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.

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.
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
In 2013, the landscape for enterprise learning solutions is incredibly fluid and fast-paced. The trends that are driving technology everywhere — data, mobile, cloud, social — also apply to learning.

In this webinar titled “Next Generation Learning”, Steve Parker, SPHR will highlight five ideas that your learning strategy must address, including:

Learning management systems (LMS) are designed to enroll learners into courses and learning events and track their progress. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Some systems have become so powerful and feature rich that they can be used to do much more, allowing you to use LMS technology to meet other business needs.
Join Richard Nantel. VP, Enterprise Learning Solutions at Blatant Media, for fast-paced, hands-on presentation. He won’t bore you with a bunch of slides. Instead, he’ll focus on hands-on demonstrations of ways a learning management system can improve your workplace processes and culture.

“Creating a high-performance culture” – as learning and talent management professionals, this is something we hear about often. But what is the best way to achieve this?
Through the alignment of learning and performance processes including cascading goals, linking personal goals to organizational goals, learning and talent management leaders can communicate required competencies and identify potential skill gaps. Learning priorities are then based on performance goals and from identified skill and competency gaps a personalized learning path can be created that provides tailored development linking back to performance goals.
Sound like talent management Nirvana? Not sure where to start? It’s more attainable than you think. Join us as we discuss how your people and your organization can benefit by connecting performance and learning to create a high-performance culture. During this webinar we will discuss how you can:
Connect learning and talent processes to tie learning to goals and performance
Leverage Talent Expansion technologies to cascade goals throughout the organization, provide contextual learning and give people the tools they need to be great at their jobs
Set and measure learning and talent management results with integrated analytics
