    Do you use assessments to target learning? Do others? Could they?

    Our panel of researchers and practitioners will share their experiences with the theory and application of using assessments to target learning.

    We'll talk about what's been tried, and how it turned out, and how these experiences align with assessment theory.

    With plenty of time for interaction you'll be able to share your own experiences and ask questions of our panelists.

    Come join us for an inspiring hour of conversation!

    The flipped classroom or blended learning approach has been proven as the most effective strategy for learning with the highest ROI in both schools and corporations. What is this approach and how can it be done? This session will give an overview of this approach followed by an example of how Discovery Benefits recently implemented this approach across all of their new hire curriculum. You will leave with additional information as well as some ideas on how to integrate “flipping and blending” into your own training programs.


    Jess Almlie has worked in various capacities of training and development for 20 years. She currently serves as the Vice President for Learning Experience at Discovery Benefits where she is responsible for casting vision and defining strategy for effective learning throughout the organization.  Jess holds a bachelors in Organizational Communication from Concordia College in Moorhead and a Master’s in Educational Leadership from NDSU. She is passionate about maximizing learning experiences in all areas, whether that means higher education, business, non-profit organizations, entrepreneurship, or family.
