Performance & Learning Month celebrates and promotes the importance of workplace performance and learning to key stakeholders and the public-at-large. It showcases what members and non-members are doing to champion performance and learning in their workplace. I4PL has a deep history in its Learn @ Work Week activities that have evolved into a month-long celebration.
We're honoured to have cities across Canada acknowledge the importance of workplace performance and learning. Their recognition of I4PL's Performance & Learning Month will be included in newsletters throughout the month, starting with John Tory, Mayor of Toronto.
| || Learning Leader Spotlight |
Nominated by Lindsy Pirrie
I would like to nominate Chad Morton, the Learning & Development Supervisor from Bison Transport as a superstar leader in the workplace.
We had a rough start to the year when we lost key team members due to monetary circumstances, but he persevered through this tough time and did not let this loss effect his work as a Learning & Development Specialist. In fact, he helped hold the remaining team members together, especially myself, as this was a shock to all. Chad's sarcastically-witty humour and encouraging spirit uplifted us. With a positive attitude, we started to resurrect relationships with neighboring departments in the hopes we could all live in harmony as "One Bison." As we were on the mend, we welcomed another training team member that was direly needed in another province and he warmly welcomed her to our L&D family.

In any product or service, you need to listen to, understand and capture the voice of the customer. Doing it is critical to how well the customer’s needs are met, and despite a multitude of methodologies, approaches, tools and techniques – many endeavours fall short of properly capturing the full set of customer needs. This webinar provides a preview into the newly designed course about capturing and understanding the Voice of the Customer (VOC) in product development.
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 IMIS (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.

Chief Learning Officer
Maybe there's an executive demanding more visibility into your program, or perhaps you just want a better understanding of how things are going so you can find ways to make them better. You're ready to get started with learning data and analytics, but where do you begin? Data is a powerful tool in the CLO's toolkit, but figuring out how to start using it can be overwhelming.
Learning Solutions Magazine
While organizations relay a lot of information to employees throughout the onboarding process, it's important for new hires to take ownership of their learning. That doesn't mean they decide what activities to complete or what content to consume; instead, it refers to the active role employees play in synthesizing new information and connecting it to what they already understand. This is a process that is embedded into experiential learning.
Computer Business Review
E-learning can pretend all it likes, but its practitioners and more importantly its customers know it's in trouble.
The current average completion rate for MOOCs, massive open online courses, averages out at a very low 15 percent, while some studies put the drop-out rates for online at about 70 percent compared with an average of 15 percent for classroom training. That's a lot of people not completing what you paid for.
As a learning professional, you are often required to report on the effectiveness of your training programs. These reports can be used for a variety of purposes, such as monitoring trainee progress, identifying intervention opportunities, and collecting compliance data.
Globe and Mail
The rapid pace of technological change is transforming the way we work, with powerful new tools and technologies such as artificial intelligence and automation dramatically changing the skills required to be successful. In fact, some studies estimate as much as 50 per cent of Canadian jobs will be disrupted by automation in the next 10 years.
This technological change makes it difficult for schools, governments and business leaders to prepare today's youth for the jobs of tomorrow. So, what can we be doing to help the next generation future-proof their careers?
Across the business landscape, companies are gearing up for the artificial intelligence (AI) transformation of how work is done and by whom — or, increasingly, by what.
In recent years, the prospect of AI and increased automation has raised fears about massive job losses as machines replace humans, not only in manufacturing but also in surprising areas such as accounting and law.
