Whether your organization creates, delivers, or outsources its training, you need good feedback on the value of the learning.  Feedback should inform decision making, but too often smile sheets (learner evaluation forms) ask the wrong questions at the wrong time. They also miss valuable opportunities to continue supporting the learning process.  In this session, Dr. Will Thalheimer will highlight key takeaways from his recently published book: Performance-Focused Smile Sheets – A Radical Rethinking of a Dangerous Art Form. Informed by the research on learning and learning measurement, performance-focused smile sheets represent the first substantial improvement in evaluation-form design in over 30 years. By the end of this session, you’ll know how to avoid the dangers of current evaluation forms—and, more importantly, you’ll have a blueprint for how to get valid feedback on the work that you do.

Will Thalheimer, Ph.D., is a consultant and research translator, providing organizations with learning audits, research benchmarking, workshops, and strategic guidance. Will shares his wisdom through keynotes, research reports, job aids, workshops, and blog posts.
