    Technology is evolving the way people learn and the way they work.

    You’re invited to embrace this change at an experience that meets you at your level and shows you the path forward. Whether you’re looking for new ways to use the technology you have or different solutions to achieve better results, the all-new TK will deliver.

    We’ve redesigned it to provide education in various formats, creating an immersive experience with you in the driver’s seat. You’ll have the opportunity to choose how you learn best, whether from traditional lecture-style sessions, hands-on instruction, or experimentation and co-creation with your peers.

    At TK, you will not be a passive attendee. You will be an active participant, sharing your knowledge and experience and making meaningful connections. Each day will build upon the previous, so that you’ll walk away with practical solutions you can implement immediately, not just a bunch of notes. You won’t find a traditional expo here either. You’ll have the option to meet with suppliers on your terms and to explore, in depth, the choices that make the most sense for your work. Join us as we embark on a learning experience unlike any other at the all-new TechKnowledge.

    How do you establish the “right” learning strategy in today’s Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, and Ambiguous (VUCA) organization? What are learning leaders looking for from their teams, their learners and their vendor partners that will help build sustainable impact on their businesses?

    Every organization and industry has unique characteristics that inform the strategy behind their learning and development efforts. At Panera, these characteristics include:

    • Moving from a public, founder-led company to a privately held corporation
    • An industry that celebrates when turnover is below 100% annually
    •  A massively distributed, deskless hourly workforce (140k and growing)
    •  Significant churn of senior executives (3 CEOs in 18 months)
    • Brand threatening external crisis ranging from eColi to data security breaches…
    • And an unwavering commitment to become a disruptive force for good through our food
    • This discussion will pull the curtain back on how learning strategy is really made and help you think through what you can do to help the modern learning function succeed.

    Key Takeaways:

    • What factors learning leaders consider when building a strategy
    • Investigative methods to help ensure leadership buy-in for training initiatives
    • What the learning team should be thinking and doing to maximize their contributions and grow their own careers
    • How leaders see the role of vendor partners in delivering value through the learning function
    • A look at some of the training methods and techniques Panera uses to address the challenges of their industry

    Is There a Dark Side to Emotional Intelligence?   

    The notion that people smarts might help you succeed got a boost a quarter century ago when the phrase "emotional intelligence" entered the mainstream.

    There's a catch though:  Other researchers have recently examined what they call "the dark side" of EI, and their findings suggest an unnerving link between understanding people and using them.

    Join your colleagues as we take a multi-dimensional look at emotional intelligence and its applications.  Our discussion will be inspired by an articles from Forbes and Business Insider.

    Five interesting facts about diversity*:

    1. Ethnically diverse companies are 35% more likely to outperform other companies...

      Yet studies show that resumes submitted with with non-white sounding names are less likely to get a callback.

    2. Gender diverse companies are 15% more likely to outperform the average company...

      Yet there are fewer Fortune 500 CEOs who are women (4.1%) than those named David (4.5%) or John (5.3%). Two single male names outnumber an entire gender!

    3. Diverse companies bring in more revenue...

      Actually, 15 times more sales revenue than companies with the lowest levels of diversity.

    4. 83% of millennials are more engaged at work when they believe their company fosters an inclusive culture.

    5. Diversity fosters more creativity and innovation in the workplace...

       When people with different skill sets, backgrounds, and experiences are brought together in one workspace, it leads to more effective problem-solving. Similarly, diversity breeds more creative and innovative approaches to business. According to a 2011 Forbes study, 85 percent of 321 large global enterprises (companies with at least $500 million in annual revenue) agreed that diversity is crucial to creativity and innovation in the workplace.

    Come learn from Dr. Shawn Andrews, expert in the field of training and diversity and published author of "The Power of Perception: Leadership, Emotional Intelligence, and the Gender Divide.", how training and development can support diversity to benefit your organization.

    Key Takeaways

    1. Examine barriers that contribute to the leadership gender gap
    2. Identify emotional intelligence attributes and their impact on leadership
    3. Explore how gender differences impact perception and promotion
    4. Leverage organizational approaches to be more diverse and inclusive
    5. Apply practical strategies to advance your career and leadership opportunities

In this time of change, you can use the framework of a product manager to tackle all of these new approaches and technology and prepare yourself for whatever comes next.

