SEMT104 The Importance of Increasing Data Fluency Within L&D (And How To Do It)
1:15 PM - 2:00 PM Wednesday, October 23
Expo Hall: Emerging Tech Stage
Many of us would say that measuring the success of L&D is the hardest part of our job. And with new advances in learning technology, more data is available to us than ever before. But once you have this data, what do you do with it? How do you make sure what you're measuring is useful? How do you interpret it and present it so your audience cares? There is a whole new set of skills for your team to develop to be able to do this well. By spending time improving the data skills within your L&D team, you will become better partners to the business, make more informed decisions about your work, and open up high-impact, high-value conversations across your team.
In this session, you will learn how to identify the gaps in your L&D team's data fluency so that you can implement knowledge, skills, and environmental solutions to close them. I'll share some examples of resources we've created at HubSpot, content we've curated, and messaging we've provided across our department to be able to close this gap in our own organization. After you leave, you'll have what you need to create data-centric culture within your own team.
In this session, you will learn:
- The benefits of increasing data fluency for the L&D function
- How to identify current gaps in data fluency for your L&D team
- How to create the right culture for data fluency to thrive within the L&D team
- Examples of resources, content, and messaging to launch a data fluency initiative
- How to measure success of your data fluency initiative
