    Learning Measurement SIG Presents:

    “ROI By Design – Measuring Learning with Design Analytics”

    with Laura Paramoure

    March 22, 2024

    2:00 PM to 3:15 PM

    VIRTUAL EVENT - Link in registration email

    Join us for an insightful session that tackles a challenge the learning profession has faced for over 50 years – measuring the impact of learning effectively. We've all clung to outdated methods like surveys, which have left us unable to demonstrate the real impact of our programs, ultimately damaging our reputation in the business world.

    But there's hope! How can we regain credibility and bring our learning department in line with other business units? How can we adjust our daily learning practice to absorb measurement? This session will dive into the ROI by Design measurement methodology, a powerful approach that infuses solid business principles into our learning practice. It's akin to Six-Sigma, using design and measurement techniques to continuously enhance program quality and prove the impact of learning.

    In this session, we'll:

    • Reveal how standardizing learning connects directly to improved business outcomes.
    • Explore how design data empowers quality control and provides insights to fix subpar programs.
    • Demonstrate how learning impact tools bridge the gap between learning design and business results, fostering data-driven decision-making.
    • Uncover the consistent learning metrics employed by learning leaders to showcase the impact of learning.
    • Examine the ways this methodology has elevated both the credibility and influence of Learning and Development.

    Don't miss this opportunity to learn how to revitalize your approach to learning measurement and boost your department's standing in the business world!

Increase the credibility and value of your learning and development programs through measurement and evaluation!

Why Start a Measurement SIG?

Measuring and evaluating the results of learning have long been key competencies for Learning and Development professionals, which enables us to demonstrate business value and continuously improve processes for enhancing performance and results. L&D leaders have more recently embraced the emerging field of “Learning Analytics” to increase their ability to track and increase effectiveness in a dynamic business environment, using the latest data sources and analytical tools.

While L&D Leaders often consider investing in Learning Analytics a high priority, they also are often limited in their abilities to gather, aggregate and analyze information. Frequently, these challenges lead to making decisions based on intuition rather than robust data and rigorous analysis.

The Greater Boston ATD Chapter has a significant opportunity to address this need and to add value to its members, their businesses and to the L&D field, by launching a Learning Analytics Special Interest Group.
