How empowered are you? Webinars will help workplace learning

The Open University Business School is a proud supporter of the biggest festival of workplace learning in the UK known as Learning at Work Week.

Learning at Work Week, taking place from 14-20 May with a theme of ‘Networked for Learning’, aims to highlight the importance and benefits of learning and development at work.

This support is part of Executive Education’s partnership with Campaign for Learning, a national not-for-profit organisation that promotes lifelong learning, which has organised this annual awareness campaign every May since 1999.

One of our Associate Lecturers, Laurie Knell, is the presenter for two free webinars on modern empowerment – one this week (Wednesday 25 April) and one to mark the actual start of Learning at Work Week on Monday 14 May – run in association with Campaign for Learning.

The first webinar, The opportunities and challenges of present day empowerment – how might empowerment be different in the future?, is aimed at HR and learning and development professionals. Laurie is being assisted by the National Director for the Campaign for Learning, Julia Wright, as facilitator for this lunchtime session.

Then another lunchtime webinar to kick-start Learning at Work Week, How empowered are you? Why you and your employer should care!, will answer the important question of why both you and your employer should be concerned with empowerment. It is on from 12:30 – 13:00 on 14 May and please register here.
