May 2014 Business Briefing

Our May 2014 business briefing takes place at, EMC, Ovens on Tuesday May 27th starting at 6.30pm

 

Employee training is an essential activity in every business but how can we keep the training relevant, interesting and engaging, particularly in topics that may be mandated by regulatory authorities but can be challenging to make relevant and interesting to the trainee.

Game based learning (GBL) can help. GBL is a type of game play that has defined learning outcomes. Generally, game based learning is designed to balance subject matter with game play and the ability of the player to retain and apply said subject matter to the real world. Tyco International are redesigning their legal compliance training program to make it more effective and engaging and are planning to incorporate GBL (in collaboration with CIT & UCC) to help with that and they wish to share their story.

 

We are delighted to have:

Bernie Barber, Sr. Manager, Compliance & Ethics Education, Tyco International.

address the CEIA, sharing with us this evolutionary method of training to industry, which will achieve a greater ROI in this area. Bernie’s presentation will give an insight into how an education program, training 70k employees across 50 countries in 20 languages every year, has been reviewed and redesigned with a focus on training effectiveness and making the training more relevant and engaging for trainees. She will outline the review process and the rationale for the proposed changes which are based on cognitive theory, best practice and current trends in compliance education. She will discuss the current state vs. future plans for compliance education at Tyco and some of the challenges that driving innovative change in this environment can bring. The presentation will also outline how, with the help of CIT and UCC, she plans to incorporate GBL as a transformational element in the future Tyco compliance education program.
