Convert Your Instructor Led Training to E-Learning
Sometimes participants just can't make it to the classroom. The content is there, the class is amazing - but the time, location, or budget constraints are getting in your way. In this session, members will learn about things to consider when making the leap from amazing instructor-led training to awesome e-learning.
Carla Sensing is an Instructional Designer with Nevada State Bank. She has 21-years of elementary education experience, 3-years of Instructional Design experience, and 3-years of corporate training experience. With this combined experience she has learned the ins and outs of converting classroom material into online e-Learning and the best practices as to when it should be done. There is no one right answer when it comes to converting a class, and may components play into the best way to convert a class. Carla is going to share with us the thought processes that she uses when converting face-to-face classes into online learning, blended learning, computer-based training and when to leave a class well enough alone.

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!

Come to this session to learn how to make your evaluations more effective.
