Webinar Recording Details


There is a growing need for trainers to curate content to support powerful self-learners. Curating allows trainers to help learners find and study valuable content from informal sources like blogs, articles, webinars, videos, white papers, case studies and others. Unfortunately, trainers are accustomed to the “they-must-learn-my-content” mindset and misunderstand their new roles as curators. They miss the opportunities to serve learners with varied and far-reaching knowledge. They need to shift to the “follow-your-own-interest” mindset.

Topics covered:

  • What does research show about the growth and demand of the new trainer role, the curator?
  • What are the challenges and opportunities in training for curation?
  • What do powerful self-learners need?
  • How do you combine your courses with informal sources of learning?
  • How do you track and ensure that powerful self-learners stay within the “Grid” of your instructional design?
