503 Architecting for Results
10:45 AM - 11:45 AM Wednesday, March 28
The mantra these days is to increase learner engagement, because if learners aren’t engaged, then they’re not learning, right? So learning designers have spent a lot of energy adding bells and whistles—anything to increase engagement. But while learners seem to like all this engagement, is L&D actually seeing any measurable results? According to CEB/Gartner, traditional training only creates 37 percent learning transfer back to the workplace. That’s a problem!
This session will explore current trends in learning and how, in spite of all the effort to improve engagement, the results still come up short. You’ll take a look at what research says about the keys to achieving learning transfer and performance improvement. Finally, you’ll learn about concrete steps you can take to improve learning transfer and review three case studies to see those steps in practice.
In this session, you will learn:
- What current research shows about learning transfer
- What steps you can take to improve learning transfer
- Ideas and inspiration to improve your own learning solutions and outcomes
Novice to advanced designers, managers, directors, and senior leaders (VP, CLO, executive, etc.).
Technology discussed in this session:
Fairly technology-agnostic; the focus will be more on design and approach than specific tech. That said, there will be examples using Totara, Adapt, Storyline, and other tools.
