TELedvisors webinar + UTS LD meetup: Finding leadership pathways in the wilds of learning design
31 October @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm AEDT
Tuesday 31 October 2023, 1-2 pm AEDT (Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra) – 12 noon Brisbane; 10 am Perth, Singapore; 3 pm NZ
Where did you start out in your learning design career? If you answered journalist, media producer, teacher, or HR officer, it wouldn’t be unusual in this growing – and diverging – profession. Learning designers can bring a rich depth of knowledge and experience to their work, but with few ‘typical’ career pathways to follow, where does a talented learning designer go when they’re ready for the next challenge?
As occupants of the ‘Third Space’ in higher education institutions, learning designers can end up feeling that they have no clear map for career progression. At the same time, many find themselves in positions where leading, among other key competencies, is an essential skill.
So what does it mean to be a leader in learning design, and how can we chart a course in that direction? What are the skills and competencies that help learning designers prepare for leadership positions? We’ll explore these questions and more, together with panel guests Tam Nguyen (UNSW), Amanda Lizier (UTS) and Kelly Pattison (Circular Learning) at the upcoming UTS Learning Design Meetup, held in collaboration with the ASCILITE TELedvisors SIG. (TELedvisor webinar regulars, note that this is a Tuesday lunchtime event.)
If you haven’t already registered, we’d love you to join us and our 3 panelists for this combination of TELedvisor October webinar and final quarterly Learning Design Meetup of 2023. The session will be online, but those on the UTS campus can view the session together in the main LX.lab space.
Time & date: Tuesday 31 October, 1-2pm Sydney time
Your UTS LD Meetup hosts are Christina, Lucy, Mais and Jenny. We look forward to seeing you!
