With our European counterparts having recently wound down their conference in Brussels, we are revving up for the 2012 Users Conference in New Orleans March 20 – 23!
Our first major announcement is that Dr. Jane Bozarth, Elearning Coordinator for the State of North Carolina, will be our keynote speaker!
Jane’s talk, Look before You Leap: What You Measure is What You Get, will emphasize the importance of planning quizzes and tests with solid objectives and clear outcomes in mind. She will demonstrate the ways in which assessments can fail to measure the right things, and she will share some tips for improving assessments by building them right into the design of a learning program.
Jane holds a M.Ed. in Training and Development/Technology in Training and a doctorate in Training and Development. She is a popular conference speaker and has written several books including From Analysis to Evaluation: Tools, Tips, and Techniques for Trainers. Jane also writes Learning Solutions Magazine’s popular Nuts and Bolts column.
Online registration is now open, with savings of $200 for those who register by December 9. Group discounts are available, too, so be sure to invite your colleagues to join you!
Experienced Questionmark users please note: The conference call for proposals is open through October 28. Case study and peer discussion proposals are rolling in, and we’d like to receive one from you, too!
