More updates on the ATD New England Area Conference in March! Now that it’s 2019, it’s time to reserve your spot at the premier learning and development event in the area. AXIOM will be there! This is one of our favorite events each year because we get to connect with so many of you! Don’t miss out!
ATD New England announced today…they have selected the closing keynote! Will Thalheimer, PhD, will present:
Innovations in Learning Evaluation:
Two Breakthroughs Primed to Change Everything
For decades, when we have been asked whether we are able to do the learning measurement we want to do, the vast majority of us say “No!” We also report that our organizations are holding us back and that we ourselves (as trainers, learning designers, and e-learning developers) don’t feel we have the skills we need to get the most out of learning evaluation. In short, in terms of learning evaluation, we feel stuck in a rut.
In this keynote, noted research-to-practice expert Will Thalheimer will share two learning-evaluation innovations that are changing the way evaluation gets done. He’ll share his experiences applying lessons from in his award-winning book, Performance-Focused Smile Sheets. He’ll also introduce us to a new learning evaluation model, LTEM (The Learning-Transfer Evaluation Model) that gives us and our organizations better data—so that we can maximize our learning outcomes. Learning evaluation is poised for radical change. This keynote will enable you to consider possibilities that have been hidden until now.
If you are looking to become more than just a participant, ATD is looking for volunteers for the event. You can give as little as 2 hours that will really make this show run smoothly. ATD is in need of people to help with assembly, greeting/hosting, registration, raffle prep, room monitors and more.
