Organizations invest time, money and effort in e-learning solutions only to discover that employees don't use them or value and retain the content. Providing highly accessible, learner controlled, media rich content can inspire employees to want to learn, and help companies realize the return on their learning investments through greater adoption, improved productivity and increased skills and results.
"Stop Training. Start Learning" will challenge the status quo of standardized learning practices and introduce a new normal that sets the standard for more effective, individualized learning. During this complimentary hour-long educational session, John Robertson, director of Learning and Development at lynda.com, will help HR, learning and development practitioners identify and understand the reasons that many e-learning implementations fail. Attendees will learn how technology that's transforming learning in academia is changing the way individuals learn across all age groups and backgrounds in the professional world.
As the director of Learning and Development at lynda.com, one of the pioneering companies in online education, Robertson oversees new hire and professional development training for internal employees. He will draw on more than 15 years of leadership experience at technology and SaaS organizations, with emphasis on training, coaching and organizational development, to help participants discover e-learning content that their company's learners truly want.
"Stop Training. Start Learning" is designed for professionals in learning and development, human resources and training, talent management and anyone responsible for improving performance within an organization.
