technologies, understanding how to process, analyze, and apply data is essential. Several of the skills that data scientists use every day would nicely round out an e-learning developer's toolbox. L&D teams should include at least one member with basic data skills to enhance e-learning development and impact.
Much has been written about new technology for training, shortened attention spans and participatory formats. All of these topics are important considerations for the skills of training leaders, the trainees and how they work together across diverse demographics and personal and learning styles. However, we need a deeper dive into how generational influences impact learning styles and motivations.
