IITT award winners

by | Feb 8, 2008 | Articles

The Institute of IT Training Awards 13th award ceremony took place at the Dorchester Hotel on the 7th of February and it was great to see the level to which learning technologies had been embedded within many of the award winners and had contributed to their success. Here are just a few:

Line Communications and the MOD won the gold award for e-learning project of the year with a programme that literally saves lives. The project involved 2 custom built cultural awareness programmes for the MOD for those on service in Iraq and Afghanistan. The MOD recognised it was essential for british troups to have an understanding of the different ways of life to minimise incidences of culturally predicated insurgence. The IITT’s comments from the judges commended the programme for its completely user-centred approach and excellent use of video diaries from experienced service personnell.

Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council won gold for Staff development programme of the year which focussed on their new recruits. They created a rapid authoring dynamic web based tool with Derby University that allows council staff to easily update the programme when policies change and engages managers with their staff training in new ways.

Matt Leaver, from Verridian won the prestigious gold award for trainer of the year  is part of the Nokia Academy training team responsible for delivering training on Nokia products and services. He was considered by the judging panel to be one of the best candidates for this award that they had ever seen with high levels of interactivity (incorporating mobile technologies of course), high quality professionalism and extreme customer focus.

We would like to offer our congratulations to all winners and to those shortlisted as they demonstrate the impact  that mature use of learning technologies have in the hands of excellent learning professionals.

La Vie en Rose, does seeing ‘life in pink’ matter?

Learning can be defined in many ways, but most psychologists would agree that it is a relatively permanent change in behaviour that results from experience. The three major types of learning described by behavioural psychology are; classical conditioning, operant conditioning and observational learning. In order for learning to stick and becomes the new normal, all three types require self-driven will. Therefore, how people view the world through their lens matters.
