Free Webinar: March 30th Challenge & Change – the African View of L&D in 2022

The upcoming webinar from eLearning Africa “Challenge and Change – the African View of Learning & Development (L&D) in 2022” will take place online this Wednesday, March 30 from 13:30 – 14:30 hrs GMT. This event will be hosted by Donald H Taylor, Chair, Learning Technologies Conference.

About the Webinar:

Last year, L&D globally was dominated by the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic. What has changed this year, as we emerge from its impact?

The answer: everything has changed, and nothing has. Technology, expectations and much more has altered over the past two years, but the organisational focus is still very much on delivering training, rather than helping people learn and – with a few exceptions – L&D seems far from its goal of providing strategic input at the highest levels.

In this session, Donald will explain the key themes in L&D that emerged from his L&D Global Sentiment Survey 2022, answered this year by over 3,500 people in 112 countries worldwide. He’ll look at major trends, some of the geographical differences across the world, and explore the results from Africa in some detail.

  • L&D’s shifting priorities in 2022
  • The challenges we’re facing across the world
  • Are we moving from technology to humanizing L&D?
  • The Why and the How of L&D this year
  • Listening to L&D voices from Africa

This will be a highly topical, important and interactive event and should be a fascinating discussion.

Join on Wednesday, March 30 from:

Start time: 13:30 GMT / UTC  – 14:30 WAT – 15:30 CAT / CEST / SAST – 16:30 EAT

End time: 14:30 GMT / UTC  – 15:30 WAT – 16:30 CAT / CEST / SAST – 17:30 EAT
