Chloe MendoncaPosted by Chloe Mendonca

The first ever South African Questionmark Users Conference will start about seven weeks from now, so early-bird sign-ups will end July 14th.

If you want to save R350 on your conference registration, now is the time to register!

We are looking forward to welcoming customers as well as individuals interested in learning more about Questionmark to this event in Midrand, South Africa, on August 21-22.

We’re still building the conference programme and will provide much of the content ourselves, but customers enrich the programme by sharing case studies on successes and lessons learned. We are actively seeking ideas for these sessions, so Questionmark users are invited to check out the conference call for proposals and respond by 14th July.

Here are just a few reasons to attend this conference, hosted by Bytes:

  • Learn more about Questionmark’s Assessment Management System
  • Participate in assessment best practice sessions
  • See the latest Questionmark solutions and features
  • Improve your effectiveness in using Questionmark technologies
  • Hear about the product roadmap and influence future developments
  • Network with other testing and assessment professionals and learn from their experiences
  • Meet with Questionmark and Bytes staff

We hope you will register soon, and we look forward to seeing you in South Africa.

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!

Bryan Chapman

With the Questionmark European Users Conference just completed in Amsterdam this week, we are gearing up for the 2011 Users Conference in Los Angeles March 15 – 18.

We’re very pleased that Bryan Chapman will present the keynote address there. As Chief Learning Strategist at Chapman Alliance, Bryan is involved in providing research-centric consulting solutions that help organizations define, operate and optimize their strategic learning initiatives. His talk on Assessment’s Strategic Role in Enterprise Learning: Innovation and Trends will include examples of innovative assessment strategies that have improved learning and performance within many different organizations.

In addition to tech training, best practice presentations, demonstrations of new technologies, meetings with Questionmark product managers and drop-in meetings with the Questionmark techs, the conference includes case studies and peer discussions presented by Questionmark users. The call for proposals is now open, so we hope that Perception users who are thinking about attending will consider their own participation in the conference program.

This video will give you a general overview of what happens during the conference.
