I recently presented “Level Set and Level Up: A Learner-Centric Approach to Training in a Virtual Environment,” with Constellation Brands’ Director of Learning & Development Maggie Romanovich at the Training Industry Conference & Expo. In our session, we provided practical techniques for allowing learners to customize their own training experience to increase their personal investment in their learning journey. To do this, we examined a case study of training Constellation Brands’ sales audience using a learner-centric, multifaceted approach. Along the way, we uncovered the benefits of a flipped classroom, how to integrate secondary gamification elements, and how to ensure learning and growth continue after the training.
Constellation Brands is a leading producer and marketer of beer, wine and spirits, including iconic brands Robert Mondavi Winery, SVEDKA Vodka, and Corona Beer.
