    Teaching professional software seems simple—until it isn’t. Inadequate training is often blamed for failed software adoption, even if broken software is the problem. Meanwhile, the need for workers to learn new software grows everyday. 

    As learning experts, we need to leverage the best strategies to design, develop, and manage software training. Where do we start and what should we avoid? The answers involve a mix of disciplines—a mix that our speaker, Steve Brooks, has gleaned over three decades in technical training.

    In this interactive session, Steve will share numerous examples, offering insights like what should go in training vs job aid resources, what kinds of e-Learning styles to use, and how to help learners with ever-changing software versions. 

    Join the exploration and conversation on this fascinating topic! 


    Steven Brooks is a Senior Instructional Designer with Public Partnerships. His specialty is e-Learning and software training, having created both for numerous different industries. Steve also serves as President of the ATD-Cascadia Chapter.

    The world has changed. The Great Resignation is real and the data is stunning. Certain realities such as a flat labor market, discontent in the workplace, and shifting priorities are creating a perfect storm for a mass exodus of employees from their current jobs.

    At the same time, there has been a massive shift in how we deliver and invest in workplace learning. The new State of the Industry report from ATD explores the latest data, with insights to help us look ahead and understand what changes are here to stay.

    Please join us for an interactive session where we will share our experiences, struggles, and insights for navigating contemporary issues in talent development.

    During our time together, you will have an opportunity to:

    • Recognize and embrace shifting social and economic realities

    • Anticipate, and take into account the changes that are emerging externally

    • Consider how to shape our responses to best serve our organization, our customers, and our employees
