1:00–2:00 pm EST

Those who write, design, lead, facilitate or manage the training of others must be competent – or even exemplary – because these L & D professionals directly influence the employees who are trained. What competencies are essential for learning and development professionals? What skills do they need to implement the educational aspects of the learning mission, and how do they ensure ethical practices? How do organizations document learning staff qualifications? How do L&D managers address the development, demonstration, and improvement of skills and ethical behavior among learning staff members?

Learning Outcomes

By the end of this webinar, attendees will be able to:

  • Discuss key skills and abilities needed by competent learning & development professionals.
  • Describe professional codes of conduct to encourage ethical behavior among learning & development professionals.
  • Explore resources to ensure the L&D team is qualified to conduct learning professionally
  • Discuss challenges learning professionals are currently facing
