Implementing New Learning Technologies:


"Myths, Truths, New Thinking"    

Lance Dublin Picture

New learning technologies, including social and mobile learning, performance support, games, simulations, and e-learning don't just implement themselves. Effective analysis, design, development, and evaluation are certainly necessary, but successful implementation is critical! The often quoted mantra, "the soft stuff is the hard stuff" is in fact, true. 

The "soft stuff" is the people issues that create awareness and understanding, develop involvement and engagement, and ensure integration into the individual and organizational processes that touch users, managers, and executives; and organizations must find ways to efficiently and effectively address them. 

In this session, the speaker will present a simple and effective model for implementation based on proven concepts and techniques from communications, consumer marketing, change management, and organizational development. And, the speaker will share the myths and truths that have come from these experiences, covering the implementation lifecycle from awareness to adoption to adaption to full integration. 

Come prepared to learn and share, reflect, and create.

  • Identify common mistakes and problems when implementing new learning technologies
  • Explore a proven model to ensuring the success of implementations
  • Apply concepts and practices from the fields of communications, change management, consumer marketing, and organizational development in implementations.
