Drawing on the latest research, "Professional Practice in Learning and Development" highlights the new opportunities technology has made available to L&D practitioners through new media and the networked world in which we live. It looks at approaches to helping people learn and how to develop tailored L&D programs for an organization. With a focus on digital, blended, and social learning, the editor and contributors explain how to understand the context of L&D, design and develop digital and blended learning solutions, facilitate collective and social learning, enhance participant engagement in the learning process, and develop and deliver L&D solutions for international markets.
This book offers online resources such as lecturer notes and slides and additional reflective questions and case studies. Additionally, chapters include case studies, exercises, and reflective questions to help develop skills in facilitating collaborative learning, working in teams, and communicating effectively with all stakeholders.
