ITE Journal - July 2021 - 27

The following is a look at the professional development offerings
from ITE and more information on how members are taking
advantage to enhance their careers and develop both their technical
and non-technical skills.
Learning Hub. ITE developed the Learning Hub as a one-stop
shop where members can manage all of their professional
development opportunities. The platform is a searchable engine
where you can choose a category on a topic you'd like to view or
type in a keyword, and any resources that are relevant and available
to register for will show up. This includes webinars (live and
on-demand), certificate programs, certification refresher courses
and practice exams, registration for partnership learning, and the
recent virtual Technical Conference and virtual Annual Meetings.
The ITE Learning Hub had 13,000 active users in 2020 (including
repeat attendees).
Most ITE professional development offerings provide continuing
education credits in the form of professional development hours
(PDHs). As part of the Learning Hub, ITE members have access
to a convenient way of tracking and managing their professional
development record-keeping.
Webinars. ITE's webinar program has experienced tremendous
growth during recent years, providing attendees with the
opportunity to hear directly from experts on topics of interest
to their careers. Speakers hail from a range of backgrounds and
include prominent leaders in the transportation field. More than
9,000 attendees participated in ITE's webinars in 2020 (including
repeat attendees), and approximately half of those webinars were
offered at no charge to ITE members. For 2021, 75 webinars have
been held or are scheduled to take place.
The Councils and Committees play a prominent role in fulfilling
the webinar program with increasing involvement for the past
three years. In 2019, there were 17 ITE Technical and Employer
Council-developed webinars. That number went up to 36 in 2020,
and for 2021, the number of Council-developed webinars stood at
60 as of publication time.
ITE has also successfully executed webinars through a number
of its technical contracts. Many of these contracts are from various
groups under the U.S Department of Transportation (USDOT).
Recently, ITE supported the Smart Columbus Webinar series,
working with smart communities grant recipient Smart Columbus
to deliver a 14-webinar series that provided insights and lessons
learned from their experience.
ITE webinars cover more than just technical topics. To educate
members on upcoming developments at ITE and new publications,
the professional development program also offers webinars
developed by ITE headquarters staff. In addition, practitioners
are offered the chance to develop their " soft skills " through
webinars focused on honing and improving traits like public
speaking, emotional intelligence, and more. For example, a 2020
series by Shelley Row, P.E., CSP (F) of Blue Fjord Leaders titled
" Communicating Technical Topics to Non-Technical Audiences "
taught participants how to 1) analyze their audience and design a
presentation that is laser-focused on their real issues; 2) practice
and develop proficiency in asking powerful questions designed to
connect to the audience; and 3) create powerful and memorable
presentations with stories that stick. Similarly, in 2019 Shelley
delivered the webinar series " Management Skills for Transportation
Professionals, " covering the topics of meeting management,
LeadershipITE: Developing Tomorrow's Leaders, Today
ITE prides itself on helping develop today's transportation professionals into tomorrow's leaders. As part of ITE's professional development offerings
and to help individuals build their leadership traits, the LeadershipITE program was launched in 2014. Since then, LeadershipITE scholars have been
empowered to rise up as industry leaders through group projects, networking, workshops, and more.
With the completion of the 2021 class, there have been 191 graduates of the LeadershipITE program since it began in 2014. This powerful network
helps set the direction for ITE, the profession, and our industry. Some examples of how our LeadershipITE scholars are making an impact:
* Leading ITE: International Board of Direction Members (past and present)
* Leading our Councils and Initiatives
* Leading our Committees including STEM, Women in ITE, and LeadershipITE
* Leading the industry: entrepreneurs, presidents, leaders of our
city agencies, DOT's, and federal agencies (FHWA)
* Countless leaders of ITE Districts and Sections
* Leading the future of the profession (at universities, working with students)
* Award winners: Young Leaders to Follow, Rising Stars, Young Member
of the Year winners
For 2021, the program was modified to a virtual format for COVID-19. In 2022, the
program will be a hybrid of both virtual and in-person formats, with two in-person
sessions and nine virtual sessions, allowing students to better balance their personal and professional lives.
Applications for the 2022 LeadershipITE Class are due September 15, 2021. For more information and to apply, visit www.ite.org/LITE.
