8:00 AM - 8:45 AM Thursday, July 28
In this session The Learning Guild’s director of research, Jane Bozarth, offers quick overviews of some recent Guild research. Topics covered are the value of investing in robust train-the-trainer efforts, beyond how to work technology while delivering scripted content and a review of ideas and emerging technologies important to leaders working to stay current and help guide others into the future. Along the way Jane will be joined by Insync Training’s Charles Dye, whose dissertation was featured in our report on learner engagement and instructional outcomes.
