Everyone working today is aware of changes in the workplace such as globalization, rapid knowledge obsolesce, and the role technology. There is abundant opportunity to learn about 4th Industrial Revolution, On-Demand Economy, and the Digital Platform Economy but not much connecting-the-dots. This presentation connects the dots by looking at what these changes mean for training and career development professionals. We will connect the dots and explore the impacts on workers and the flip side how it impacts employers. We will drill down on alternative credentialing and the role of learning technology such as xAPI and learning record store (LRS). If you’ve noticed and put aside trends in the new economy such as; the numbers of “gig” or contract workers, technical skills that are perishable, non-linear career paths, companies that are smaller, more short-term project based engagements and the un-bundling of jobs- join us for a this session.

At the end of this session you will be able to:
*Identify the key trends that are changing career development for workers and employers

*Discuss how these factors will change workers approach to career development and the knock on impacts for employers

*Explore the questions we should be asking about evolving resume worthy credentials

*Describe how learning technology such as xAPIs and learning record stores are designed to meet the demand of the new economy.
