Novations Launches New eLearning Modules on Diversity and Inclusion
Novations Group, Inc., a global talent development firm, announced the release of online versions of two of its leading Diversity and Inclusion training programs: Managing Inclusion™ and Appreciating Differences™. The asynchronous eLearning programs expand the firm's ability to meet growing client demand for blended training solutions and cost-effective learning programs.
Both the Managing Inclusion and Appreciating Differences programs have traditionally been delivered via instructor—led classroom training. By offering these programs online, organizations have a cost-effective solution for providing a large number of employees access to the content and learning when they are unable to be together for classroom training.
"The online version of these programs provides a great opportunity for knowledge transfer," said Rebecca Hefter, Novations senior vice president of Product Development and Facilitation Services. "While the classroom still provides the strongest platform for skill building and behavior change, we understand that investment in those programs is not always a possibility for clients today. These eLearning programs provide a viable solution for exposing employees to the key content."
Both programs feature self-paced modules delivered in an interactive format that includes audio, graphics and animations to help learners understand the content and how to apply it to their own work environment. Similar to the classroom-based version of Managing Inclusion and Appreciating Differences, clients have the option to implement the standard eLearning programs or customize them.
The Appreciating Differences eLearning program presents a pressure-free approach to exploring diversity with an interactive mix of models, exercises, scenarios and on-the-job support.
The Managing Inclusion eLearning program demonstrates the connection between diversity and inclusion and business performance. Users follow a manager as she reviews her team interactions and the impact of her managerial behavior on engagement and performance.
Both programs are SCORM, AICC and 508 compliant, and can be hosted on a company LMS, intranet or outside server. Site licensing is available for multiple-year use.
