2023 Air Force Learning Professionals’ Consortium call for topics now open Published Aug. 18, 2022 By Larisa Langley JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas (AFNS) -- The call for topics for the 2023 Learning Professionals’ Consortium has been released by Air Education and Training Command’s Learning Professionals Branch. The theme of the 2023 event is, “Imagine – Create – Innovate,” with a focus on development of the community of knowledgeable and committed learning professionals. “As planning gets underway for the virtual event scheduled for March 22-23, 2023, it’s important that potential presenters have time to develop quality submissions,” said Dr. Angela Canada, AETC’s Learning Professionals’ and Force Development Credentialing Division chief. “In past years we have had presenters from not only the Department of the Air Force, but sister services, academia and industry as well. Our attendees expect high-caliber sessions.” Learning professionals are those personnel who analyze, design, develop, deliver, support, administer, manage, or evaluate education and training. The Learning Professionals’ Consortium gives attendees an opportunity to learn best practices, hear successful collaboration stories, and gain solutions to learning issues. The two-day event will feature keynote speakers, presentations, panels, and discussion forums, focusing on topics relevant to learning professionals. Those interested in presenting at the LPC-23 can submit their topic here. Topics should support development of the learning professionals’ community. Presenters are welcome to submit more than one topic. Topic submission forms are due no later than Sept. 30. “We are excited to continue to offer the opportunity to enhance learning development for the women and men we serve,” said Col. Shelly Mendieta, deputy director for Force Development for AETC’s Operations and Communications Directorate. “Through this virtual conference, we offer the ability for anyone who supports or works in a learning environment to interact, collaborate, and grow, no matter where their physical location.” The Learning Professionals’ Consortium is designed for learning professionals across the Air Force to meet, interact, and ultimately collaborate on innovations that will enhance learning and development. The division’s goal is to build a community of learning professionals who work together to accelerate the transformation of the military learning paradigm.
