CPLP STUDY GROUP April 27th Feedback
The CPLP Study Group met on Wednesday, April 27, to discuss the topic, Designing Learning. This same topic was covered by Anne Schroeder at the monthly ASTD meeting on April 20. Her presentation was interactive and covered how to complete a successful training design.
The intent of the CPLP Study Group is to complement the monthly meetings with additional specifics in the Areas of Expertise (AOE). Our goal is to help anyone interested in the topic and those planning to take the CPLP certification with additional study and discussion time.
What was different about this session? To add some structure we used the flash cards from the CPLP Study Guide Packet. This was a bit like playing trivial pursuit except all of the questions were centered on designing learning. The team had fun answering the questions and found that we all learned something.
Another advantage of this study group is that we can talk with other professionals in our area and learn some new concepts just through our sharing, discussing and of course drinking the coffee of our choice!
Since our members indicated an interest in learning more about the nine AOEs in the CPLP Certification, we invite everyone to attend-whether or not you are interested in the certification exam. Over the course of the year the study group will review all nine AOEs. The CPLP AOEs comprise the following topics.
1. Designing Learning
2. Delivering Training
3. Improving Human Performance
4. Measuring and Evaluating
5. Facilitating Organizational Change
6. Managing the Learning Function
8. Managing Organizational Knowledge
9. Career Planning and Talent Management
