Working with Subject Matter Experts (SMEs)

Instructional design teams and subject matter experts create and deliver impactful learning experiences and events.  Successful collaborations can result in great results and mutual learning.  However, just like any other project, sometimes designing and developing learning can be fraught with challenges such as power struggles, steep learning curves, scope creep, miscommunication, and utter chaos.  The impacts of such challenges can be low morale, poor (or no) results, added expense, missed deadlines, and stress. 

This fun, interactive session focuses on specific, practical best practices to build and maintain productive and constructive relationships between SMEs and instructional design teams built on mutual respect and a spirit of collaboration and mutual learning. 

Learning Outcomes

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

- Discuss common challenges between SMEs and instructional design teams

- Identify the root causes of common challenges

- Develop specific strategies around relationship building, project planning, and collaborating for results

The Competencies of True Learning Professionals

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
