The Informatology Peer awards and Conference

by | Mar 30, 2011 | Articles

At Towards Maturity we are very committed to celebrating excellence and the informal benchmarking that comes from the awards process.

We support a wide range of awards including the e-learning age awards, the Training Journal awards and the Institute of IT Training’s awards and always look forward to sharing best practice that comes from the winners.

With this in mind we wanted to let you know about a new award programme and conference from Informatology  where you get to be the judges! (deadline for registering interest in the award programme is 15th April).

It’s not often that you would see Miles Templeton , Director General of the IOD, Ruby Wax and our very own Nick Shackleton Jones and Clive Shepherd and perhaps YOU on the same conference agenda.

Do take a look and get involved!

Are you involved in a project or initiative that could interest others in HR and in L&D?

If so, Informatology invite you to enter for the 2011 Peer Award for Excellence. As a finalist, you would be invited to speak at the Peer Conference on 21, 22 or 23 June in London.

What’s special is that it is a “Peer” Award, because conference attendees listen to your ideas and then determine the winner.

The Peer Conference is not like other conferences
It is about having real conversations with the speakers and fellow participants. It is not about sitting through a day packed with talks.

The Peer Award is not like other awards
It is about expressing your ideas, and gaining the recognition of conference participants that hear you speak. It is also about possibly winning a prestigious national business award.

Some key facts…

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.

Towards Maturity Learning Health Check season extended to Monday 16 September. Early 2019 results highlight that only 7% of L&D leaders report that their organisation encourages and provides time for reflection*

By popular demand, the 2019 Learning Health Check season has now been extended until Monday 16th September. There is still enough time to complete your review and revisiting regularly can also help learning professionals to measure progress year on year, highlight areas where improvement is needed and provide evidence to build a business case for change.
