    On July 13, I will be facilitating a discussion around measuring and evaluating training for our monthly program meeting. As trainers, we have a huge responsiblity to ensure that what we teach in the classroom is implemented successfully when our participants return to work.  The respect that leadership, our peers and customers have for us as learning and workplace professionals is determined, in large part, by our ability to affect positive change.  We all know how difficult that can be!

    I'd love to engage in a discussion around your challenges, best practices and nagging questions regarding measuring and evaluating training. Please participate by posting how you evaluate the effectiveness of your training and workplace performance interventions?  How do you measure success? Do you have a best practice to share?  What answers do you need to help improve the return on investment of your training efforts?

    I look forward to our conversation.

    While Employee Learning Week isn't until December the Hawkeye ASTD Chapter is interested in any plans you have for your organization.  If you are willing to share, please do so here.  Also, what are your thoughts in having a local event - would your company have interest in participating?  In helping plan the event?

    Let us know.  Regards, Sheila Schmidt, VP of Programming

    Greetings Hawkeye Chapter Members.  Did you know that you can seek help with training questions, share best practices, or get ideas for your new project 24/7? 

    An internet forums (or message board) is an online discussions site where people can hold conversations in the form of posted messages.  You could think of it like a chat room, but the messages stay up when you leave the page, and everyone doesn't have to be online at the same time.

    We have a forum on this website especially for our members!  To make a post, or respond to a new post, you will have to sign in.  But anyone can browse the forum any time.

    Why not stop by today and join in the conversation?

    We are excited to be offering our second CPLP study group beginning the first week in August,2011.  This study group will prepare participants for the testing window - November 12- December 10, 2011.  The deadline for registering for the exam is November 4, 2011.

    There are many reasons why you should consider becoming certified:

    • More and more organizations are requiring the CPLP certification when hiring trainers, training managers and learning professionals.
    • Invest in developing your training competencies to add even more value to your organizations.
    • Build your confidence as a professional in the workplace learning and development field - stand out as one of the very best.

    If you would like to learn more about the certification, check out the following link: 

    If you are interested in participating in the study group, please respond with the following information:

    1) Where are you located? (We need to see how much interest there is at each site location.)

    2) What night of the week works best for you?  Please provide your top two choices.  The study groups are held from 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm weekly for sixteen weeks.

    3) Would you also be willing to facilitate a study group session, acting as the leader? (We have the CPLP Leader's Guide to share with those who volunteer to help lead a session.)

    There is no cost for Hawkeye ASTD members. There will be a fee for non-members to participate.

    Even if you do not plan to take the exam, you will find participating in the study group to be invaluable as we share best practices in the areas of expertise covered in the exam including designing learning, delivering training, measurement and evaluation, managing the learning function, improving human performance, facilitating organizational change, career and talent management, coaching and managing organizational knowledge.

    I look forward to your enthusiastic participation!
