The American Society for Training and Development has ceased to exist. In 1947, it came to life as the American Society of Training Directors. That left out lower-level trainers so development replaced directors in a name change and the doors were opened to everyone in the training business. Vendors of packaged training courses filled ASTD’s exhibit halls.

Review of ASTD International Trade Expo

With great anticipation I entered the huge expo at ASTD International show earlier this week. In the past this show has been heavily geared to instructor led training in the corporate space. If you think they used the ASTD app and wrote down some notes, I think you would be surprised. would love to see a survey from ASTD sent one week after the show to attendees asking them what vendors they visited online with specific requirements that they did so, without visiting the ASTD app, ASTD online site showing the exhibitors and their web sites and the heavy book.

Welcome one and all to the wrap up of the ASTD international conference and expo. It was an exciting first day, with lots of vendors hitting the entire training spectrum. Ideal for sales training and point of sales. Why hasn’t ASTD figured out how to do things right. Once again, ASTD dropped the ball. Apparently there must be a huge demand for scalping ASTD badges or hood winking ASTD for access into their show. If I could give ASTD a grade it would be a massive F.

Stop Evaluating Training!

Upside Learning

Proving the effectiveness of training and showing ROI is no walk in the park and still keeps L&D up at night. Kirkpatrick’s evaluation model has long been the holy grail of training effectiveness measurement to businesses. The key message from his talk was to Stop Evaluating Training the way we currently tend to. The rest is ‘unrealized value’ of training.

It’s the yearly review of the ASTD International Conference and Expo. Well, this year’s show had all the fun and excitement you can expect in the biggest training conference event of the year. First off, this part is going to sound like I’m bashing ASTD, and perhaps to a degree I am. It is not like this is the first go around for our beloved association in having a conference and trade show.  If you were a volunteer to ASTD, this is not about you – it is solely about ASTD. ASTD bags – always nice. EXTRA! EXTRA! Pluses.

Why Blended Learning Is Really Just Blended Training

Mindflash

Blended learning is a hot phrase in the training world, and it usually refers to a mixing of traditional face-to-face classroom facilitation with computer-based modules — usually self-paced online training. Blended learning extends training beyond a single “event.”. 2. Blended learning saves money by reducing the travel and work-stoppage costs of classroom training.

What Will Corporate Learners Remember from your Training?

Bottom-Line Performance

Here is Part 1: How confident are you that learners really remember what they learn from training delivered in your organization? Sometimes the goal of training is not about changing learners’ knowledge or skill. Instead the goal is to verify that learners completed the training. In these instances, you may equate course completion with “ef- fective training.”

Still Too Much Reliance on Instructor-Led, Event-Based Employee Training

The Peformance Improvement

Although classroom-based training has declined over the past few years and some of the instructor-led training is done electronically (i.e.,
