    Description:

    Join us for the inaugural meeting of the L&D Philly Book Club!

    Each meeting of the book club will provide an opportunity for us to come together as a community of L&D professionals to discuss a book from a member of our extended community to aid in our personal development.

    This club has 2 rules:

    1. Read the book prior to the meeting (or at least MOST of it).
    2. Come to the meeting ready to discuss the book.

    This month we will be discussing "Make It Stick: The Science of Successful Learning 1st Edition" by Peter C. Brown, Henry L. Roediger III and  Mark A. McDaniel.

    Be sure to read the book before July 17! 

    It is available for purchase at https://www.amazon.com/Make-Stick-Science-Successful-Learning/dp/0674729013

    Description:

    Just when you thought you had Millennials figured out, along comes Gen Z.

    According to research, these young folks— born between the mid-1990s to around 2010—care deeply about others, strive for a diverse community, are highly collaborative and social, and value flexibility, relevance, authenticity and non-hierarchical leadership.

    Gen Z is notable for being the first generation to be totally immersed in the world of the internet since birth. They are said to be more passionate than generations of the past, likely to turn hobbies into careers and very likely to harbor the desire to give back. In addition, they’ve been bombarded with the notion that you are responsible for your own success—a far cry from the beliefs of older generations.

    They’re competitive, informed, and opinionated. And they’re coming to your workplace (or maybe they’re already there).

    Are you and your team ready?

    In this engaging, high-energy presentation, you’ll learn what Gen Z values, desires, and demands from their employers, and what that means to your organization. For example:

    • What are the implications of Gen Z’s self-reliance and keen sense of social equity and responsibility—born of an early familiarity with the Internet and other digital tools—for your organization?
    • How might popular Gen Z myths—that they’re lazy and coddled, for example— impact your organization’s success?
    • How might Gen Z’s preference for flexibility, pragmatism, and social connection play out in the workplace of 2024 and beyond?
    • What role do respect, trust and appreciation play in creating a healthy multigenerational team?
    • How can we remain open to future-oriented ideas from Gen Z while avoiding biases that can get in the way?

    Description:

    AI is transforming how L&D professionals work. We can generate courses from source materials in minutes. We can translate content into dozens of languages with a single click. We can adapt learning experiences to individual employee’s needs in real time. AI-powered technology is helping us solve familiar problems faster and more efficiently.

    But this is just the beginning of L&D’s transformation.

    Let’s explore the immediate and long-term impacts of AI on L&D. Rather than focus on the technology, we’ll discuss L&D’s reimagined role in an AI-enabled workplace, including how we can leverage new tools to amplify subject matter experts, keep pace with operational change and foster equitable learning experiences.

    You’ll leave this session with an action plan for shaping your AI-informed L&D strategy, along with a pile of curated resources and exclusive access to the newest chapter of JD’s book, “AI Meets The Modern Learning Ecosystem.”
