VIRTUAL EVENT - Link in registration email
As learning professionals, we know we should evaluate our learning, yet too often we feel stuck. We don’t have the resources or permission to do full evaluation studies, so we do our best with traditional smile sheets—yet we know something is missing. Fortunately, a new proven methodology is available, performance-focused learner surveys. In this session, renowned learning and learning-evaluation expert Will Thalheimer will talk about the distinctive questioning approach used by leading organizations throughout the world. He’ll describe the approach and will take us on a journey on how to create much more effective learner surveys. Whether you’re a trainer, instructional designer, learning evaluator, or manager of learning; this session will provide you with practical insights you’ll want to use right away. And, as a bonus, Will has agreed to provide a copy of his award-winning book (Performance-Focused Learner Surveys
, 2nd Edition) to two people randomly chosen from those in attendance.
