Flipped learning—courseware and recorded content serving as the initial element of a learning experience, with live virtual sessions and social and collaborative tools supplementing and enhancing the learning experience—has the potential to increase learning effectiveness, lower operational costs, and get better retention and more effective application of the learning. The model has created tremendous buzz in the education community, but is it viable for business learning? We believe that effective use of the flipped learning model can transform business learning, improve learning outcomes, and reduce operational costs. Participants in this session will examine the flipped classroom model, learn how to build one, and hear case studies of businesses that are now delivering in this new model.

So why are training departments still spending the vast majority of their budgets on formal training efforts? Informal Learning has become all the rage over the past 5 years in the Learning and Development industry. As we’ve taken a closer look at this powerful discipline we’ve learned that Informal learning can actually be “formalized”, tracked, measured, and implemented through Performance Support. This session will address the methodologies behind designing, implementing, and maintaining effective Performance Support (learning while doing), and how it is now, more than ever, all around us!
