What They Do  and What They Provide the Chapter

What They Do

Idea Learning Group was formed in 2009 with three goals in mind:

  • Focus on improving the way adults learn in the workplace with more experience-based learning opportunities.
  • Create custom learning materials to increase audience engagement and make the experience of learning more meaningful.
  • Serve as an external resource for businesses that either lack training departments or whose training teams need additional resources.

In 2015, Idea Learning Group was hired by the Cascadia Chapter to develop cutting edge, online content using the latest learning technologies. The contract is a multi-year project to build sessions that support the ATD Competency Model™. The content will be owned by the Chapter and will replace previous workshops like Fundamentals of Training and eLearning Fundamentals.
