Coaching with Lois Douglass-Alston
Virtual and augmented reality are here. Two billion phones have been turned into a magic lens that can arm your field organization with superpowers. Full-body VR offers a digital rehearsal space of such convincing verisimilitude that trainees feel they are actually there. Meanwhile mobile gaming is used to reinforce new skills and concept while having fun. Join us for a session packed with demos case studies on how to unlock business value of virtual and augmented reality, game and simulation-based learning. Watch how enterprise leaders are using virtual reality is a “flight simulator” for any technical task that’s too dangerous, expensive, or inconvenient to practice in real life. Learn why VR is also hailed as the “ultimate empathy machine” for any soft skill training like customer service and coaching. See how they are leveraging mobile learning games that challenge players to level up through increasingly complex real-world tasks and offer feedback and recognition along the way.
Packed with demos and cases, you’ll see:

Using virtual reality as a way to deliver training with Dr. Donna Petherbridge and Mike Cuales
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:
· How to develop measurable training programs and quantifying their effectiveness
· The way to incorporate business goals in your design to align with stakeholders
· How to show the before, during, and after progress from all learning programs
· The way to translate the language of training into the language of business
· The ways companies today are proving the value of their training team
And FINALLY, how a real ROI for your training program is created.
Join us to take the mystery out of measurement and add understanding of the measurement to your professional practice.
