- Let's cover a few things to help you get the most out of this course. First, it's primarily designed for workplace learning professionals. This includes instructional designers, facilitators, and training leaders who want to evaluate employee development programs. How to Measure Learning Effectiveness provides a practical guide for evaluating training, so you use this course even if you don't consider yourself to be a training professional. These techniques can be applied to all types of learning programs, including instructor-led classroom training, e-learning, or blended learning.
And you can use these skills to evaluate training on all sorts of topics, such as new hire training, technical training, leadership training, or anything else. This course is based on the industry standards outlined in the ATD Competency Model. These are the same standards that learning professionals who want to earn their CPLP certification are expected to know. I've also incorporated techniques and examples from some of today's leading experts on training evaluation. Finally, I've created a few resource guides and worksheets to help you implement the concepts covered in this training program.
One of those worksheets is a learning plan. I recommend downloading the Learning Plan Worksheet now. Use it to identify your goals for this course, and perhaps identify a specific training program of your own that you'd like to evaluate. You can use this worksheet throughout the course to keep track of action items you'd like to complete that will help you achieve your goals. My suggestion is to complete your learning plan now before moving onto the next video.
Check the exercise files for sample evaluation plans, reports, checklists, and worksheets that you can use to evaluate your own employee development program.
