In this webinar for LearningCafe our CEO, Rhonda Brighton-Hall was invited to be a panelist to discuss the topic of Lifelong Learning. They answered the question ‘Should L&D/HR be Architects of Lifelong Learning in the Workforce?’.
On the panel with Rhonda sat Tony Gleeson (Chief Executive Officer & Company Secretary at AIRAH), Kristin Boag (HR Manager at Australian Trade & Investment Commission) and Jeevan Joshi (Founder of LearningCafe & CapabilityCafe).
The Economist dedicated a January 2017 issue to Lifelong Learning, bringing to fore the need for everyone to be Lifelong Learners. This is due to rapid changes in jobs and the skills required for them.
Lifelong Learning is here to stay. While individuals need to take responsibility to keep their capabilities up to date, organisations can support them by helping them create a mindset and skills for Lifelong Learning. L&D can be the architects by providing support and tools while being the advocate for Lifelong Learning.
In this webinar, we discuss if L&D currently advocates or has the mandate to support Lifelong Learning and how best they can achieve this.
- How important is being a lifelong learner for individuals? Who is responsible for it?
- What role is L&D playing in Lifelong Learning?
- How the current L&D offerings can be hopefully tweaked for Lifelong Learning?
- Do our organisations support Lifelong Learning? Is there a mandate? Is there a budget?
