Before and After: Making a Difference With Pre- and Post-Event Learning Activities

TechKnowledge 2015 Session: W206
Chris Van Wingerden | January 14, 2015 | Video

Have you ever tested spaghetti to see if it's cooked by throwing it against a wall? That's how too many organizations now approach their training programs—throwing standalone e-learning or face-to-face courses at their staff and hoping the learning will stick. But no course is an island, and there are things we can do to increase the odds of making learning stick by augmenting standalone courses. Pre- and post-event activities have been proven to make a dramatic difference in learning transfer rates. Many of these strategies are easy to implement and are very suited to m-learning approaches, giving us a whole new set of tools to improve the effectiveness of learning events. In this session we will provide an overview of what pre- and post-event learning transfer activities are, and review what the research tells us about their effectiveness. We'll also discuss strategies for including these in the planning and design of your learning programs, as well as focus on techniques to take advantage of mobile devices for delivering many of these activities.

Rethinking Five Leader Beliefs That Erode Workplace Motivation

ATD 2014: Session W306
Susan Fowler | May 07, 2014 | Video

This session challenges the traditional beliefs about motivation that are so embedded in our collective psyche that we can collectively fill-in-the-blank on statements such as: ? It's not personal, it is just _______. ? The purpose of business is to ____ ______. ? We need to hold people _________. ? The only thing that really matters is ______. ? If you cannot measure it, it ______ ______.  These traditional beliefs set leader behaviors in motion that undermine people's basic psychological needs—and result in low-quality motivation. You are encouraged to challenge outdated beliefs about motivation and consider how more optimal beliefs cultivate an environment where people experience enhanced well-being, sustained performance, and long-term results. You will be asked to complete alternative belief statements, such as: ? If it is business, it is _____. ? The only reason business exists is to ____. ? People live up (or down) to our _______. ? In the end, what really matters is not just results, but how those results __ _____. ? If you cannot measure it, it is probably ___ ___.  The speaker builds a case for replacing obsolete beliefs with more highly developed values that promote leadership behaviors proven to nurture an optimally motivating work environment.
