Data and Measurement

Narcissus/Orange Blossom

L&D professionals often search for detailed, credible learning measurement coupled with an engaging and highly effective learning experience—a pairing that can be achieved only by revisiting L&D’s approach to creating content. By embracing the adaptive learning methodology, while continuing to leverage the sound instructional design principles and emerging technological innovations that have helped you succeed in the past, you can achieve a new level of training sophistication, intelligently adapting the learning experience to each learner based on their actions, decisions, and abilities.

This session will explore what true adaptive learning is, how deep learning measurement contributes to this approach, and how to leverage this methodology to enhance training engagement and effectiveness within your organization. To go beyond theory and into application, you’ll dive deep on two advanced case studies that show how adaptive learning has successfully been used in healthcare and finance. You’ll also discuss the emerging role of the learning architect and the importance this role will have in the future.

In this session, you will learn:

  • What true adaptive learning is, including why it’s a crucial component in the next generation of training
  • About the principles of adaptive learning that create highly effective and cognitively engaging training content
  • How to avoid common pitfalls by identifying the keys to achieving deep learning data and avoiding the shortcomings in shallow measurement techniques
  • How to communicate the value of better training design to business stakeholders

Intermediate to advanced designers, developers, managers, directors, and senior leaders (VP, CLO, executive, etc.).

Technology discussed in this session:
Adaptive training development tools and big data technologies (including IBM Hadoop and various processing libraries).
