New LC Blog – What Issues/Trends Do You Want Us to Cover?

Change is afoot for the LC Blog. After many years of managing the LC Blog for us, we’re giving Tony Karrer a much needed break. (We’re actually hoping that will give him time to work on other projects for ASTD. Shhh. He doesn’t know about that part...yet.) Please join ASTD in thanking Tony for his many years of managing the LC Blog. We couldn’t have carried on these last years without him—or the Big Question Thought Leaders who helped keep us up and running.

So, what do we have planned? For several years the LC Blog has focused on having industry leaders respond to a Big Question of the Month (the LCBQ). We’re planning on expanding the blog by inviting those experts and other “blogger extraordinaires” to take over the blog. Starting in October, each month a different thought leader will post to the blog weekly. They will pose their own LCBQ, remark on new technology and tools, and report on issues and trends affecting workplace learning and performance professionals directly working with technology.

In the meantime, Justin Brusino, ASTD Community of Practice Manager for Learning Technologies (more about him next week), and I will make a few posts introducing you to the coming blog leaders and asking readers what experts we should tap for this new venture and issues they should address. To that end, the September #LCBQ is:

What issues and trends do you think are having a major impact on the industry—and should be on the hot list for the LC Blog to tackle?

How to Respond:

Option 1 - Simply put your thoughts in a comment below.

Option 2 - Tweet your thoughts using the hastag: #LCBQ. We will do our best to collect together tweets around the topic.

Option 3 - Post in your blog (please link to this post). We recommend including #LCBQ in your title to help us. 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 post, thus, I would also recommend you include your NAME immediately before your link (or you could also include your blog name). So, it should look like: Tony Karrer -
e-Learning 2.0 : eLearningTechnology.

Stay tuned!

Thanks for your thoughts, Miguel. All of those topics are on are radar for the coming months. Ben Betts will be our first guest blogger for October and he has a lot of expertise in the are of games -- so look for more on that topic next month.

Andrea, great ideas. Content Curation is something that is top of my mind as well. Clive wrote a great blog post on the topic a few months back that you might want to check out (if you haven't seen it already). http://clive-shepherd.blogspot.com/2011/06/l-professional-as-curator.html#links

Totally agree with all those things Meguel mentioned, with added best practices from the community on how a small, scrappy (or one person!) team can develop these type things on a shoestring budget and short timeframe.

PS...What's up with the gazillion incoming links from Hedge Scherlund's eLearning News?? Sheesh!
