    L&D Philadelphia is pleased to announce this workshop facilitated by none other than Jim Kirkpatrick from the ground-breaking Kirkpatrick family. The One and Only Kirkpatrick® Company continues to pioneer research and application in the training evaluation & performance space, taking up the mantle laid down by Jim's father, the late world-renowned Donald Kirkpatrick

    Training is still "on trial," charged with incurring expenses in excess of the value it provides to the organization. Training must reinvent itself and transcend the classroom.

    Attend this hands-on Kirkpatrick workshop to learn tactics for building programs and initiatives that enhance on-the-job performance and impact the bottom line. The information and activities included in this workshop focus on specific tactics at Kirkpatrick Levels 3 and 4. You will learn ideas that all professionals can implement in their own organizations.

    Whether you are new to learning and development or an industry veteran, this workshop will teach you the newest and most powerful ways to implement the four levels, directly from the creators of the Kirkpatrick Model.

    Performance Objectives

    After this session, participants will be able to:

    Define the true desired result for any program or initiative.

    Determine specific tactics to influence on-the-job behavior for a program or initiative.

    Integrate elements that enhance on-the-job behavior and bottom-line results into a program planning process.

    Follow-up: Free online resources guide; virtual badge that you can use to advertise your new credential as a workshop participant

    We will be hosting a Fall Networking event after the workshop at Landmark Bar&Grill on Market and 33rd Street. You can register for both events to save money on the networking event.

    Times are changing.  Training is evolving.
    Although ‘in person’ training will always have an important role to play in developing people, teams and organizations -  ‘Blended’ delivery which incorporates high quality, immersive eLearning is where it is at.
    The modern learner has far higher expectations, which often involves being able to ‘pull’ on learning when required as opposed to being ‘pushed’ through a training course.  This has recently been illustrated through the ATD ‘State of the Industry’ report, which highlighted the increased use of online delivery by organizations.
    Although there are now hundreds of authoring tools available to create this engaging online content – Adobe Captivate remains one of the industry leaders.
    This 1-day Beginners Bootcamp will provide ‘hands on’ training in how to use key features of Captivate to create professional eLearning content.
    Participants will be required to bring with them their own laptop with the 30-day free trial version of Adobe Captivate pre-downloaded (if you do not already subscribe to Adobe Captivate).
    By the end of this 1-day course you will be able to
    -Understand the eLearning instructional design process.
    -Recognize the role of Adobe Captivate Draft (works in conjunction with Adobe Captivate) in the instructional design process.
    -Locate and use key tools including text, images, shapes, audio, video, animations and characters in order to create engaging eLearning modules.
    -Include interactive features including buttons, click boxes and rollovers with the aim of engaging the end user
    -Create and publish an eLearning module in HTML5, which can be viewed on any device including desktop, laptop, tablet and mobile.
    Who is this course for?
    -L&D professionals who are looking to move into online eLearning content development.
    -Individuals who are new to using eLearning rapid authoring tools.
    -eLearning developers who are new to Adobe Captivate.
    Who is this course not for?
    -Advanced users of Adobe Captivate.
    -Individuals who are experienced at eLearning development.
    -We will notify participants 30 days before the event as a reminder to download the trail version of Adobe Captivate.
    -Please do not leave this until the day of the training.
    -Make sure to bring a power cord with you
