Our world has gotten much smaller over the years. For example,we can now take classes from anyplace at any time and on any device. But while technology has allowed us this freedom, along with it have come some challenges we didn't come across in the past...multicultural training. Join this interactive session and learn tips and tricks from the trenches to help you re purpose your training content and enhance your delivery to encourage retention and engage your learners from what ever culture they happen to be from. In this session you will learn about each cultural trait and how to avoid and prevent pitfalls that prevent learning to take place.
Good business decisions require good data, and that’s one of the areas that HR has historically struggled. Not that HR hasn’t provided reams of reports on performance distributions, compensation change percent and time to hire, but are those really the information needed to make better business decisions? With HR moving from tactical resource to strategic mover and shaker the time of status reporting is past. HR must be able to answer cause and effect questions that are more predictive than reactive. Industry experts will review the areas that must be improved to create HR metrics that can stand side-by-side with the numbers from Finance, Product Development and Sales.
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
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!
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.
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.
