Organizational Training & Performance's Description

Organizational Training and Performance Division 2016 Call For Proposals

The Division of Organizational Training and Performance (OTP) strives to bridge the gap between research and practice, facilitating communication, collaboration and sharing between academics, students and practitioners across multiple disciplines interested in applying current theory and research to training and performance improvement initiatives.  OTP is seeking proposals that align with this mission and the 2016 conference themeŚLearning from Las Vegas. The focus is on creativity in teaching, research, and in design as it is applied to the field of educational technology.

Academics, practitioners and students are encouraged to submit proposals sharing empirical research, action research and case studies related to workplace learning; the human performance technology processes of performance, gap and cause analysis, intervention selection, design and implementation, and evaluation; the role of technology to facilitate organizational training and performance improvement, and the application of relevant theories and best practices in a variety of organizational settings.
OTP welcomes proposals for concurrent sessions, roundtables, posters, panel discussions and Pecha Kucha sessions.  All persons submitting proposals to OTP will be entered into a raffle (one ticket per presenter, per proposal) with a grand prize of an Amazon Gift Card.  An extra raffle entry will be earned by those whose proposals are accepted (one additional ticket per presenter, per accepted proposal).  Additionally, all accepted proposals will be considered for division sponsored awards.

Please note that proposals, based on empirical research studies in progress, are expected to be finalized before the conference.
