Performance-Focused Learning Evaluation

October 24 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm


Do you know they learned?
Do you know they took action based on what they learned?

We want to know what our training participants think about our training or trainer, and so we ask them to complete a survey at the end of a workshop or webinar. We ask what worked and what didn’t. On a scale of 1 to 5, how much did you learn? Hold on….

Join us as learner survey expert Will Thalheimer, PhD shares a research-based approach to learner evaluation. This encompasses how we survey learners, gather meaningful data, and report results with clarity. In this session, you will learn about the Learning Transfer Evaluation Model (LTEM) that can guide you to move your evaluation deeper into the realm of learning and learning transfer. As you know, it isn’t enough to measure attendance or how they liked the activities. We want to aim for what is different because of the learning. 

Building on the foundation of LTEM, you will learn about a research-approach to learner surveys. You will hear why the Likert scale isn’t effective and what to use instead. By the end of the session, you will have practiced how to use an evaluation framework that will help you and your organization strengthen your learning programs.