    Application On The Job:

    Explore the role of the product manager and how the responsibilities align with the role of learning system owner or designer.

    Wouldn’t it be great to know how to introduce a gaming dimension into the corporate training programs you design or deliver? What would it look like to include game elements such as points, levels, challenges, rewards, and easter eggs to drive participation, engagement, retention, and to achieve a measurable ROI?

    This hands-on, LIVE webinar takes you through the 5-step process of gamifying a training program. You’ll learn how to:

    • Define your measurable business objectives and determine how Gamification will help you to achieve your objectives
    • Weave analogies and stories to make the training stickable – so that players remember facts and transfer skills to real world scenarios
    • Create the right mix of ingredients and next steps in your learning activities to allow the participants to acquire knowledge and skill
    • Identify the game elements (points, badges, leaderboards, etc.) and game mechanics (chance, competition, collaboration, rewards, etc.) you will use
    • Construct a consistent, attractive - even charming and captivating - cohesiveness that ties the entire project together
    • Answer the question:  Is it fun?

    Gamification of real-world training and development is a powerful technique which can motivate people and help generate loyalty to your organization, its products, and its message. At its core, Gamification is about finding the fun in the things that we have to do.

    When learning is fun, people remember, apply, and return to the learning.

    About the presenter:

    Jonathan Peters, Ph.D. is an international professional keynote speaker, trainer, author, and copywriter. He believes that change is inevitable, adaption is vital, but success is optional. He works with those who pursue the option of success.

    For instance, his book, Cavemen Can't Market, shows how some companies continue club prospects with their pitches. They fail to realize that in the current era, consumers are in charge. Consumers, sales teams, employees – anyone we're trying to reach – must now be "wooed."

    Communication has been core to Jonathan's pursuits, first as a writer and professor, and later as a marketer and professional speaker. His current pursuits center on how leaders, marketers, and salespeople can utilize persuasive elements and new technologies to not only inspire, but also to compel people to action.

    His entertaining, energetic, edgy, and enlightening style not only makes learning fun and inspiring, but also memorable and applicable.

    From Articulate to Augmented reality, choosing which e-learning product to use for a specific job is a challenging task. Many of us default to what we know, or what our organization has always used, but this lack of adaptability can be limiting and costly. There are more than 110 e-learning tools out there, all claiming to be the silver-bullet solution for every online learning situation. The truth is that there is no single product that fits every project, and you can limit costs and development time by selecting the right tool for a specific job. This interactive presentation will teach you how to select the most cost-effective e-learning tool, based on instructional methods and content requirements. Employing these practices will help you create engaging education for your learners and stay up-to-date on new technologies, while not breaking the bank.

    By the end of the presentation attendees will be able to:

    1.     Provide examples of instructional methods used in effective
    e-learning.

    2.     Select instructional methods and identify e-learning requirements based on content.

    3.     Compare and contrast different types of e-learning design tools through rapid prototyping.

    4.     Create a basic cost-benefit analysis of a selected e-learning design tool.

    Intended Audience

    This program is for L&D and HR professionals interested in using gamification to improve their learning and training programs.

    - - - - - - - - - -

    Overview

    This program is like no conference or workshop you’ve attended. The Sententia Gamification Certification is a complete immersion experience that leaves you creatively inspired and technically masterful. Plus, this is the ONLY Gamification Certification that earns you recertification* credits with HRCI, SHRM, and ATD. 

    This hands-on certification takes you through the 5-step, trademarked, and proven process of gamifiying your organizational quest. The goal is to increase learning and engagement through key concepts found in game design and behavioral psychology. By adding game mechanics to training, gamification not only increases interest, but it also makes training "fun."

    A well-designed and well-implemented gamification program promotes engagement, meaning, mastery, and autonomy. Simply defined, gamification uses game mechanics and rewards for non-game applications in order to increase engagement, transfer knowledge, and create loyalty. Gamification is not just about rewarding points and badges, but rather understanding and influencing the human behaviors which companies want to encourage among their employees and customers.

    Is now a good time to put an end to dry, boring lectures and eLearning? Get ready to play full out during our Gamification adventure!
