The Challenge
Redesigning technical training is a mandate for many companies. Where does the redesign start? How do we create alignment?  Where does accountability for change and learning occur?  What are our lenses? How do we value our adult learners regardless of background? How do we create learning experiences that lead to performance?

The Opportunity
A free, brown bag discussion will engage the experience of industry and academic professionals regarding transforming technical training to achieve strategic results.  Please come prepared to share your experience, ask questions, and extend your learning.

 The agenda:
  • Welcome
  • Panel discussion highlighting strategic models, templates, and research
  • Round table discussion:
    • Personal observations
    • Your organizations' activities towards transforming technical training
  • What help/support would be useful?
