Organizational learning is always evolving, but it seems that we have reached a point in time when it is changing more rapidly that companies can keep up with. The changes are both dramatic and incremental, and coming from every direction. Simply changing what we do is not enough, we need to start changing who we are. Do today’s learning organizations and the people running them have the DNA to deliver the modern learning experience? In this session, David Wentworth looks at how the necessary skills, roles and responsibilities within the learning function are nearly unrecognizable from just a few years ago.

How to Effectively Build Bite-Size Learning in a Traditional Training World

Treion Muller
VP, Digital Learning Solutions – TwentyEighty

Since 1956 the world has known an essential truth about learning that it has chosen to largely ignore—that learners, regardless of how good the content or instructors, can only stay focused for less than 20 minutes. With new technologies, the Internet, and JIT mentality our attention spans are getting shorter. While traditional ILT remains the predominant form of training and development today, it is not due to user demand, and is already losing market share to newer, shorter delivery modalities. In this session we will practice what we preach and present three segments under 20 minutes to help you transform your existing long-form training content into engaging bite-size chunks.

Leader Maturity: The Key to a Leader’s Effectiveness

Keith M. Eigel, PhD

Because management skills aren’t enough—leader maturity is the liberating factor in a leader’s effectiveness. Come learn how to not only understand and measure your leaders’ developmental maturity, but how to accelerate it as well. When we grow technically competent leaders to higher levels of maturity we unleash their potential to lead others for greater organizational success.

The Right Learning Stuff: Are You Designing Courses or Learning Experiences?

Jennifer Hofmann
President – InSync Training

The modern learning landscape calls for modern blended learning design. We aren’t designing COURSES, we are designing EXPERIENCES that support the learner in all of their moments of learning need – not just when learning something new.

It doesn’t have to be rocket science! It takes a new approach to design; an approach that builds on fundamental instructional design approaches and takes the needs of modern learners and modern organizations into account.

Blended Learning Campaigns are designed to support the learner experience by delivering time-released lessons that are supported by activities and resources that continue to be relevant after the formal campaign is over. The campaign design considers appropriate instructional strategies, techniques, and technologies to identify the best approach to a learning.
