David Kelly’s Curated L&D Content for the Week of 4/26/21

David Kelly, Executive Director, The Learning Guild

Over a year ago I updated the opening copy for my weekly curation to highlight resources that can help us navigate the pandemic, as well as the usual resources that can help enhance our work as learning professionals. Who would have thought a year later we’d still be looking at our work through that dual-lens.

While there’s light at the end of the tunnel with COVID-19, its effects will last for some time after the pandemic ends. Each week’s curated resources will continue to focus on everyday knowledge and skills as well as resources focused on navigating the ever-evolving nature of the pandemic and its after-effects.

Here’s a summary of this week’s content:

  • A look at the new LXP Platform from Linkedin
  • The important role KPIs play in your microlearning strategy
  • Reflections on some of the biggest EdTech failures of the last decade
  • Tips on how to support parents who continue to work from home
  • How systems thinking can help you overcome imposter syndrome
