Dear I4PL Members,
We’re just under a week away from our annual I4PL Conference; the place to connect with our colleagues, meet new ones, learn together and evolve our practice.
I can’t tell you how different this year will be for me, with a new lens on the Performance and Learning industry, a grasp of the global concerns of practitioners, the questions being asked, and the areas in which we’re all hoping to grow as an industry. What I look forward to in the coming months is discovering what the challenges are in your role, with your team, your organization, and where you would like to grow professionally. These insights will help us provide you as an I4PL member with what you need now and for the future.
What we are excited to announce is that for the past few months, we’ve been working with subject matters experts (dedicated volunteers) and the phenomenal design team at Tuesday Afternoon Media, to bring you ‘From Paper to Practice: Competencies for Performance and Learning Professionals’. This workshop series, which will be virtual, and live facilitated, has been created to bring together the best practices and practical approaches used by Performance and Learning professionals. More information will be provided in the upcoming weeks and at the I4PL Conference booth.

History of the Durham Chapter
by Peter Taylor, Past Chapter Chair, Durham Chapter
On June 2nd, 2002, a number of local members of what was then the Ontario Society for Training and Development (OSTD), attended an OSTD meeting at the Central Lake Ontario Conservation Authority facility in Oshawa. While we appreciated that this particular meeting was being held locally to many members, we felt there was opportunities for professional development closer to our region. A small group of us brainstormed together and came up with a solution!
The result was the formation of the Durham Chapter. It was agreed that we would work together for as long as we were sharing the labors, getting results and enjoying ourselves. I agreed to be the first Chair. Heather Metcalfe and Jill Holiday agreed to work with me on the executive committee. READ MORE
As project managers, one of the biggest constraints we face is resources. This constraint is complicated by key stakeholders on the project not progressing through the ‘change curve’ as smoothly as we would like. This is where we introduce the concept of the Local Change Agent as our eyes, ears, and advocates in the field. These agents allows us to not only extend our presence as we manage those large, cross functional projects, but they also increase the credibility of our message as it is coming from a local, and not just from management. David Donaldson breaks down the value of the local change agent in this one-hour webinar. Watch here
Huge congratulations to our members who became certified and achieved the CTDP Designation in September 2018!

As technological change transforms nearly every facet of the enterprise, HR and talent development leaders are under increased pressure to accelerate both the pace and frequency with which their employees develop an array of soft and technical skills. With good reason, employers are experimenting with the application of emerging technologies — adaptive, mobile, immersive and even virtual reality — to bridge skills gaps and engage learners across the globe. The advent of digital credentials is also helping organizations create more transparent career pathways as the labor market tightens and churn rates grow.

Developing a learning data strategy is all about the outcomes. It's about the change that will happen in your organization as a result of design decisions that you implement for putting data to work. The best way to create a learning data strategy is to think about not only what you have today, but to focus on where you want to go and what it is that you want your learners, managers and stakeholders to be able to learn from and to do with data you make available to them.
According to a 2016 study published by Harvard Business Review, 90 percent of companies will compete on the basis of the customer experience they offer. But in order to offer outstanding customer service, companies must ensure their teams are fully aligned and trained at all times. How to overcome this challenge? Learning Engagement.

Advances in artificial intelligence technologies have a certain "cool" factor. But their import goes far beyond automation, transforming the future of manufacturing and offering engaging new ways to present e-Learning and performance support. The impact of AI on accessibility is profound, with implications for L&D and far beyond. AI can improve e-Learning accessibility in ways unimaginable just a few years ago; here are a few of them.
