As part of Employee Learning Week 2017, we are presenting a series of webinars from the CoP leaders on trends and technologies in their CoP area. In this webinar, you will hear from two different CoP leaders: Instructional Design CoP Leader Robert Jordan and Career Connections Leader and President-Elect Pam Marshall Annitto. Each CoP will speak about about trends and technologies in each prospective Community of Practice. Robert Jordan will speak at 7:30 p.m. (ET) and Pam Marshall Annitto will speak at 8:05 p.m. (ET). Reflections on the Instructional Design Field: Ask 10 Instructional Designers what they do and you are likely to get 10 different answers, Is what we do actually about "design" in the true sense of the word or is what we do more about project management and giving organizational leaders and stakeholders what they want? Do ID practitioners even speak a common lingo? What role do ethics play in ID? In this provocative webinar, Robert Jordan will discuss these questions and more.

Career Connections: Improve Your Performance Through Work-life Balance. In today’s fast-paced world, as we strive to improve our performance, we often neglect activities that have been shown to improve performance—reflection, learning, planning, and recharging. Think about it: outstanding performance (whether in the workplace, or in other areas of our life) cannot be attained at its highest level over an infinite period of time. And today, with technology improvements and the ability to telework, it can be challenging to set work aside and to focus on other priorities, including ourselves.

This interactive Webinar will focus on strategies for integrating reflection, learning, planning, and recharging into your life and career. Please come prepared to share your favorite strategies, and to take away additional ideas for improving your work-life balance in 2018.
