The inaugural issue of T+D Korea will make its debut next Jan.
The Korean Standards Association (KSA) has signed a deal with the American Society for Training & Development (ASTD) to exclusively publish the Korean version of ASTD’s monthly, T+D Magazine, which will make its debut next January.
T+D Magazine is a monthly of human resources development with a circulation of about 50,000 readers across the globe, including those from global companies, educational institutions and HRD experts. ASTD’s publications are noted for leading the field with content that advances new thinking, highlights proven practices, and raises awareness of the value of learning and performance. T+D magazine has heralded and even led the evolution of the profession from training and development to workplace learning and performance with the purpose to deliver to its readers the emerging trends and proven best practices. Indeed, since its debut in 1947 as the Journal for Industrial Training, what is now called T+D magazine has chronicled the issues and ideas, the pains and passions of a growing profession.
KSA Chairman Kim Chang-ryong said, “With KSA’s publishing T+D Korea, Korean industry circles are given chances to take a loot at more advanced levels of global HRD trends, personnel and educational knowledge, and we hope it will establish itself as a magazine contributing to the development of helping Korean companies nurture global manpower.”
ASTD Chairman Tony Bingham visited Korea on Nov. 13 and participated in the signing ceremony in which he expressed the greeting of the successful launch of the Korean version and furthering future partnership between ASTD and KSA.
ASTD is known well as the organization of International Conference & Exhibition (ICE), the world’s biggest HRD conference. The next ASTD Ice is to be held in Dallas, Tex. in May 2013.
