106 Training the Whole Person: Biometrics for Learning

10:45 AM - 11:45 AM Wednesday, September 30



Training focuses on learning and performance improvement, but we typically only access the knowledge aspect of performance. What about emotion? To truly improve performance, training in context is essential and that includes training employees to leverage their knowledge and control their emotions.

In this session, you will explore the latest biometric technologies and how you can leverage them for learning and performance improvement. You will see examples in the entertainment and games industries, and look at how we can leverage these technologies for learning to expand our ability to not only train skills, but train performance within the content.

In this session, you will learn:

  • The potential for training the whole learner: knowledge, skills, and emotion
