This workshop is all about going after the 70%, the workflow learning. It is designed to help you, the designers, developer, L&D specialists and leaders, to add the follow-up and measurement in a space where it traditionally has been lacking. This can be accomplished through the utilization of Workflow Learning Experience Templates (LXT). Think of LXTs as hook-ups to your formal training methods to help ensure the content learned is applied and is available when needed on the job. These templates, when applied, can help your workers create more value every day while saving the company money by getting the most out of their greatest investment…their people.
By participating in this workshop, you will be able to:
- Connect follow-up and measurement with workflow learning experiences.
- Augment or redesign your formal training events to “hook-up” learning experiences in informal and workflow situations.
- Select the right learning experience for your content and objectives.
- Deliver learning experiences using LXTs (Learning Experience Templates).
- Choose from existing LXTs provided in the workshop.
- Create a custom-designed LXT that is unique to your training objectives.
- Implement and deliver the LXT follow-ups and measurements.
- Design dynamic metrics to help learners provide feedback on their work exercises.
- Use the current tracking and collaboration technologies you already have to implement LXT
Workflow LXTs are exercises and activities that help learners apply your training content in their work while they are on the job.
The Workflow LXTs help you solve these types of work issues:
- Safety accidents and violations
- High waste in production and processing
- Slow speed in logistics areas
- Uninspiring leaders
- Slow product roll-outs
- Poor customer support
- High defects and returns
- High reject rates
- ...and many other issues unique to your environment.
Workflow LXTs help learners apply your training content in exercises to handle work issues, including:
- Risk Analysis
- Impacts of Learning Metrics
- Data Interpretation
- Finding and Creating Solutions
- Project Management
- Handling Crisis Situations
- Understanding How Computer Systems Work
- Key 360-Degree Frameworks
- Your unique work challenges
By participating in this workshop, you will receive:
- 50 ready-to-use LXTs
- A Guidebook on Creating Workflow Learning Experience Templates

Jeffrey Riley has over 30 years’ experience in the learning industry as an educator and in the business world. He started life as a teacher in public schools then entered the business world selling insurance.
During the years before technology, Jeffrey created in person training along with manuals, guides, and job aids. As technology became part of all businesses, he learned to use that technology to improve learning delivery and learner performance.

As a one-person training department, he realized technology was the only way to deliver learning to a geographically growing company. He used various software programs to create and deliver learning through the Internet and learning management systems. One solution was to implement a train the trainer program so new hires in any office could receive immediate training on the corporate intranet guided by the trainer in that office.
He earned certification as an instructional designer using Dr. Robert Mager’s system. Some organizations he has worked for are Palmer & Cay Insurance, Wachovia, Savannah College of Art and Design, and Sunoco.
