    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.

    In 2020 Gen Z will comprise nearly 20% of the workforce. Comparatively, by 2025 millennials will represent 70% of the workforce. However, most leaders struggle to understand how to engage and retain them and what they expect to experience in the future of work.  Moreover, as the pace of digital transformation in organizations accelerates and people analytics drive and inform performance, leaders must not only understand how to leverage data to drive outcomes, but also rationalize the expectations of millennials and Gen Z on issues related to the use of worker data, privacy, security and humanizing the worker experience. 

    Learn the core expectations of millennials and Gen Z about how they want to be lead, engaged and developed and how they want data used to enrich, expand and humanize the worker experience.  

    Key Learning Objectives:

    •    Examine characteristics and workplace expectations of millennials and Gen Z
    •    Identify how millennials and Gen Z want to be developed, mentored and coached
    •    Identify the importance of humanizing the worker experience in the Age of AI
    •    Apply practical strategies for leveraging  people analytics & data to improve performance outcomes and humanized experiences for millennials and Gen Z

    Working from home is the new reality for many of us. We’re surrounded by distracting technology. Our kids or spouse may need something in the middle of a task. We see a notification and feel pressured to respond immediately. Does this leave you unfocused, unhappy, and struggling to find time? This two-part session will introduce a new tool and provide a hands-on experience to working more productively individually and with your teams and clients.

    Part One introduces the neuroscience behind the Caveday methodology for overcoming distraction and pushing past internal resistance. This includes a short Cave “sprint” applying the methodology to a task.

    Part Two provides best practices and tactical tips to maintain and build strong work cultures on remote and hybrid teams.

    You will finish this 75-minute session and get some work done!

    Session Assignment: Bring a short task (about 10 minutes to complete) and materials to complete it. Example: E-mail response or organizing files.

    Key Takeaways    

    •    Explore the science behind why it’s so hard to focus and what we can do about it
    •    Apply the Caveday methodology to avoid distraction, overcome procrastination, and minimize decision fatigue
    •    Discuss ways to keep ourselves, our teams, and our clients motivated when working remotely
