    PRESENTER
    Paul J. Zak, PhD

    DATE AND TIME
    March 12, 2021 at 8:00AM

    PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

    Imagine if you could watch people's brains while they were learning.  Imagine if every learner received customized feedback showing how well she or he understood the material.   If this were possible, then you could objectively demonstrate the value of training to your organization. 

    That time is now.

    This presentation will describe the neuroscience of immersion, why people remember content, and how learning professionals have measured immersion to improve content delivery.   The science shows that effective training must get learners to be emotionally invested in learning new information if it is to stick.  Rather than guess that your training is effective, measuring immersion in real time provides objective, actionable, and real-time metrics that engages every learner, whether in-person or remote.

    BIOGRAPHY

    Human connection. Paul’s two decades of research have taken him from the Pentagon to Fortune 50 boardrooms to the rain forest of Papua New Guinea.  All this in a quest to understand the neuroscience of human connection, human happiness, and effective teamwork.  His academic lab and companies he has started develop and deploy neuroscience technologies to solve real problems faced by real people.

    His latest book, Trust Factor: The Science of Creating High Performance Companies, uses neuroscience to measure and manage organizational cultures to inspire teamwork and accelerate business outcomes.  His 2012 book, The Moral Molecule: The Source of Love and Prosperity, recounted his unlikely discovery of the neurochemical oxytocin as the key driver of trust, love, and morality that distinguish our humanity.   In another obsession, Paul’s group uses neuroscience to quantify the impact of movies, advertising, stories, and consumer experiences.  Along the way, he has helped start several transdisciplinary fields, including neuroeconomics, neuromanagement, and neuromarketing.

    Here are his specs: Paul is the founding Director of the Center for Neuroeconomics Studies and Professor of Economics, Psychology and Management at Claremont Graduate University. He has degrees in mathematics and economics from San Diego State University, a Ph.D. in economics from University of Pennsylvania, and post-doctoral training in neuroimaging from Harvard.  You can check out his academic labthe first Neuroscience as a Service (NaaS) platform, and neuromanagement company. He also serves as a senior advisor to Finsbury, a global leader in strategic communications that advises many of the world’s most successful companies.

    Paul’s research on oxytocin and relationships has earned him the nickname "Dr. Love."   That’s cool.  He’s all about adding more love to the world.

    Irene Stern Frielich

    DATE AND TIME
    April 9, 2021 at 8:00AM

    PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

    Pizza can be delicious, when made well. But too many toppings, the wrong combination of ingredients, or too little time in the oven can drive away even the most ardent pizza lover. 

    What has that got to do with supporting your subject matter experts? 

    Join us as Irene Stern Frielich leads an interactive discussion about the value of the SME, what to look for in an SME, and typical challenges we face when working with SMEs. Irene will share five secrets to successful SME partnerships (and making a good pizza).

    Dr. David Paredes

    DATE AND TIME
    May 14, 2021 at 8:00AM

    PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

    There are numerous triggers of anxiety at work.  Learning and development should not be one of them; however, employees may feel overwhelmed by the prospect of selecting the right learning opportunity from a seemingly countless number of options.  As L&D professionals, we can help reduce the anxiety brought on by the amount of choice, if we:

    • Challenge self-perceptions of learning styles
    • Educate employees on learning terminology
    • Align time commitments and assessments with employees' goals and availability
    • Capture feedback on learning opportunities
    • Provide best practices for learning in different instructional modalities

        BIOGRAPHY

        Dr. David Paredes is an Adjunct Lecturer in Purdue University's Learning Design and Technology graduate program.  He has over 20 years experience in the field of corporate learning and development.
