Implementing Learning Technologies Workshop – Beta outline
This outline describes the Beta version of the Implementing Learning Technologies online workshop. (Applications for the Alpha version are now closed.)
The Implementing Learning Technologies online workshop is designed to help make your next learning technologies roll out a success. It is based on the experience of a lifetime in learning technology, and in particular on my research for ‘Learning Technologies in the Workplace’ (Kogan Page, 2017). In writing the book, I looked at 16 years of case studies and uncovered the common factors shared by successful implementations, as well as the predictable errors made during unsuccessful implementations. This course is all about avoiding those mistakes and improving the odds of making your implementation a success.
The full version of this 4-week workshop will run in January 2018 at a cost of £480 per person. The Beta version carries an 80% discount, making registration fees £96.. In addition, all participants on the Beta version will have the right to attend the full workshop within the year at no extra cost.
For times and dates of Beta versions see below.
We will cover:
- Pre-work to be done before the first session
- Unit 1 – Foundations
- Unit 2 – People
- Unit 3 – Action
- Unit 4 – Roll out and beyond
Each unit consists of:
- A one-and-a-half hour interactive, online class session
- An assignment to be taken before the next class session
- A one-hour online surgery, focused on discussion
- Consolidation reading/activities

Classes meet online on Tuesdays for one and-a-half hours. They consist of a recap of previous work, some new content and then discussion and short exercises.
Assignments are designed to allow delegates to put into practice the content of the unit. They help to consolidate the content, and the results are discussed at the beginning of the next class.
Surgeries take place on Fridays, and are an unstructured conversation between everyone involved in the course, where delegates discuss how they are using they content, their issues with this week’s assignment, or observations about the course and subject as a whole. It is not obligatory to attend, but it is usually very useful to hear others’ reactions and thoughts.
Content for the next class
Prior to each class there will be content to be watched/read/listened to. It is important to engage with the content, or the next class can be hard work.
