The Institute for Performance and Learning in conjunction with Steve Blane, an award-winning training consultant and instructional designer, is pleased to announce the launch of the Certificates in Performance and Learning Competencies. Steve has designed these courses to cover the seven performance and learning competency areas that have been identified by I4PL as the essential knowledge and skill areas for a professional in performance and learning. Steve previously worked as a facilitator for the Master Certificate in Adult Training and Development at the Schulich School of Business and now we are able to offer the I4PL Certificate courses consisting of four three-day intensive courses in Toronto and Ottawa, beginning in September 2019. Each of these four intensive courses will cover one or more competency areas and passing an individual course will earn the learner a Certificate in that competency area or areas. Passing all four courses earns the learner the Master Certificate of Performance and Learning Competencies (MCPLC). Many graduates of the MCPLC will choose to apply to the CTDP certification program after completing the courses. MCPLC graduates are given a credit of one year toward the work experience requirement of the CTDP certification program. For more information, visit the I4PL website.

| || 2019 Conference — Speaker Spotlight|
I4PL is pleased to announce that Melissa Quinn will be presenting at this year’s Conference!
Track: Managing Change for Results
Session Title: Leading Innovation: Mindsets for Architecting the Future
Session Description: With the pace of change accelerating and disruption happening across every industry, today's leaders face a predicament. Not only must they continue to manage the business of today, driving increasing efficiency,
productivity and profitability. They must also be responsive to the changing environment and become architects of
the future of their organizations.
But the traditional business mindsets and behaviours that have made many leaders successful to date are actually
preventing them from succeeding in the face of change and disruption.
In this session, innovation thought leader and former Doblin by Deloitte COO, Melissa Quinn, explores the mindsets
that people must embrace in order to lead innovation, and teaches practical skills everyone can leverage to adopt
National webinars are always free for members and $50 +tax for non-members.
These events count towards 1 credit
hour each for certification maintenance.
Please note that there are two steps in the registration process. First, you are required to register on the I4PL website and then the second step is to register on the ZOOM platform. The second step will be sent to you 48 hours before the webinar that will then send a confirmation email with the dial-in instructions. For questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org

Games, virtual reality, and other immersive formats are fundamentally different approaches to learning and performance, compared to what we often refer to as "e-learning." All use technology to support learning. However, the development tools, processes and skill sets needed to create the immersive forms are not the same as those used by most instructional designers and developers, and they are not necessarily easy to master through reading and self-study.
Employers have long seen the need for training employees in hard skills. In recent years, soft skills like leadership and communication have crept into learning and development initiatives, too. Some employers have looked to L&D to increase employees' emotional intelligence or emotional quotient — a trend that can give staff members a better sense of how they can work effectively with others while meeting their own needs.

Organizations increasingly finding that they need to upskill, reskill and new skill their employees to keep pace with evolving demands and remain competitive. That's why so many organizations are embracing the concept of "learning culture." Learning cultures allow organizations to proactively address the knowledge needs of their employees on an ongoing basis – what the learning and development industry calls "continual learning."

360-degree videos, also known as immersive videos or spherical videos, can be effective training tools that allow participants to engage with concepts in unexpected ways. This article explores the potential for using 360-degree video for e-learning experiences.
