This GL&D meeting tackles the ever-thorny issue of measuring return on investment and evaluation of training. As L&D professionals how can we demonstrate that our interventions are delivering the outcomes required? How is learning evaluated? How can return on investment be evidenced?
We are delighted that two GL&D ‘regulars' will be presenting their ideas on this subject, sharing what they have learnt about evaluation from years of experience in L&D related roles and leading discussions on methods they use to evaluate & evidence the impact of L&D interventions.
Alison Simmons, Site Compliance Training Process Owner for Lucozade Ribena Suntory, will be leading discussions based on work she has undertaken at the Lucozade and Ribena factory in Coleford, Forest of Dean, where she has been carrying out post-training evaluations to determine whether learning interventions were fit for purpose (ie delivered into the business what they were intended to deliver) and, if not, what the obstacles were and how to deal with them. Alison will discuss the trials and tribulations of the post -training evaluation process as well as the outcomes.
Gerald Crittle of G Acceleration has a wealth of knowledge on how to use freely available technologies to increase engagement and check understanding during a learning session. He will be demonstrating different tools and encouraging GL&D members to try out new methods for measuring the progress a learner is making during a learning process. If you have a smartphone, tablet or iPad please bring it to the session.
