Charles Jennings on Measuring Informal and Workplace Learning: Questionmark 2013 Users Conference Keynote
Posted by Joan Phaup
We are delighted to announce that Charles Jennings, one of the world’s leading thinkers and practitioners in learning and development, will deliver the keynote address at the Questionmark 2013 Users Conference, which will take place in Baltimore, Maryland, March 3 – 6.
His presentation, “Meeting the Challenge of Measuring Informal and Workplace Learning,” will focus on the widespread adoption of the 70:20:10 framework — based on studies that show high performers learn approximately 70% from experience, 20% from others and 10% from formal study.
Charles will show how the 70:20:10 framework serves as a strategy for extending development beyond formal, structured learning to include informal and experiential learning opportunities. He will pose some important questions about which approaches support informal and workplace learning most effectively and how to effectively measure the success of those approaches.
As head of Duntroon Associates, Charles helps clients with learning and performance strategy, change management and with implementing improved approaches to workforce and leadership development. Previously, he served as Chief Learning Officer for Reuters and Thomson Reuters, where he led a team of 350 learning professionals for the firm’s workforce of 55,000.
This will be our 11th annual North American conference and, incidentally, a celebration of Questionmark’s 25th anniversary! We are busy planning the conference program and are welcoming case study and peer discussion proposals from experienced Questionmark users.
If you have a success story to tell or would like to get together with your colleagues to discuss a topic that concerns you, please check out our call for proposals and send in your ideas by September 14. Even if you are not yet sure you’ll be at the conference, that’s okay. We’d still like to hear from you!
