Complete Collection of My Sketchnotes from the CIPD L&D Show 2017
Rachel Burnham writes: I have been fortunate to spend the last two days at
the CIPD L&D Show as a member of the BlogSquad.This is the team of volunteers who report on
the conference via social media through Twitter, blogs and video tools (eg
Periscope and SnapChat).During the
event my preferred medium is to Sketchnote, which I then photograph and tweet
out on the hashtag for the event #cipdldshow, though I also produced a short
video, using SnapChat, to capture a flavour of the second day and this is now
available on YouTube.
The conference is
fast paced with up to four sessions a day and a number of different options for
each of these sessions – all relevant to today’s L&D professionals.Some sessions such as the ones on webinars
and creating your own videos using your mobile phone, which I report on below,
were highly practical tips sharing sessions.Other sessions were more about giving the big picture and sharing
stimulating ideas - an excellent example was Dr Liz Mellon’s session on ‘Creating
Agile Workforces’.Whilst others focused
on sharing practical experience from organisations - great examples of this
were Sarah Lindsell, from PwC, drawing on her experience of creating a ‘Future-Fit
L&D Strategy’ and also both speakers in the session on ‘Upskilling your
managers to have Effective Coaching Conversations’.
In addition, there
was also the exhibition hall full of stands and lots of free short sessions to
attend.For a flavour of this why not
take a look at these two short videos, also produced on SnapChat, by my
colleague Mike Shaw – Day 1 and Day 2.I participated in a session about the launch of the new BSI standards
for L&D PD76006 and you will find my Sketchnote about this below.
At this stage, my
head is still reeling with the amount of information and ideas bouncing
around.I know it will take me some time
to sort through and make some sense out of this.I will be blogging on my learning and reflections from the
Show over the coming days and weeks.
In the meantime, here
are all nine of the Sketchnotes I created live at the Show.
Burnham L & D Consultancy helps L&D professionals update
and refresh their skills. I am particularly interested in blended
learning, the use of digital skills for learning, evaluation and anything that
improves the impact of learning on performance.
