Knowing whether or not participants apply back on the job what they learned in a training program is a critical issue for both L&D and the executives L&D supports. Demonstrating that learning is applied speaks directly to L&D's ability to be viewed as a credible business partner. However, according to an ROI Institute research study, only 11% of CEOs reported receiving this type of information.
So, why don't more L&D departments conduct Level 3 evaluations? A frequent answer is because it's too complicated. A second reason is that many L&D professionals lack the knowledge and skills needed to collect and analyze Level 3 data.
In this informative, highly engaging session, participants will learn how to implement a revolutionary new easy-to-use Level 3 evaluation methodology that produces credible, actionable data.
After attending this session, participants will be able to:
Ken Phillips is the founder and CEO of Phillips Associates and the creator and chief architect of the Predictive Learning Analytics™ (PLA) learning evaluation methodology. He has over 30 years of experience designing learning instruments and assessments, with more than a dozen of them published.
He regularly speaks to Association for Talent Development (ATD) groups, university classes, and corporate learning and development groups. Since 2008, he has spoken at the ATD International Conference on measurement and evaluation of learning topics. Since 2013, he has also presented at the annual Training Conference and Expo on similar issues.
Before pursuing a Ph.D. in the combined fields of organizational behavior and educational administration at Northwestern University, Ken held management positions with two colleges and two national corporations. In addition, he has written articles for TD magazine, Training Industry Magazine, and Training Today magazine. He also is a contributing author to five books in the L&D field and the author of the recently published ATD TD at Work publication titled Evaluating Learning with Predictive Learning Analytics.
As a pilot pioneer, Ken earned the Certified Professional in Learning and Performance (CPLP®) (now CPTD®) credential from ATD in 2006 and has recertified five times, most recently in 2021.
What participants have said:
“Very informative and excited to use Level 3 evaluations.”
“Amazing and loved the techniques.”
ATDChi - Talent Education Development Talk
Sharing perspectives and experiences across our community is one of the hallmarks of ATDChi. In the last couple of years, the way we work and network has changed greatly. We have a large community of TD professionals and we've identified an opportunity to share the experiences from our consultant community.
The ATDChi - Talent Education Development Talks occurring from 4-5 p.m. on Tuesday, July 26th, will feature three consultants from our community in three short, 15-minute talks. These talks will share their learnings from the field with emerging practices, tips, experiences, and peer learning case studies.
This quarter, the theme is "Workplace Learning Through Doing" and we are featuring three speakers:
Talk Title: Rotational Development Programs - A Win-Win for Employees & The Business
Description: Rotational development programs present an opportunity for talent development professionals to develop talent and partner directly with business leaders to add additional value to the business. The value of these programs goes beyond the important task of developing talent to support the business. ROI can be substantial when programs are managed strategically, in partnership with the business. Rotational development programs are a great way for talent development professionals to gain or maintain a "seat at the table" by contributing to company success in multiple ways!

Talk Title: Learning by Doing and the Importance of the Mistakes We Make Along the Way
Description: Engaging learners in scenario-based learning is effective because it aims to create a learning environment which mirrors the real-world environment which learners are already familiar with in their day-to-day jobs. Along the way learners will likely stumble and fail in big or small ways, and that failure will trigger learning. Subsequently, learners will be challenged to try and analyze and fix whatever it is that caused them to fail, just as they would do on the job.
Bio: Ed is the Assistant Director of Design and Communications Strategy at NIIT. While he has served a wide array of global Fortune 500 companies and nonprofits over the years to drive learning performance and engagement - - he is passionate about creating good learning experiences that are memorable and meaningful for learners - - experiences that relevant, tell an engaging story, and equip learners to do their best work on the job.
Talk Title: The Practice Field - A Safe Place and a Smart Place Where Growth Begins.
Description: In sports and the performing arts, those who excel, who make it to the top, do so because of an insatiable commitment to practice. Try it again, do it again, one more time... Practice that simulates real life situations makes all the difference - ask WNBA Coach Becky Hammon, Lifetime award winning Actress Viola Davis or Hall of fame Quarterback Tom Brady. In light of its importance, I thought it would be helpful to kick around a few ideas about the value of relational leadership skills practice.
Bio: Scott Sharik is the owner of "Keep Quarterback n Excelling, LLC," a company that provides professional coaching and training in the leadership and professional development arenas. Scott has worked alongside many remarkable leaders and peers during a 25-year span of HR leadership.
