Project Managers Are 'Glue' Holding Learning Projects Together

Caveo Learning

To achieve business stakeholder satisfaction with a completed learning & development initiative, learning project managers must aim for success in three key areas.

But the third item can be a little trickier—deftly manage the stakeholder relationship.

Bring Dry Training to Life with Characters, Conflict, and a Realistic Plot

Caveo Learning

Training content on onboarding information, product knowledge, or processes can be inherently dry and hard to deliver in an engaging manner. But dry or not, this content is important for employees to learn about their workplace, the processes they need to follow, regulations they need to comply with, and changes or initiatives happening throughout the company. It’s up to the training department to deliver this content properly.

Create Engaging Participant Guides

Caveo Learning

Participant guides can be valuable tools for maintaining learner engagement and reinforcing on-the-job performance when developed as part of instructor-led training. Unfortunately, many times the participant guide is created quickly, if at all, at the end of a project and only includes images of the slides from the presentation. You expect your facilitators to engage the learners, not just to read bullet points on slides.

Mining for Gold Among Learning Trends of Today and Tomorrow

Caveo Learning

A number of trends in learning & development are exciting and promising… but not all that glitters is learning gold. What's important is not necessarily that learning leaders jump on trends, but that they pay attention to them to assess whether or not their organization would benefit from them. Learning is getting more customized, more adaptive, and made available however and wherever—and budgets are not increasing at the same rate as expectations.

Plan to Make Review Cycles Part of Learning Project Success

Caveo Learning

The process that learning & development professionals follow when designing and developing learning deliverables helps all players on the project team complete their specified tasks. The review cycle stage—when the deliverables are examined by the stakeholder—is perhaps most critical. Before the learning project begins, it's crucial to determine when reviews will take place, what needs to be reviewed (and to what depth), how long reviews should take, etc.

Learning that Crosses Borders

Caveo Learning

Audiences are becoming more and more diverse. With varieties of native languages in the room, it is important to look at what is helpful as well as what may hinder or confuse when designing learning. You may be designing learning for a French-owned firm that needs to train English speakers. Or it may be a US-owned firm, with global customers and employees. It may be something specific like onboarding or selling skills in varying languages and with varying cultural references.

Don't Overlook the Value of Storytelling in Instructional Design

Caveo Learning

Storytelling captures and moves people, which is why it is such a powerful tool for instructional designers and other learning professionals. Great stories prompt action, change minds, and win business. Put simply, stories make people care about the issue at hand. To achieve their purpose, stories don’t need to be long and involved. Short scenarios can pull in learners and facilitate comprehension, helping them grasp and retain information , and prompting them to act.

Use Knowledge Retention Tactics for More Effective Training

Caveo Learning

Why do some learners seem to forget more than they remember? The reality is that the human brain is wired to forget—not all information is needed beyond the immediate moment or situation. It's up to instructional designers and training facilitators to help learners maximize knowledge retention. Memory is essentially the process of encoding (inputting), storage (organizing), and recall (accessing) of information, and there are tactics that can be used in deliverables to reinforce these functions.
