Information and Registration

Please join your ATD chapter leaders for this Association for Talent Development International Conference & Exposition preview webinar highlighting the newest innovation around instructional design, learning technologies and the true value of learning metrics. 

The holy grail of corporate training is achieving detailed and credible learning measurement, coupled with an engaging and highly effective learning experience. In order to achieve this, you need to revisit your approach to creating content. Adaptive learning uses sound instructional design principles, coupled with emerging technological innovations, to achieve a new level of training sophistication.

Adaptive learning is a methodology that intelligently adapts the learning experience to each individual learner, based on the learner's actions, decisions, abilities, and even other external factors. The result is more engaging, effective, and efficient training and reduced cost through a decrease in time for training for the organization. More important, the dynamic branching nature highlights the critical differences between learners, achieving deep data and enabling truly informed business decision making.

This session will explain true adaptive learning and how to leverage this methodology to optimize your training engagement, effectiveness, and deep learning measurement within your organization. The speaker will discuss two advanced case studies that utilize adaptive learning in healthcare and finance.

He will also discuss the emerging role of the learning architect and the importance this role will have in the future. This is a session for anyone with an interest in the future of learning design.
