We are happy to announce our COATD Learning Technology and Design Day conference is returning!  We are returning to the Quest Conference Center.  They have a new facility with more parking, more ventilation to clean air and remove pathogens, and more accessibility.  The new facility is right behind the old facility.  Click here to learn more about their COVID safety protocols.

2020 has been unlike any previous year.  We’ve witnessed entire school districts from kindergarten to post-doctoral programs move from face-to-face to online learning with no lead time or preparation. Companies that never had a single employee working remotely suddenly have their entire workforce in home offices. 

Central Ohio ATD’s Learning Technology and Design Day builds on what we’ve learned over the past year and provides real, cutting edge solutions aligned with adult learning styles.  You will learn how to utilize new strategies, increase engagement, make learning more accessible and improve performance by leveraging the power of learning technologies.

This year’s conference features a keynote with Kassy LaBorie.  Kassy’s keynote is titled “Virtual Training is Here to Stay. Now What?  Listen to this message from Kassy.
