CACI International, a federal contractor, delivers compliance training to 20,000 employees annually to meet federal, state, and company legal requirements. Until 2015, the course was little more than a glorified PowerPoint presentation and check-the-box activity, lacking employee engagement, ownership, and commitment. In late 2014, an L&D team set out to take the training from average (yawn) to awesome (right on)! This session walks attendees through that transformation.

This session will share the process of transforming average compliance training into training that increases content engagement, hits the mark with employees (relatable, interactive, fun), and results in fewer compliance violations and better business-making decisions at all levels. The session will explore and demonstrate instructional techniques used: scenarios, authentic examples, videos, comic strips, and gamification. Learn about the technology, software, and other tools the team used to produce a course that engaged learners and achieved learning objectives. You’ll discover how to replicate a dramatic change to your training and overcome obstacles such as a conservative culture, antiquated LMS, and tight budget constraints.

In this session, you will learn:

  • A process to transform training from “yawn” to “right on”
  • Instructional techniques that engage learners and achieve objectives
  • About tools and software that create engaging, interactive, and gamified eLearning
  • Strategies to overcome obstacles
