    Description:

    The role of a Producer in Virtual Training can not be understated, yet many facilitators have not utilized one in their classes. Producers provide a level of support that allows facilitators to focus on their participants and avoid the distractions connected to the technology.

    In this session, we will discuss how to effectively integrate a producer into virtual delivery in a way that’s right for your platform, delivery and organisation. It will be an interactive session, so lots of time for questions and discussions and perhaps even some breakout discussions. We welcome you to be webcam ready, for part or all of the session as you wish.

    Objectives:

    1. Define the role of the type of producer that’s right for you.
    2. How the producer can work efficiently.
    3. Discussions of how you can apply this learning.

    Description:

    How do you measure the impact of learning? Are your training and learning programs designed for results? Is there a way to evaluate the effectiveness of your training and learning programs?

    Training teams and learning organizations around the globe are increasingly asked to produce evidence for impact. In this session, we’ll discover how to use facts, clues, evidence, and data to answer the question, “What is the impact of training and learning?” We’ll also discover how to plan for impact in the beginning so it’s easier to measure in the end.

    Measuring the impact of training and learning can be a mystery but it doesn’t have to be. The L&D detective, Kevin M. Yates, will show you how to:

    • Proactively plan for impact by aligning training and learning with business goals.
    • Target your training programs and learning solutions with specific performance outcomes for achieving business goals.
    • Create an impact blueprint for direction on how to impact business goals and employee performance.
    • Use instructional design techniques that drive impact.
    • Gather facts, clues, evidence, and data that show how training and learning impacts business goals and employee performance.

    Measuring impact may not be easy but it is possible. We’ll examine what makes measuring impact possible so that you too can be an L&D detective!
