Learning Pool awards 2017

Winning a Learning Pool award is proof to your organisation that you’re at the top of your game. It’s a fabulous recognition of your hard work and commitment.We’ve added a few new categories, so you can showcase the innovative projects you’ve been working on this year – including gamification and Adapt.

You can submit an entry, from one of the four new categories below, or – for Learning Pool’s nominated awards – your Learning Consultant will put you forward.

There’ll be six categories in total, and an independent committee will choose the winners, to be announced at Learning Pool Live, on Thursday 28 September.

1 | best learning technologies project – two awards, private and public/non-profit sector

As our customer, you know that learning technologies have the potential to have a huge positive impact within an organisation.

This award will recognise excellence across the board, in terms of content, use of technology, and matching the design to the user and organisational needs, a project that has lead to a lasting, measurable and positive impact in your organisation.

Learning technologies include all types of online content and may include adapt content, innovative use of the LMS, and other technologies, such as Encore.

We’ll be looking for evidence that:

  • the project has made an impact in terms of individual and organisational performance
  • your project has been aligned to a performance need
  • your project has made appropriate, and perhaps innovative, use of technology from their Learning Pool service
  • there is demonstrable evidence of a successful implementation strategy, including alignment with organisational goals, engagement with key stakeholders, marketing, support and evaluation

  • the extent to which they lead to greater engagement, enjoyment and motivation
  • provide a more effective learning experience than more traditional approaches
  • the reaction of learners and other key stakeholders to the design has been positive

Please include supporting evidence from learning and other stakeholders, to support your application.
