75% of L&D professionals could reduce external spending by developing their own skills

Tom Kuhlmann – the well known eLearning guru – will be sharing his knowledge and skills at a one day, interactive, rapid eLearning workshop on 22 May, London. The event is designed to help boost skills to build cost effective in-house eLearning.
Feb. 20, 2012 - PRLog -- According to research*, a staggering 75% of L&D staff lack instructional design skills to develop their own cost effective eLearning. In a bid to help build these instructional design skills – which can help all organisations do ‘more with less’ within their L&D budgets – The Charity Learning Consortium is hosting a one day master class with Tom Kuhlmann. The workshop is being held in Central London on 22 May.

“In today’s economy, there’s a lot of pressure on people to do more with less. Rapid elearning technologies allow this to happen,” said Tom, an inspirational instructional designer and high profile learning technologies blogger.“I’m excited to share some practical tips and tricks that will help people succeed and deliver effective eLearning courses.”

The workshop is generic and tool neutral, and suitable for those new to eLearning as well as those who’d like to enhance their eLearning design skills. It is open to all - not just members of the Consortium - with discounts available for members of the eLearning Network and the Towards Maturity Benchmark Centre.

Martin Baker, founder and CEO of The Charity Learning Consortium, and MD of the recently formed Corporate eLearning Consortium, said: “Rapid eLearning can help to drive down L&D spend, but most learning professionals don’t possess the instructional design skills to really make the most of new eLearning technologies.

“Tom is great at supporting professionals on their eLearning journeys, and his well known learning technologies blog has garnered a massive following around the world, so I’m really looking forward to welcoming him to host this master class.”

Recently named as one of the most influential people in eLearning in the world, Tom will be sharing his expertise - which he has gathered through the colourful world of interactive and engaging eLearning - in this full day workshop.

This is Tom’s only date in London in 2012, so it offers delegates a rare opportunity to meet and work with the inspirational instructional designer, and learn how to become a rapid eLearning pro.

There is an attendance fee of £199 with discounts available for qualifying groups. Booking is online via The Charity Learning Consortium website. www.charitylearning.org

*The 75% statistic was taken from the Towards Maturity benchmark report, Boosting Business Agility which is available to download from www.towardsmaturity.org/

“Too many of our L&D staff are still out of their comfort zone when it comes to designing great online content,” said Laura Overton, MD of Towards Maturity, the highly regarded learning technologies benchmarking organisation. “This is a great opportunity to develop some instructional design skills to kick start creating cost-effective in-house eLearning.”
