Leading Learning provides a range of resources to help learning business professionals excel in the global market for lifelong learning, continuing education, and professional development – the core of what we call the third sector of education. Current Leading Learning resources include a podcast, a Webinar series, an e-newsletter, an annual virtual conference, and a community of practice.

Learning • Technology • Design
Launched in 2016 and converted to virtual in 2017, Learning • Technology • Design is an annual online conference designed specifically for professionals who serve the market for continuing education, professional development, and lifelong learning.
Leading Learning Connective
The Leading Learning Connective is a private community of practice where knowledge and community connect for professionals in the business of continuing education, professional development, and lifelong learning. It is also where we provide access to recordings from Learning • Technology • Design (LTD), our annual virtual conference.
At the core of Leading Learning is the recognition that being a professional in a learning business is different from working in a corporate learning and development department or in academic degree programs. Learning business professionals have to understand how to create effective learning experiences, but they also have to understand business—how to attract, convert, and retain customers for their learning experiences in an increasingly competitive marketplace.
Our goals for Leading Learning are to:
- Raise awareness of the third sector of education and the critical role that learning businesses play in it.
- Help learning businesses increases the reach, revenue, and impact of their offerings.
- Support individual learning professionals in achieving high levels of performance in their work.
