Renie McClay, Senior Project Manager at Caveo, is presenting at the Association for Talent Development Kansas City Chapter's (ATDKC) Fall Conference 2018, on September 27 in Overland Park, KS. This annual conference is the area's largest talent development event, bringing the latest in trends and tools for engaging learners. Talent development practitioners from all around the greater Kansas City area will be in attendance at the Johnson County Community College.
This year's ATDKC Fall Conference theme is Get A Clue, and is intended to help broaden and deepen awareness of how to ask the right questions, targeting instructional designers, training practitioners, and learning consultants.
Acting within the conference theme, McClay's session is titled Defining Learning Solutions within the Organization Budget.
Your client has a budget and wants to make the most of it. They tell you what they want, but it is too much for the timeline. Once solutions are defined, more questions are needed to uncover possible obstacles in meeting deadlines in the future, like working with solid versus fluid content to reduce edit cycles. This session is filled with tips for learning leaders wanting to recommend the right learning solutions to address the critical needs for the client. The audience will help to recommend solutions within small group discussions, and discover the right questions to uncover creative solutions that will match the budget and be reasonable for the timeline. Experience actual case study examples and the solutions created to meet those client needs. Session is geared toward internal as well as contractor learning leaders.
Other learning sessions at the conference with improve questioning skills in:
- employee engagement & rollouts
- copyright & intellectual property
- leadership & coaching
- virtual instructor-led training
- learning solutions that meet budget
- needs assessment for courses
