| || Introducing Certificates: Performance and Learning Competencies |
The Institute for Performance and Learning in conjunction with Steve Blane, an award-winning training consultant and instructional designer, is pleased to announce the launch of the Certificates in Performance and Learning Competencies. Steve has designed these courses to cover the seven performance and learning competency areas that have been identified by I4PL as the essential knowledge and skill areas for a professional in performance and learning. Steve previously worked as a facilitator for the Master Certificate in Adult Training and Development at the Schulich School of Business and now we are able to offer the I4PL Certificate courses consisting of four three-day intensive courses in Toronto and Ottawa, beginning in September 2019. Each of these four intensive courses will cover one or more competency areas and passing an individual course will earn the learner a Certificate in that competency area or areas. Passing all four courses earns the learner the Master Certificate of Performance and Learning Competencies (MCPLC). Many graduates of the MCPLC will choose to apply to the CTDP certification program after completing the courses. MCPLC graduates are given a credit of one year toward the work experience requirement of the CTDP certification program. For more information, visit the I4PL website.
Sign up for any course before August 15th to receive 15% off. Use promo code Early15 at check out!
Facilitate Dynamic Learning Experiences (three days)
Facilitating learning can range in scope from a small group gathered around equipment, to a meeting room with a few people, to a webinar with hundreds, even thousands, of participants. The content can be equally varied, from interpersonal skills to product knowledge to complex technical skills.
This workshop will cover key topics such as the mandate of a skilled facilitator, the facilitator’s accountabilities, and how to engage learners and approach typical challenges that arise in the classroom, as well as best practices to support the transfer of learning.
Designing Learning Experiences (three days)
Designing learning experiences can range from creating a 15-minute elearning self-paced tutorial on using a new software application, to setting up a social platform for employees to learn from each other and this workshop will also include a section on designing curricula. Content can range from highly technical skills, to skills like project management or sales, to “softer” skills like communication.
This session will explore a step-by-step process for designing performance-based learning that’s relevant, engaging, and grounded in instructional design principles, as well as best practices to support the transfer of learning.
Assessing Performance Needs + Evaluating Learning (three days)
Assessing performance needs can range from a designer taking a few hours to clarify what learners should be able to do after a learning experience, to an experienced performance and learning professional taking weeks to conduct a needs assessment of a complex performance issue that involves many work processes, functions, and roles.
This workshop will cover a case-based performance needs assessment, identify the causes of performance gaps, and identify the outcomes that support closing the performance gap. It will also cover key evaluation topics such as the purpose of evaluating learning, using key performance indicators to evaluate learning, and carrying out level 3 and level 4 evaluations.
Partnering with Clients (three days)
This workshop will cover key topics including establishing credibility with your client, and building and sustaining strong partnerships. In addition, you'll learn key project management tasks to complete to keep project delivered on time and budget.

Asha Pandey, a contributor for e-Learning Industry, writes: "As we hit mid-year, you are possibly looking at accelerating your training investments in CY 2019. In this article, I share my updated predictions of e-learning trends in 2019 that you can use to enhance your learning strategy."
Slightly less than half of HR professionals in the tech industry said they believe AI will create more jobs than it replaces, a KPMG report revealed. If their prediction proves correct, businesses will need to prepare to re-skill employees for the new jobs AI brings. In fact, employees are already asking for upskilling — employers are the ones lagging behind when it comes to providing the training they will need, according to a Randstad Workmonitor survey.
Training Industry News
In order to create the best learning experience, it's vital to mix up your learning delivery methods to ensure you're always delivering training in the most effective way possible, which is why a blended learning delivery approach is an excellent idea for your internal training offering. Let's take a look at some simple ways you can mix up training delivery methods to achieve the most from your training.
The ideal learning and development solution speeds initial learning, enhances long-term retention and builds strong behavioural repertoires. To determine whether a particular L&D solution achieves these goals, I outline a neuroscience framework for evaluating the effectiveness of L&D solutions. The framework is grounded in learning science and helps practitioners answer the simple but important question: Is this the best L&D solution for training the task at hand?
They say that if you want something done right, you should do it yourself. Is this the best approach for developing employee training, as well? Or should you spare the trouble and go for off-the-shelf training?
Training Industry News
Everyone agrees that training employees is good. However, when learning occurs on company time and the company dime, we need some measurement to show that employees are using their new knowledge or skills to improve job functions or other goals. Unfortunately, based on a 2004 study by Rob Brinkerhoff, then a professor at Western Michigan University, up to 85 per cent of employee training results in "scrap learning."
