Truths about Training Evaluation: Resources shared at ASTD Long Island Event

Last night I had the pleasure of speaking at a professional development event for the Long Island ASTD Chapter. The topic of the discussion was “Truths About Training Evaluation”.

During the session, we explored the history of training evaluation, the benefits and challenges of how organizations currently evaluate training, as well as alternative ways that we can look at ‘evaluation’ that might better help us and the organizations we serve.

This post shares my presentation from the event, as well as additional resources that I mentioned or that relate to the presentation.
