Help Wanted: Hiring eLearning Professionals

244 views

Published on

DevLearn 2016 presentation by Jeff Goldman & David Schwartz.
Given that the role of the eLearning professional has a wide range of possible responsibilities, hiring a person who has the exact set of skills and experience to meet the specific needs of your organization can be daunting. How can you ensure you find individuals who have the expertise needed to function successfully on your team and really hit the ground running?

In this session, you’ll explore the particular competencies you’ll want to look for when hiring a new eLearning professional. You’ll find out more about where to look for qualified candidates and what experience, education, certifications, and training you’ll want your new hire to possess. To help you dig deeper on your candidates’ skill sets, you’ll discuss what to look for in a candidate’s work, approaches to reviewing portfolios, and what questions to ask—including how you can use behavioral interviewing to craft interview questions specific to the position and your department’s needs. And while it’s great to know how to find new talent, it’s even better to not need to hire at all. You’ll finish this session by looking at actions you can take to develop and retain the talented eLearning staff you already have.
