The 2016 Allen EXPERIENCE | Chicago | Sept 20

Meaningful Content. Memorable Learning. Motivated People.
Co-located with Training magazine's Online Learning Conference.

It’s not an exaggeration to say that great learning professionals can change learners’ lives. Engaging learning experiences enable and encourage learners to improve their performance and fulfill their potential.

So, if creating exceptional learning is what drives you, motivates you, and makes each day better than the last—The Allen Experience is for you.

In this action-packed day of learning design, collaboration, process and game design, you will be given the inspiration, knowledge, and practical takeaways to achieve your learning goals.

Experience Three Activity-based Breakouts

Attendees will be divided into three groups and circulate through all three breakouts, two in the morning and one after lunch. The breakout sessions are lead by Allen Interactions' Thought Leaders.

  3. A Savvy Start With Agile-based SAM by Richard Sites

Lunch And e-Learning Demos

Enjoy a complimentary lunch and networking with fellow e-learning professionals.
