Media Competencies for Talent Professionals

TechKnowledge 2015 Session: W202
Jonathan Halls | January 14, 2015 | Video

Video is the new flipchart. No longer will the marker pen and flipchart pad be the primary medium that trainers use to aid learning. As talent professionals continue to expand their classroom beyond brick-and-mortar to smartphones, tablets, and desktops, their flipchart will become video and audio. The trainers who will be in demand in five years time will be talent professionals who have well-developed media competencies in the use of audio, video, online text, animation, and database content.   As media content for learning goes beyond novelty to fact of life, in-demand professionals will need to create content that is professional, engaging, focused, and linked to a learning objective or business need. So how do we get there? This session will explore the key skills learning professionals should start developing now to be competitive in a future where content creation skills are essential. It will look at competencies from broadcasting and newspapers that can be applied to a learning environment and how they work together with training skills so talent professionals can affordably and rapidly create high quality learning media. 

Blind Leading the Blind, or Brilliant Use of Millennial Talent: You Decide.

ATD 2014 Session: M305
Adele Lynn | May 05, 2014 | Video

You've seen the headlines: 'Gimme, Gimme, Gimme; Millennials in the Workplace' and 'New Polls Shows Many Think Millennials Aren't Hard Workers.' Thanks to these stereotypes, many of today's workplace learning efforts have been focused on understanding generational differences and helping leaders manage Millenials. Using a unique case study, this session will discuss techniques aimed at assisting new hire Millennials with on-boarding, cultural integration, and career development in the organization. This approach uses Millenials' emotional intelligence to help them navigate the organization in a way that is productive for themselves, as well as their boomer and X'er bosses. The three phase program helps Millenials measure, understand, and develop their emotional intelligence and apply these concepts to their job, organization, and career. Through this program they will gain: tools for understanding, valuing, and respecting their organization, career intelligence about their organization, a peer mentor to exchange career intelligence, and further develop job and organizational skills. This session will include a detailed outline of the project, timetable, project results (including viewpoints from the Millenials and their bosses), and an overview of the three exercises used in the curriculum.
