2023 Fall Learning Series

September 26 @ 8:00 am - November 14 @ 5:00 pm


The 2023 Fall Nonprofit Learning Series focuses on how we design for deeper learning. You create a workshop or webinar because people need help doing something. You put a lot of work into delivering these workshops. You want to be sure that the diverse people in the room learn and can take action on what they learned. You want their feedback to further strengthen the learningfulness of your trainings. What a virtual cycle—they learn, you learn, and they learn more!

Every year we invite experts to share their unique knowledge, tools, and perspectives with people who deliver workshops, webinars, or conference sessions within the social sector.  These sessions are also relevant for association learning leaders who hire speakers or plan learning events. It is designed to be action-focused, meaning that you will complete the series with actionable next steps and tools to support your success.

The Nonprofit Learning Series is moderated by Nancy Bacon, a teacher, instructional designer, and learning strategist who has worked for over 25 years in the nonprofit sector. Now in its third year, the Nonprofit Learning Series creates the space for a community of consultants, trainers, and learning leaders to hone their practice. You are encouraged to register for the full series to experience the full collection of knowledge and tools; you may register for just one of the sessions if you prefer.
