The best takeaway was learning how to determine calculate the required appropriate passing score appropriate for an exam. This program instructs participants how to properly create an examination in a way that most people probably wouldn't think of or haven't been exposed to before.

I learned more in this class than I could write in here! The adult learning principles and styles were beyond powerful. It changed my whole perspective of effective training. I loved how Bloom's taxonomy was incorporated, as that is something that is heavily relied upon in my company. My favorite part was the demonstrations on the last day, duri...

"I took away a lot in terms of mobile strategy and how to get some small and big wins early on. I learned that it's time to get back to the table with IT and how to approach the conversation to really make mobile learning a possibility within my organization. I also learned that it's important to have the designers up to date on how mobile deliv...

My favorite takeaways from this program were the advice that a project is not a task, it is a series of tasks; you must learn from other learning professionals; and how to properly structure a project. This program helps you step back and reflect on how you work.

I really enjoyed the program. I learned how to figure out what training techniques to use, how to develop and deliver training, how to evaluate the success of the training, and fun icebreakers or classroom techniques. I also learned about needs assessment -- finding out if training is really the answer to the problem.
