    How can you start integrating emerging technology into your learning initiatives?

    Could using chatbots help you reduce the struggle of creating sustained behavior change from your learning initiatives? 

    One-and-done approaches to learning typically fail, but one-on-one coaching post-event can really make the learning stick. Although ideal, it's not often realistic, as it's difficult to scale due to available resources and time constraints. Until now.

    Chatbots are an example of an emerging technology that can be used to deliver on and demonstrate the learning outcomes your organization needs and wants, at scale. No previous technical experience is required to gain benefit from this conversation.

    Through the power of Zoom, it is our great pleasure to bring you Emma Weber in Australia to share how she has fast-tracked her own learning in the field and what you can do to support your own learning.

    Through attending this session you will:

    • Challenge your assumptions of what’s possible with chatbots through insights from real client experiences.
    • Deepen your understanding of the powerful combination of chatbots and data analytics
    • Learn the top 5 reasons chatbot projects fail and how to avoid them.

    About your Facilitator

    Sydney-based learning transfer authority and CEO/Founder of Lever – Transfer of Learning, Emma Weber, has made it her mission in life to make a difference to learning transfer worldwide. Frustrated by the amount of great learning which is wasted when it fails to make it across the knowing–doing gap, Emma created the "Turning Learning into Action" methodology to solve that problem. 

    Driven to create impact through transfer, Lever now delivers "Turning Learning into Action" programs throughout 20 countries and in 12 languages. Emma's methodology is now also deployed by Coach M, an artificially intelligent chatbot who is challenging the industry's thinking of what’s possible in learning transfer.

    She shares her passion and expertise through her writing, "Turning Learning into Action: A Proven Methodology for Effective Transfer of Learning,'" and "Making Change Work: How to create behavioral change in organizations to drive impact and ROI", co-authored with Jack and Patti Phillips of the ROI Institute, both published by Kogan Page.

    According to a recent ATD research study, 80% of 

    organizations evaluate some learning programs at Level 2 of the five-level measurement and evaluation model. Yet only 63% of organizations view the data they collect to be of high or very high value. While these numbers indicate a significant disconnect, there is a solution. If appropriately constructed and worded correctly, Level 2 evaluations can prove whether learning occurred. They also can provide important insight into which program topics participants mastered and which ones they did not. But these insights are only as useful as the quality of the test questions.  

    In this informative, highly engaging webinar you will learn practical tips and guidelines on how to write Level 2 test questions that produce valued data. Particular emphasis will also focus on writing test questions that measure job application and not the mere recall of facts. 

    In this webinar, you will:

    • Examine Level 2 evaluation facts that serve as benchmark data  
    • Discover fifteen tips for creating valid, scientifically sound multiple-choice test questions
    • Examine the difference between test questions that measure application versus those that measure recall
    .
