Bringing subject matter experts (SMEs) into the training room is one of the best things learning leaders can do. SMEs bring depth of experience, enterprise-wide perspective, and credibility to the process. Using SMEs is also risky. While they want to do well in the classroom, it is an environment outside their expertise. In this session, we'll explore the unique needs of SMEs and examine ways to design learning to help them be successful. This session was recorded at the ATD 2019 International Conference & EXPO, May 19 - 22, 2019 in Washington D.C.
