ATD Competency areas: Instructional Design, Delivery, Coaching, and Business Skills
Being deeply curious is an essential part of our work as training and talent development professionals. In this session you will gain a deeper understanding of curiosity and how this human behavior can enhance your role as a talent development professional.
We will explore curiosity as a human behavior and a state-of-mind by reviewing current research, learning from today's thought leaders, and engaging in a dynamic discussion about the power of curiosity. We will also explore ways to recognize curiosity and how it impacts growth and development.
The session details the four components of curiosity through an interactive dialog for participants to gain a fresh perspective on openness, inquisitiveness, problem solving and distress tolerance. The full benefit of curiosity is achieved when we break it down into actionable parts and design a path to cultivate it within ourselves and ultimately within our teams and organizations.
Sadly, current trends are eroding our ability to stay curious. When harnessed, curiosity moves us forward in nearly every aspect of professional and personal life. Together, lets learn how to fully leverage curiosity to impact our ability to make better decisions, navigate challenging conversations, remain optimistic, drive personal growth, manage uncertainty, and improve learning and memory.

ATD Competency Model: Learning Technologies
The concept of “open-source” — that is, software for which the original “source” code is made freely available for others to add on, modify, and improve — radically changed the way software is developed, and has played a large part in enabling the technology boom we see around us today.
But the open-source idea isn’t just for software engineers. Some of the core ideas associated with open-source approaches can offer interesting new directions for L&D teams too.
As decentralization, openness, sharing, and collaboration become the new norm in many organizations, the idea that anyone can share their expertise broadly, and that individuals and teams can access and build on each other’s know-how perfectly encapsulates this concept of ‘open-source learning’ perfectly.
In this presentation, you will learn from the experiences of a technology company on applying the concepts of open-source software development to development of another kind – that of your staff.
a) fundamentals of “open-source learning”
b How these relate to knowledge sharing and learning within an organization
c) How to make open-source learning happen
d) The role of the L&D professional in driving an open-source learning culture

ATD Competency areas: Instructional Design and Performance Improvement
Did you know that within the first 48 hours of your employees attending a traditional training or learning event, their knowledge retention drops to 33 percent? Did you also know that research now shows that nearly 80 percent of learning in the workplace takes place informally? So why are training departments still spending the vast majority of their budgets on formal training efforts?
Everyday L&D is being pressured more and more to show an ROI, or Return on investment, for the dollars spent in “training”. Performance Support can help us move into the workflow and measure impact in ways training alone can never do. It also has a profound effect on training events, often reducing them by up to half the time needed, while making them even more impactful.
This session will introduce the methodologies behind Performance Support (learning while doing), and how it can help us have a different level of conversation with those we serve and help us influence the effectiveness of the business in remarkable ways!
In the session we will review answers to the following questions:

As a training professional, you fill learning gaps. You know training needs to be effective in the classroom, transferred to the job, and impactful to the organization. But how do you know when you’ve succeeded? You know smile sheets and attendance data aren’t enough, so how do you prove the real value of your training programs? Ultimately, it comes down to measurement...measuring the impact of your training program on your organization. For too long, the training industry struggled to show organizational impact. We’ve been convinced that training ROI can’t be captured. No more.
This event will provide an overview of how to determine organizational impact for every training program you design. Following the ROI by Design™ method presented in this event, you will learn:
Join us to take the mystery out of measurement and add understanding of the measurement to your professional practice.

One of the biggest challenges for learning professionals is showing how their learning programs contribute to business success. The Learning Evaluation Certification provides learning professionals with the knowledge and ability to make clear connections between their training design, behavior outcomes, and business results.
Quantifying learning outputs and measuring how learning leads to business outcomes is effectively being used in organizations today. This certification provides the latest methods being used by companies in a variety of industries such as healthcare, pharmaceutical, financial, manufacturing, and hospitality.
Identifying how learning programs transfer into changes in business performance and organizational metrics is a new skill requirement for trainers. The Learning Evaluation Certification is a one-day program that prepares learning professionals to design programs that can be measured, measure programs so they can be evaluated, and evaluate programs to show business outcomes.
It provides clarity on how to define the behavior results from training, measure the behavior, and connect behavior changes to the associated metric. This certification prepares you to identify points of failure, understand accountability for failure, and define the means to repair failure as learning progresses from the classroom, to the job, and ultimately to organizational results.
The Learning Evaluation Certification is a component of the ROI by Design program and provides you with an easy-to-follow chain of evidence linking training programs to business outcomes.
Participants will walk away with a complete picture of how to show learning impact. You will learn the simple steps necessary to create the impact chain of evidence including what type of data to collect, when/how the data is collected, interpretation of the data, and how to communicate the results to stakeholders.
