New Skills for Learning Professionals

This month's big question comes out of a discussion that I've been having in various forms over the past few years. In a Learning 2.0 world, where learning and performance solutions take on a wider variety of forms and where churn happens at a much more rapid pace, what new skills and knowledge are required for learning professionals?



New Skills and Knowledge for Learning Professionals?


I know that there's already quite a bit out there on this topic, so please point us to existing information on the topic.

How to Respond:

Option 1 - Put your thoughts in a comment below. Likely there can be some pretty good thoughts left via a comment.

Option 2 -

Step 1 - Post in your blog (please link to this post).
Step 2 - Put a comment in this blog with an HTML ready link that I can simply copy and paste (an HTML anchor tag). I will only copy and past, thus, I would also recommend you include your NAME immediately before your link. So, it should look like:

Tony Karrer - e-Learning 2.0

or you could also include your blog name with something like:

Tony Karrer - e-Learning 2.0 : eLearningTechnology

Sahana: Reading different posts related to this question took me to 12 Learning Predictions for 2009 from Tony Karrer. Was trying to map the predictions to the new skills many have mentioned and thought it would be useful to share the link here again. 12 Learning Predictions for 2009

Tony Karrer said...

Sahana - thanks for the pointers/contributions.

On Eric's - the link doesn't really work - is there another URL?

On the fantastic post (by me) - I'm not quite connecting the dots that you are seeing.

Maybe a comment or another post.

Look forward to continue conversation.
