SMNX106 Driving Innovation in Your Training and Development Program
3:15 PM - 4:00 PM Wednesday, October 24
Expo Hall: Management Xchange Stage
What is innovation? How do you recognize it? Most importantly, how do you continuously innovate in your training design and pedagogy? Come find answers to these questions and more, and walk away with new ideas that will help you drive innovation in your training and development programs.
This session will help you see the difference between “what works” and “innovation” and understand how to move toward innovation. The evidence tells you what works—your creativity tells you what might work, but innovation creates the evidence of what actually does work.
In this session, you will learn:
- How to apply IDEAS pedagogy
- How to use thinking and creative tools
- How to include reflection in training and reward discovery
- How to use teams and project-based learning to foster innovation
Intermediate to advanced designers, managers, trainers, and others in L&D, HR, and staff development.
