Triumph Group had a strategic initiative to transform their company into a learning organization but had to overcome the challenges of providing training that sticks without disrupting production. Through a blended learning initiative, Triumph University launched several Skillsoft assets to complement their live training experiences and extend learning beyond the classroom. As a solution, Triumph University launched its new Certificate Program Model in April 2012 featuring Skillport and an elearning catalog. This strategy has increased the expectation for growth and transformed the way employees learn all across the globe. Session attendees will understand the rationale for this pilot and how value can be justified in their own organizations.
Building a business case for your new learning or talent management system is not just about selling needs and benefits to your finance department. It's about identifying your business processes and company requirements then translating that into a functional document that guides your decision process from new system selection, implementation and ongoing operations.

Gamification is one of the hottest trends in learning and development. Is it just a buzzword or a trend as one leading expert argues, or does it offer richer, more interactive, and more effective ways to develop people? Decide for yourself after attending this session. Dr. Robert Becker will cover the why, when and how of gamification, focusing on the transformation of traditional or legacy courseware into more engaging game-based learning. You will not learn how to design video games in this session, but you will learn how to gamify your instructional design if the gamification of training is right for you.
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.
Did you know that within the first 48 hours of your employees attending a traditional training or learning event, their knowledge retention drops to 33 percent? Did you also know that research now shows that nearly 80 percent of learning in the workplace takes place informally? 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!
The Millennial generation learners are rapidly growing in numbers and forcing significant organizational change. They are impatient, unimpressed with hierarchy, and want to be heard. They have grown up with Google, and are accustomed to “instant gratification.” Consequently, it is critical to evolve our learning platforms to meet their learning needs as they become an increasingly important part of our workforce. Are you really ready for them? Are your learning platforms designed to serve them? This session will outline:
The essential expectations of this new generation of learners
How we must evolve our training approach to address this change
What learning functionality addresses their needs and expectation
How phrases like data analytics, contextual information, and adaptive outreach become just as important to the learning community as they've become to marketing and sales
How business performance is redefined and learning's role is re-evaluated
Mobile devices offer an enticing array of opportunities for learning and development, so it seems like a "no-brainer" for training departments to add mLearning.
But there are four key mLearning issues that should be taken into consideration before just jumping into mLearning:
All four of these can have a critical impact on the potential success of any plan to add mLearning to an organization’s overall training and development program.
Learn how these issues can serve as a framework for analysis/information gathering to shape your organization’s planning stages for mLearning, and even help identify prime opportunities to implement mLearning to make a true difference for your organization.
