In order to remain at the cutting edge of technology among a competitive marketplace, L&D and instructional design professionals across the life sciences industry have been given a call to action to design and implement visionary technologies into existing as well as new learning platforms. The modernized role of learning professionals has grown from training administration and curriculum management to an integral part of the overall corporate learning and leadership platform. Ensuring learners, both internal and external, as well as domestic and globally are provided with engaging and innovative learning resources, while promising the effectiveness of these new technologies, is vital to cultivate company-wide success.

Central to this program will be a vast knowledge share surrounding the implementation and execution of mLearning; specifically best practices in overcoming challenges faced in the conversion of training platforms to mobile devices as well as the implementation of a LCMS system to ultimately streamline content transfer and in turn, maximize learner engagement. Interactive sessions will display how to effectively track the results of novel learning technology programs to ensure learner comprehension as well as tactics utilized in establishing performance support of domestic and global virtual training. Understanding how other leading organizations are successfully applying these and other technologies within training and education, while also examining the hurdles that must be overcome during implementation, will provide delegates with unmatched conference takeaways.
