Adult English Learners (EL) make up 40 percent of the U.S. adult education population, and this group is projected to keep growing. These learners—many with limited English proficiency—must speak with confidence at work and beyond. Accelerating English learning for adults boosts their chances of securing better jobs, integrating into their communities, and improving their lives.
Targeted courses and job-training programs show promising results in preparing adult ELs for the workforce. But there may not be enough of these programs to support the expanding need. Technology may be the best solution for reaching more learners, improving retention rates, and increasing success.
Join us for the webinar, “Engaging and Motivating Adult English Learners,” on June 21, 2018, at 3 p.m. EST. During this one-hour session, Amber Goodall, ESOL Coordinator, and Jerry Perkins, Lead ESOL Instructor, from South Piedmont Community College in North Carolina, will share how the school’s adult education program increased engagement, motivation, and access outside of the classroom. They will alsol offer tips for supporting adult EL needs and measuring the impact and value of adult education programs.
Join us on June 21, 2018, at 3 p.m. EST and learn:
• Why it’s important to provide language learning opportunities for adults
• How to create an ideal adult learning environment
• How to keep adult learners engaged and motivated

Technical communication professionals revolutionized the publishing world with the introduction of structured writing and intelligent content. By adopting innovative methods, approaches, and content standards, we were able to craft and deliver content to multiple channels quickly, often with reduced effort and cost. And, we’re not done yet.
When technical content is required for global audiences, intelligent content alone is not enough to tackle the obstacles multilingual content introduces. Combining structured intelligent technical content, terminology management, and translation memory together can solve these challenges. We call this the Holy Trifecta of Intelligent Technical Content. When all three of these are leveraged together, we can produce consistent content that is on-brand, on-message, and easy to read in every language.
In this session, attendees will learn:
* A clear description of intelligent content, terminology management, and translation memory
* An understanding of how they are interrelated and why they are important to technical communication projects
* A game plan for coordinating all three in order to create intelligent content that works, all the time, on any device, in any language

Being a patient in need of life-saving medical treatment can be cripplingly frightening—even the bravest humans often find their nerves of steel are no match for fear of invasive surgery or therapy for serious illnesses like heart disease or cancer. Many patients find themselves trapped on an anxiety-ridden ride made worse by the presence of poorly designed, ambiguous, frustrating and confusing healthcare content. Confusing jargon, misplaced focus, and a lack of empathy are common problems with information provided to patients during their journey toward healthfulness. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
Join Paul Perrotta for a lively discussion with Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, about his recent battle with brain cancer. Scott will discuss the content challenges he discovered while attempting to navigate the disorganized, inconsistent, and often less-than-useful healthcare content provided to him by hospitals, doctors, laboratories, transporters, specialists, nurses, medical device companies, technicians, pharmacies, and insurance providers.
We’ll hear Scott’s first-hand account of his experiences navigating brain surgery and cancer treatments and learn how adopting a patient-focused content strategy may help professional communicators improve healthcare information provided to those who need it.

When Carrie Kerpen co-founded Likeable Media in 2007, the social media agency was one of the first of its kind. Six years later, when she stepped up to become CEO, times had changed. The market was crowded, the competition was fierce, and she couldn’t help but compare herself to the heads of other agencies, all of whom were pretty much the same: Loud. Extroverted. Male. In order to reinvent her company to keep up with the changing times and come out on top, Carrie had only one choice: She had to work it.
What is working it? Working it is about understanding who you are, what you want, and what you bring to the table. Working it means refusing to compare yourself to others and instead focusing on your own unique super-powers. Most important, working it is the key to unlocking the biggest secret for achieving success: There is no one right way. There is only your way.
Key takeaways include:
•How to use your gut to make smarter decisions, faster
•How to tap into your network to help you avoid blind spots
•How to make your weaknesses work for you, not against you
The intersection between technology and human security is a difficult challenge for any organization to tackle, and although detection technologies are advancing, criminals are rapidly evolving their techniques and tactics to even greater levels of sophistication.
Their attacks are difficult to detect, and even security administrators themselves fall victim.
Join Perry Carpenter, Chief Evangelist and Strategy Officer at KnowBe4, as he explains the value of better understanding human nature, patterns and success practices when using technology to build a more secure operating environment. Hear practical advice on how to make both security and technology work with (rather than against) human nature to help reduce technology friction and simultaneously raise the security posture and resilience of the organization.
Topics Perry covers:
- Looking at the multi-dimensional nature of security
- Finding relevant intersections between technology and behavior
- Strategies to make awareness stick
- Brainstorming activities for planning your custom "Human Firewall"
Productivity in retail is hot right now, but often thought about with a one dimensional, cost savings lens. In fact, better results tend to be achieved when everyone in the value chain has visibility of problems in order to develop collaborative solutions.

Employee engagement is recognized as a critical driver of business performance yet most people and companies struggle to understand the concept and improve. Most of us want to spend our time doing a job that we love. We want to feel energized and passionate about how we contribute to the organization. We want to have a great day at work where we feel like we accomplished something and grew from the experience. All of these feelings are part of the concept of employee engagement. Yet most of us find it difficult to achieve this level of engagement on a regular basis. How do we make it happen?
Learn about the five simple keys to unlock the power of employee engagement in yourself and others.
How engaged are you in your work right now? Do you know what’s missing?
Employees and leaders intuitively know that when we find a place where we can throw our hearts, spirits, minds, and hearts into our work, we are happier, healthier, and produce better results. Yet, most struggle to understand exactly why we engage in some environments, and don't in others. Magic introduces the five MAGIC keys of employee engagement--Meaning, Autonomy, Growth, Impact, and Connection--and shows how leaders can help employees achieve higher levels of engagement, as well as how employees can be more successful by taking ownership for their own MAGIC.

Recruiting has to be more then just filling a vacant position – and retaining top talent is all about making the right selection to begin with. Managers need to look at the scope of the role – and how that may have changed since the last person held the position. What do they really need in the future…and how can succession planning be impacted by hiring just the right person. Candidates look for jobs in a new way, and the tools available to managers to screen candidates should be utilized. Technology can be a huge time saver in communicating with and evaluating candidates. Tools in background evaluation and personality assessment will be reviewed to help managers determine which are appropriate to bring into their recruiting process. We will provide participants with recommendations to determine starting salary and the proper preparation of the offer letter. Finally, our discussion will conclude with the tools to identify top talent and ensure they are aligned with the long-term success of your organization.
·Options for filling the candidate pipeline
·Embracing technology while still creating a personal connection
·Utilizing pre-employment testing at the right time for the right results
