ATD Valley of the Sun Chapter to Announce Don Kirkpatrick Scholarship Winner
Each year, the Valley of the Sun Chapter of the Association for Talent Development (ATD, formerly ASTD) hosts the Don Kirkpatrick scholarship competition in conjunction with Kirkpatrick Partners.
The purpose of the scholarship is to provide members of the local ATD-VOS community the opportunity to enhance their effectiveness and business impact by learning and applying the Kirkpatrick Model for evaluating training programs.
Applicants submitted their applications/essays in mid-September and are anxiously awaiting the announcement of the winner on October 17 and the chapter’s 2014 IGNITE Conference.
The winner will receive a free seat in a Kirkpatrick Four Levels® Evaluation Certification Program – Bronze Level. Once the winner has attended the program, we will follow up quarterly for the benefit of the Kirkpatrick Community to share how they are applying what they learned in the program. Stay tuned for these great tips and ideas from the scholarship winner, many of which you may be able to apply immediately within your own organization.
