Invitation: Nominate Africa’s Leading Workplace eLearning Professionals
This email to invite you to nominate candidates for the Top 50 most influential Africans in workplace eLearning. This list of Africa’s leading thought leaders, opinion formers and practitioners in eLearning in the workplace in both the corporate and public sectors is scheduled to be published shortly before this year’s eLearning Africa conference, which will be held in Kigali, Rwanda, from 26th to 28th September. This list, which will be published under the ‘Bob Little’ brand, should draw worldwide attention to the eLearning activities going on throughout Africa.
If there is anybody you think should be considered to be on this list, please feel free to nominate them using the form at the end this message which you can send by return email.
Eligibility/ Judging Criteria
The selection/ eligibility criteria for names on the African Workplace eLearning Movers and Shakers List will be the same as for the ‘main’ List. That is:
People named on the List will be influential within the workplace e-learning sector both within their country and the continent. Those who are influential on a wider geographic scale will tend to rank higher than those who are influential “only” on a national level.
Although academics can be named on this list, they should be considered only in so far as their work influences those in the corporate world in Africa.
The list is compiled on the basis of a person’s perceived current influence on the workplace online learning industry – as a practitioner, commentator, facilitator and/or thought leader. In today’s social media influenced age, this tends to give social media users, especially bloggers, a greater “international profile” and “thought leader influence” than, say, practitioners. Nonetheless, the judges will try to take account of the work and influence of “pure” industry practitioners, including those who are active “behind the scenes”. These people have a significant, if often unseen, influence over the industry.
When considering who you will nominate for this List, please consider which online learning practitioners, commentators, facilitators and/or thought leaders most inspire and influence you – and your colleagues.
If you need further guidance, please view the main Corporate eLearning Movers and Shakers’ List.
For the sake of continuity – and credibility for both lists – it would be good to reflect this in the Africa List. However, the Africa List should focus on those who’re influential in eLearning across the continent of Africa, rather than those from Africa who’re influential on the world stage.
To produce the List, please complete the template ‘entry form’ below.
Please supply the required details of as many people as you feel meet the criteria to be included on the List.
Please note that you cannot nominate yourself. However, your name could be on the List if another ‘nominator’ includes you on their list. The Nomination Form is attached and please copy – and complete – this template for each person you want to nominate. You can nominate as many (different) people as you wish – but, please, only submit one nomination per individual nominee.
Please return these nomination forms to me, via email, by June 30. I will forward them to Bob Little. Then he and his team will validate the nominations, carry out further research and then produce the Movers and Shakers’ List for Africa.
I am very grateful for your help with compiling this List of the Movers and Shakers for Workplace eLearning in Africa, which I believe will help highlight these people on the world stage of eLearning.
