Are you looking for creative ways to enhance learner retention through the increased use of film?  How can you measure its impact and value in workplace development? 

There are two primary challenges that talent development leaders face: measuring the impact of workplace development and demonstrating its value to other leaders within the organization. Information retention is one measurable method to assess the effectiveness of a program. Using film in training is an effective method to maximize information retention and accelerate your learning! 

This session will focus on research findings that information retention is significantly increased with the use of film which can inspire people. You will learn the key elements of the global study, gain an appreciation for which films may work better than others, and walk away with an evidence-based tool for using film in talent development programs.
