510 Introducing the CHAMPIONS Framework for Next Generation Learning and Performance

10:45 AM - 11:45 AM Thursday, June 11



The world of training and development has changed. Today’s technologies provide dozens of new affordances that can be used in learning and development that were simply not available in the days of training being done in classrooms with instructors and three-ring binders. But making sense of these new affordances, and the opportunities they provide, can be a challenge.

In this session you will examine these affordances in the context of nine high-level categories: Contextual, high-speed, ambient, mobile, personal, interactive, open, networked, and social. You will explore how these categories —the first letter of each forming the acronym CHAMPIONS—represent the expanded range of possibilities provided by today’s digital learning technologies. You will discuss how this framework can be used to leverage technology to improve worker performance and enhance your learning and development strategy for years to come.

In this session, you will learn:

  • About the CHAMPIONS framework
  • About digital technology affrodances
  • The implications of this framework for L&D
  • How to leverage this framework today

Intermediate and advanced managers, directors, and VPs.

Technology discussed in this session:
Advanced digital software and hardware platforms and techniques.
