Session Description

The key to effective training in today’s fast-paced business environment is to design and deliver training that impacts the learner on a daily basis. It requires expanding learning beyond the standard courses and classes to include touchpoints at the Social, Formal, and Immediate levels (SFI).  This method is part of the 5-step Modern Learning Design Process (MLDP) as taught at "The Modern Learner" ATD LearnNOW course.  Join the Southwest Florida ATD Chapter at the February meeting for an overview of this new design process and gain an understanding of how your organization might benefit.


  1. Be able to define the new language of “The Modern Learner”, including SFI Touchpoints.
  2. Be able to rate learning items for SFI characteristics
  3. Be able to describe how a learning program can incorporate all three touchpoints

This event will be an hour and 15 minutes (75 minutes). We plan to begin at 11:45 am instead of 12 and end at 1 pm (as we normally do).
