"Collaboratory provides the only hands-on experience for team members to determine their collaborative needs and drive successful outcomes in team performance,” says David Coleman.
Corona, CA (PRWEB) July 19, 2011
Elearning! Media Group, the exclusive industry trade brand serving the enterprise learning market, will be hosting its annual Enterprise Learning! Conference & Expo (ELCE) on September 27-29, 2011 in Anaheim, Calif., where six in-depth workshops will tackle learning’s hot topics of social, mobile and collaboration. Attendees will learn from six industry experts who are transforming enterprise learning, sharpen their skills and walk away with an immediate action plan.
The Collaboratory — one of the more unique workshops at the event — will be hosted by Dave Coleman, founder and managing director of Collaborative Strategies. This program has been successfully delivered at General Dynamics, HP and many top organizations. This interactive lab will feature a catastrophic scenario for team members to solve. The Collaboratory creates an environment that combines team dynamics with technology to help find out what collaboration tools and features work best for them. Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in person, assuming an active role, in person and observe; or attend virtually with or without a role.
"Collaboratory provides the only hands-on experience for team members to determine their collaborative needs and drive successful outcomes in team performance,” says David Coleman. ”This is done through a simulation and role-playing exercise that is not only fun and educational but unique in the industry."
How to Buy the Right Learning System Workshop will be hosted by Joe DiDonato, Elearning! magazine’s editor-at-large. Changes in business objectives and the growing demand for more flexibility and dissatisfaction with current system are driving approximately 40% of current Learning Management System owners, as well as many new users, to buy a new LMS over the next 12 months. At this workshop, attendees will be given the tools, guide and advice to succeed at their next LMS purchase.
Training and learning professionals are wondering how to select the vendor who is the best fit for their enterprise. “That is really the million dollar question,” says DiDonato. “At the LMS workshop, we are going to show them how to create RFI’s and RFP’s, justify the system, and ultimately pick the right vendor, using pretty scientific techniques that are easy to use once they know what their requirement set is.”
Let’s Get Real about Measurement Workshop: Bob Danna, executive vice president of Bersin and Associates, will review the current state of learning measurement.
“Business leaders today face a huge challenge: how to turn human capital or people data into actions that produce positive outcomes,” says Danna. “Real measurement provides actionable information to decision makers. Through our research-based measurement workshop, learning leaders actively grapple with how to best measure the results of their training and development efforts, and how to present this actionable information to decision-makers.”
Mobile learning is being adopted by 68% of enterprises. Dr. Gary Woodhill, CEO of i5Research and author of The Mobile Learning Edge, will be taking participants through a flow chart of all the decisions that have to be made and tasks that have to be carried out, implementing a mobile learning project at the workshop titled “Mobile Learning Strategy.” This interactive working session will teach attendees how to implement and develop the right mobile learning strategy within their enterprise.
Best Practices of Virtual Learning Workshop will be hosted by Jaqueline Beck, vice president of Brookwood, who will teach trainers, managers and other professionals how to lead, manage and train effectively when using virtual technologies. In this workshop, attendees will be introduced to the best practices of hosting virtual learning and leading practices.
Social Media for Learning Workshop is hosted by Michelle Lentz, principal of Write-Technology and former vice president of technology for Greater Cincinnati ASTD. This interactive workshop will leave attendees with confidence to apply and integrate social media tactics to encourage collaborative and social learning within their customers and personnel.
