Evaluating Training Program Success
Morning Session (8:30am - 12:00pm)

This session provides a framework for evaluating training, including return on investment and making a case for leadership support. You will learn what can and should be measured and how to create a meaningful set of metrics for your organization.

eLearning 101: From Goal to Execution
E-Learning is fast becoming a staple in developing employees. Whether programs are blended, flipped, or solely online, 77% of US companies offered online corporate training to their employees in 2015, and this number is expected to increase 13% per year through 2017. That means knowing when to include eLearning in your talent development programs, as well as the ability to create, implement, and track learner behaviors from the finished product are essential for today’s Talent Development Professional.
In this one-day, hands-on workshop, attendees will be given a typical development request in which they will uncover the expected outcomes of the program, and use eLearning design and implementation best practices to create a short eLearning product.
