We had a great turnout for the Training With Technology seminar that we co-hosted with Imagine Training. The turnout included a mix HR Managers, Training Coordinators and IT directors.
Our attendees left some lovely comments on the seminar, but my favourite from the day was:
I thought all three presentations were really interesting and informative - with each giving a different, but complimentary, perspective on our use of technology. Rhiannon
Adam gave a presentation on how modern technology is affecting attention spans and how using short focussed courses can engage learners. He also discussed his five top tips for introducing the technique to your organisation. A copy of the presentation is below.
Karen delivered an excellent tutorial to some of the new features in Office 2013. I think that the most impressive feature is the amount of data that the new version of Excel can handle, and how easily datasets can be combined.
Neil's talk was a fascinating insight on how easily computers can be afflicted by malware and the potential repercussions. The biggest takeaway from the talk was to take sensible precautions like using a different password for every system and never letting your browser store your passwords!
After the success of this event we are keen to run another one next year, so if you would like to register your interest get in touch.
