We’re continuing our free Leading Learning Webinar series geared at helping associations and others in the lifelong learning field actively lead the learning their organizations offer—so the learning is effective for the learner, the organization, and the broader profession or society at large.
We’re focusing on three big-bucket topics: learning, marketing, and technology. Our next Webinar (coming up on April 10) deals with how to select a learning management system that’s right for your association. While some might be tempted to assign LMSes to the technology bucket alone or, if they’re feeling generous, the technology and learning buckets, learning management systems really should span all three—technology, learning, and marketing.
