Kevin M Yates, ‘the L&D Detective’, is speaking at the upcoming Learning Technologies Conference, May 3-4, on learning measurement.


Learning Technologies 2023 - Solving the mystery of impact measurement.

At Learning Technologies 2023, 3-4 May in London, Kevin M Yates will highlight the importance of measurement and showing the value of learning solutions.

Showing the value of learning is crucial – and it’s not something that you can start thinking about after an intervention. So when should you start, and what should you do? Helping us solve that mystery at this year’s conference is Kevin Yates. For Kevin this puzzle is something with an answer, and working together, he’ll provide the tools to help you find the answer. 

Learning Technologies Conference Chair, Donald H Taylor, said: “What is the measurable effect of your training and learning solutions? How has learning influenced human performance and business results? Are there facts, clues, evidence, and data that reveal impact? Join Kevin M. Yates, the L&D Detective™, as he investigates outcomes for training and learning. Just like Watson working alongside Sherlock Holmes, you’ll help solve a measurement mystery.”

Kevin M. Yates’ session, Solving the mystery of impact measurement, takes place on day one of the conference, 3 May, and covers:

  • Nine essential questions for solving measurement mysteries
  • Metrics and measures that give signals for impact
  • What you can and cannot measure
  • Data that reveals learning’s influence on human performance
  • Fulfilment of purpose for training and learning using an evidence-based approach
