How do you find the Story in the data
Krystyna Gadd, How to Accelerate Learning
Would you love to be able to collect data and do this ‘learning analytics’ stuff people are talking about? Struggle to know where to start? Worried that once you start you will drown in a sea of data that you won’t know how to use? In this webinar we will be exploring how to find the story in the data to enable you to not only identify the needs of your organisation but deliver on the expectations of your stakeholders. You will begin to see how you can provide a clear link between your solutions and the performance improvements that are required.
You will go away from this webinar feeling more confident in your approach to learning analytics by:
- Being clear about when you should collect qualitative or quantitative data and what the difference is!
- For a given example, select some appropriate methods for collecting useful data that will inform decisions and drive actions to improve performance
- Find the story in some data without even doing any maths
Krystyna has been in the field of learning and development for over 30 years. She is a consummate professional with a passion for helping people perform better through learning. She is a member of the CIPD and has delivered professional CIPD L&D qualifications. She is also a fellow of the Learning and Performance Institute.
With her background as an engineer, Krystyna applies the same process thinking to L&D as she did in her former career. Having moved from engineering to IT training, she spent years learning her craft firstly for IBM and later as a freelance IT trainer. This gave her great insight into how to make dry and technical training more dynamic and impactful.
A move into soft skills training in 2003 led Krystyna to research accelerated learning. She was particularly drawn to how learning could become more engaging as well as impactful. A frustration with the many models and theories within accelerated learning prompted her to create a signature system ‘Five Secrets of Accelerated Learning’, which simplifies all relevant theories and models for those curious about accelerating learning through their organisations.
