    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.

    In this session, you will learn how industry leaders like Walmart, KPMG, and DaVita are ushering in a new era of experiential and visceral learning with immersive learning and gaming.

    Packed with demos and cases, you’ll see:

    • How repeated movements in virtual and augmented reality causes changes in brain structure, which in turn improve performance in the real world
    • How to teach cyber security in a tower-defense game format, customer service in virtual reality, and product demonstrations with augmented reality.
    • How learning games thrive on a sense of engagement, storytelling, character identification, immersion, level progression, problem solving, and accomplishment.
    • How to make the business case for virtual and augmented reality learning, games and simulations.
    Leave the glowing desktop screen and classroom behind and step into a new world of immersive learning, tailored for a generation of learners who have spent more time with video games than in school. 


    Anders Gronstedt,  Ph.D. – President of The Gronstedt Group, is an author, public speaker and entrepreneur. He is an advocate of using Next-Gen Learning tools to advance real-world skills through virtual and augmented reality training, game and simulation-based learning. The Gronstedt Group has been instrumental in helping global companies like Walmart, KPMG, Google, HP, DaVita, and Kimberly-Clark and government clients like the Department of Transportation and the City of New York improve performance with innovative learning approaches. Anders is a former faculty member of the University of Colorado–Boulder School and his articles have appeared in the Harvard Business Review.

    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.

Her private sector experience includes Director of Training and Development with Parata systems where she was responsible for the establishment and deployment of both domestic and international training.  She is currently the CEO of eParamus, a company which helps organizations of all types and sizes optimize and verify the impact of their training programs.

    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. 

    Learning objectives for this event:

    1. To learn how standardized learning design enables the ability to measure learning outcomes and show how programs impact the learner, the job, and the organization.

    2. To realize when to measure learning, what to measure and how to interpret results from learning measurement.

    3. To understand how a measurement methodology highlights accountability for learning success across the organization and creates learning organizations.

    4. To witness learning measurement data currently being generated and used for data driven decision making in organizations.
