What is Employee Learning Week?

ATD's Employee Learning Week (ELW) is an opportunity for companies to demonstrate their commitment to talent development. During the week, remind employees about all of the learning and talent development opportunities they can access.


Where?

Employee Learning Week events can happen anywhere. Hold events in your work and break areas throughout your organization or hold an off-site event.


Why? Who?

Developing talent is more important now than ever before. The growing skills gap and Increased need to compete In today's economy require  organizations to develop knowledgeable and highly skilled talent.

All organizations are encouraged to recognize Employee Learning Week by rededicating themselves to developing their talent.


How? When?

The possibilities are endless! You can showcase your organization's learning and talent development best practices. Find additional ideas by visiting www.employeelearningweek.org

Plan special events, meetings, or distribute communication during ELW, the first full week of December. Continue investing in employee learning throughout the year.

Embracing the Challenges of Mobile Learning

Scott McCormick, Co-founder

Float Mobile Learning

Sometimes it seems that mobile changes all the rules of learning. Changes in instructional design, interface design, development tools, learner devices, security – you name it – mobile presents a whole new list of challenges. Scott’s presentation will focus on how these challenges can be seen as a great opportunity to invigorate your learners with mobile deliverables that are useful and sound. Mobile takes advantage of the “just in time – just enough – just for me” approach by delivering the right content at the time of need. Instead of feeling overwhelmed, learning professionals now have the opportunity to reach their audiences in new and powerful ways, some of which are uniquely mobile. Come and be encouraged about the future of learning.

During this presentation you will learn:

  • Proven strategies for effective mobile learning
  • Delivery options for the mobile platform
  • Initial steps for your first mobile initiative
