    Regardless of your job title, if you’re working in the training industry, particularly in a production capacity, you need an online portfolio. Why do you need a portfolio? Because it will work for you! Portfolios allow you to focus on the things you really enjoy doing, while potentially funneling prospective employers or clients to your inbox.

    Building your eLearning portfolio doesn’t need to be an overwhelming task. This session will equip you for the portfolio-building journey, and you’ll learn insider information about what works well, what doesn’t work at all, and lessons learned in building an eLearning portfolio. You will also have the opportunity to address your most pressing concerns.

    In this session you’ll learn:

    • About the importance of having a portfolio
    • About common challenges in building an eLearning portfolio and how to overcome them
    • How to build out and host your portfolio
    • How to promote your portfolio

    Audience:

    Novice to advanced designers and developers.

    Main Presentation

    From Franklin Planner to Outlook, the concept of setting down your tasks and goals somewhere is central to most productivity and performance management systems.  And yet, we may find ourselves constrained by system parameters and elements of the forms that were created by other people, meant for what was a community decision of what the majority of their customers would use.

    We may have already tried one or more of these systems, become frustrated with them, not connected to the methodology, and eventually discarded them in our briefcase's recesses.

    The very date for this new year holds a promise of clear vision (say it with us: twenty-twenty). So we'd like to introduce you to a method of ensuring that clarity with a system of documenting your past, present, and future in one journal that you create - the bullet journal.

    The bullet journal system is an effective and well-designed framework for gathering and storing information from a wide range of categories. Once you put the system to work, your journal will become a surprisingly stress-free way to keep track of to-dos, future plans, notes to self, long-term goals, monthly calendars, and more. 

    Recognition

    Our volunteers are the heart of our organization.  At the conclusion of each year, we celebrate our volunteers who have gone above and beyond to support us. 

    If volunteered for ATD-OC this year, check your email! You should receive a discount code to join the event. 

    Board

    This is a great opportunity to meet your newest Board Members, and reconnect with those who are staying on for another term.

    Every year brings new developments to the talent development industry -- either in the field of learning and development, or in the workforce which we serve.  

    Tonight we're pleased to talk about these developments with ### Orange County talent development leaders.  We'll explore the trends that are impacting talent development, and how those trends have been incorporated (or not) into the training conducted at each panelist's organization. And we'll take a brief look into the future, hoping to catch a glimpse of how L&D could be impacted by the innovations that are making headlines today.

    We'll look at three sets of data:

    1. Learning and development trends and patterns identified in ATD National's State of the Industry report
    2. Innovations, both new and ongoing, that continue to impact learning and development strategy
    3. The future of work, as outlined by ATD National's Future of Work report.

    Our learners have changed. We can’t afford to solely focus on business impact and performance. We now serve an audience made of consumers. These consumers are used to incredible experiences, using the best technology, all while helping them learn and perform better. The new theories, approaches, and technology intersecting within our field can feel overwhelming and impossible to stay on top of. In this time of change, you can use the framework of a product manager to tackle all of these new approaches and technology and prepare yourself for whatever comes next.

    Application On The Job:

    Explore the role of the product manager and how the responsibilities align with the role of learning system owner or designer.


    Facilitated by: 

    Matthew Daniel, who will send his bio over the closer we get to the event.
