Nominate a Learning Leader
Is there someone you consider to be superstar in your workplace or a mentor who has helped guide your career? Let us know who they are and why you consider them to be a leader in the field.

Thank you to all who submitted proposals for I4PL’s 2019 Webinar Series! We are currently reviewing the submissions and will respond to applicants in four business weeks.
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.
In this world of fast paced change, we are often told to challenge the status quo – that nothing is sacred. The trouble is that we are failing more than we are succeeding when it comes to change; research continues to show only about a 30% success rate when implementing change. How do we improve our track record? Challenge the change!

How can we support career goals in the workplace through a culture of continuous learning?
For too long we have sacrificed learning and development in the workplace in favour of deadlines and short-term projects. The attitude seems to have been: “Why should we spend time on coaching when we can instead focus on short-term wins that bring tangible benefits?”
Are you feeling daunted by the prospect of having to write a strategy for 2019? Well, thanks to leading research into the future of learning there is plenty of fantastic data to support your work and hopefully inject a bit of inspiration.
Learning Solutions Magazine
"While many pundits claim the LMS is dead or dying, survey data show it is still the predominant learning platform," writes Steve Foreman in a recent Guild research report, Trends in Learning Technology. He found that 98 per cent of large organizations (defined as those with more than 5,000 employees) today use an LMS product, as do 80 per cent of small organizations (those with 1 — 500 employees). Foreman's research indicates that overall, 86 per cent of all organizations use an LMS product.
Job seekers are able to be more demanding in today's tight labour market and their demands often include a path to growth paved by learning and development initiatives. More employers are boasting their paths to advancement with career frameworks, even at the recruitment phase. In addition to boosting proficiency, frameworks can demonstrate an investment in talent by communicating to employees that their upward mobility is not just possible, but expected.
