Participant Comments:

The workshop was a wonderful experience and I want to keep learning, growing, and practicing!

I genuinely benefited from this experience. I think it will change the way in which we create our trainings.

I never thought that in my life, I would take a course on survey questions. I didn’t even know it exists until recently! I am very grateful for the opportunity because it provides one puzzle piece to my career as an instructional designer. THANK YOU, Will.

Just thank you. I am so looking forward to continuing with the work. We WILL write better tailored questions and do more evaluations using different methods to get at higher LTEM tiers. I will VIGOROUSLY CHAMPION within my sphere of influence, and I will ADVOCATE when given the opportunity outside my usual sphere of influence.

Next Workshop Runs in May!

More Details

The workshop is open to all, but it was designed for experienced learning and performance professionals. The workshop offers flexibility, enabling participants to take the workshop as a learning experience or add to their experience by doing extra work to earn their Gold Certification. There is NO extra charge for certification! Certification requires reading the book, engaging in extra exercises, and successfully answering challenging scenario questions at the LTEM Tier-5 decision-making competence level. Without doing the extra certification work, learning time is about 15 hours–about the same as a two-day in-person workshop. The workshop includes three live sessions and a substantial amount of asynchronous exercises, discussions, and a short project.
