Modern Learning Salon 

Action Mapping Session 2: The Design

The Learning Innovation SIG is proud to announce the launch of the ATD NYC Modern Learning Salon, a new special series with quarterly topics, monthly sessions, and ongoing online discussions.

This is the second of three sessions on this quarter’s topic: Action Mapping. Participation in all three sessions is recommended but not required.

Session 1: 4/15 – Action Mapping: The Analysis
Session 2: 5/20 – Action Mapping: The Design
Session 3: 6/17 – Action Mapping: The Practice

Registration is now open. 


This coming quarter (Apr-Jun), for the premiere of this program, the topic is Action Mapping, a process created by world renowned training designer and author of Map It: The Hands-On Guide to Strategic Training Design, Cathy Moore, to help learning designers focus on what people need to be able to do, not simply what they need to know. Action Mapping is all about cutting out the extraneous information and objectives that do not impact the underlying business goals, and allowing the learner to practice what they will be expected to perform on the job. This leads to activity-centered training and resources rather than traditional information presentations and measurable business results!

We welcome those new to Action Mapping as well as long-time Action Mapping enthusiasts!

Connecting ATD Members from across the country…

For this series only, we are inviting members of all local ATD chapters across the US to participate for the discounted ATD NYC member rate. An added benefit of participating in this series is networking with TD professionals from across the country!


For the April monthly discussion we will focus on The Design stage of the Action Mapping Process. By reviewing this month’s resources, you will learn and be able to discuss the Action Mapping way to:

  • Design activities that help people practice behaviors
  • Identify the minimum information people need to complete each activity

Access to the resources upon registration.

ABOUT the modern learning salon

The Modern Learning Salon is a monthly meetup and online community open to those passionate about exploring innovative models, approaches, tools, and thought leaders in the Talent Development field.

The modern learner needs to get up to speed quickly. An online search for short “how to” articles and videos may provide all of the information they need when they need it. The Modern Learning Salon is designed with this concept in mind. Think about it like a book club with a few quick resources to review instead of books. Each quarter will focus on a different theme or topic with monthly meetings to discuss different aspects of the quarterly theme.

Here’s how it works…

  • Review a small, curated collection of blogs, videos, or articles about the topic - Just enough to be able to understand the basics and have a conversation around it.
  • Join the discussion - At the monthly live meetings, we’ll discuss thoughts and questions about what we’ve learned about the topic (each month is a different sub-topic) with special emphasis on how to apply our learning to our current real-life projects.
  • Continue the discussion - In between the live meetings, we can continue the conversation in an online forum.

Join us for the opportunity to connect with and have in-depth discussions with other talent development professionals around today’s hottest topics!

More details upon registration.
