    The Kirkpatrick-Katzell Four-Level Model was originally conceived in the 1950’s, and though it has earned its share of criticism, it has remained the dominant evaluation model until recently.

    Two years ago, Will Thalheimer, getting input from industry veterans, crafted a new evaluation model to circumvent the weaknesses of the Four-Level Model. LTEM (The Learning-Transfer Evaluation Model), though simple in design, is a radical departure from other evaluation models. It encourages us to focus not just on performance and organizational results, but also on key learning outcomes, including decision-making and task competence.

    At the same time, LTEM is clear that measuring attendance and completion is inadequate and that we need a way to evaluate that recognizes the critical role of remembering and the prevention of forgetting.

    In this webinar, Will Thalheimer will take us on a tour of LTEM, and describe a number of ways that organizations are using it to re-envision their learning evaluation practices—and also rethinking the way they build their learning interventions!
