Your guide to L&D professional development events in June

If you have any EOFY dollars left in the coffers, there’s a range of PD opportunities you could spend them on over the next month.

For those interested in eLearning, there’s the Adobe Captivate online beginners course running over 4 weeks, an eLearning design hangout and a webinar on micro learning strategy.

You can get accredited as an Extended DISC Practitioner, Lego Serious Play Facilitator and/or a PR6 Certified Resilience Coach or just let your thumbs do the work on one of the regular Twitter chats.

And I’ll see you at the Australian Workplace Learning Conference and Meetup on 6-7 June where I’ll be chatting about the Learning Uncut podcast and stalking new podcast guests… 🙂
