Creating Your Own Recipe: How to Build Your Own Training Activities and Games
Interactive sessions and not just fun and engaging - they are memorable and they help drive the point home. Smart trainers know that games and activities involve adult learners like no other instructional method can. But - how does one go about designing their own activities?
In this HANDS ON session, you will learn how the best learning professionals:
E-Learning Cook-Off: Which Platform Works for Me?
In this session, we will have a panelist of learning professionals. They will be provided with content and each will build a course in their preferred software. They will then demonstrate how to build a few pieces of the same course in REAL TIME using - Lectora, Articulate, and Captivate learning software.
Participants will have time to ask questions, compare notes, and see which platform may work best for them! At the end, you will have the opportunity to vote on your favorite design.
Measuring Learning: How to Gather the Ingredients
Most learning professionals are aware of the four levels of learning as first introduced by Donald Kirkpatrick in 1959 in a series of articles called "Techniques for Evaluating Training Programs." published in the journal of American Society for Training and Development.
If you are unfamiliar with the four levels, they are:
Level 1: Reaction
Level 2: Learning
Level 3: Behavior
Level 4: Results.
Each of these four levels are important ingredients to the learning recipe - and yet they are often difficult to obtain.
In this session, participants will learn not just about the four levels, but also how to set yourself up for success in achieving them!
Creating Evaluations: "The Taste Test"
In the November session, we learned about the four levels of evaluation and how to measure learning, but have your discovered that your surveys and tests aren't giving you the information that you need?
Do you struggle with selecting the right type of questions to use when assessing learning? Do you know when to use a performance test, recall test, or a recognition test? Do you worry about the validity of your test questions?
Do you know whether to select a matching question, fill in the blank, multiple choice item, short answer, or open-ended essay question?
Come to this session to learn how to make your evaluations more effective.
