ATD Tulsa is hosting a really cool webinar this month with Pat Michaels of Great Learning Circle. “A Practical Approach to Creating Guidebooks for V/ILT” will equip Session attendees to be able to:
✅ Describe the dual roles that guidebooks play for the facilitator and participant.
✅ Replicate the structure to create guidebooks that ensure consistency across multiple trainers, locations, and sessions.
✅ Organize their course for effective VILT programs regardless of the virtual delivery platform (Zoom, Teams, WebEx, etc.).
Bonus points: the program has been pre-approved by the ATD Certification Institute for 1 credit to be used towards initial eligibility and recertification of the Certified Professional in Talent Development (CPTD) and Associate Professional in Talent Development (APTD) credentials!
You all know my love for Pantheon and how thankful I am to work for such an awesome company. When I came across this gem in our docs, I loved them even more! A lot of folks and organizations don’t talk enough about using inclusive language beyond diversity. We need more talk about avoiding gendered language, terminology that may be triggering and traumatic for folks, and avoiding ableist language.
Be sure to check out Inclusive Language at Pantheon and in the Pantheon Community. These practices need to be incorporated everywhere, not just in the Pantheon universe. Examples and alternatives are provided, as well!
Speaking of Pantheon awesomeness… cue the magnificent Heidi Kirby and her new newsletter (that’s fun to say): The Learning Culture Club! Not only is she an amazing boss, tremendously helpful in the L&D community, but she is also a kickass newsletter creator!
You absolutely MUST hop on over to her site and sign up! You’ll thank me for it, I promise!
