Special February Event!

Jane Hart Workshops - February 18th and 19th 

The Modern Workplace Learning Landscape: What it Means for You and Your Organization


Dr. Jane Hart, Founder

The Centre for Learning & Performance Technologies

The role of the L&D function in the modern workplace is more than creating, delivering and managing learning; it is about addressing performance problems in more relevant and appropriate ways, as well as promoting, developing and supporting continuous learning. During the course of this workshop, Jane will help participants to understand how the way we learn at work is fundamentally changing, in large part influenced by the Web, and how organizations at the leading edge are modernizing their approaches to workplace learning.

Jane will take you on a tour of new learning initiatives and emerging trends that are taking place in the workplace today, and offer practical and pragmatic advice on how they can be implemented. Using her Modern Workplace Learning Landscape model as a guide, this workshop will cover topics including:

  • The need to move beyond e-learning
  • New content strategies
  • Social strategies
  • Personal learning strategy

Bring your laptop or tablet as the workshop will be highly participative.

The objective of this workshop is to assist you in finding your way on the new frontier of workplace learning, and in planning the way forward for yourself, your L&D team, and the organization(s) you support.  

As part of the workshop, attendees will receive a downloadable copy of Jane’s e-book Beyond E-Learning: A Guide to the Modern Workplace Learning Landscape.


Jane Hart is an independent workplace learning advisor who helps L&D departments around the world modernize their approaches to workplace learning by moving beyond classroom training and e-learning to support continuous performance improvement and personal development more broadly and in more relevant ways. Jane is the Founder of the Centre for Learning & Performance Technologies - C4LPT.co.uk - one of the world’s most visited learning sites on the Web, where she compiles the very popular annual Top 100 Tools for Learning list from the votes of learning professionals worldwide. Jane has been blogging for many years and her blog was recently rated top of the 50 most socially shared Learning & Development blogs. Earlier this year Jane published the 2014 edition of her popular Social Learning Handbook. In February 2013, the Learning & Performance Institute (LPI) presented Jane with the Colin Corder Award for Outstanding Contribution to Learning.

ATD St. Louis Chapter is working in partnership with the Academy of Human Resource Development to bring you this event.

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
