Yesterday Jane Bozarth and I sat down – face-to-face – for an interview about her background in EBP in L&D – Evidence Based Practices in Learning & Development and who her major influences were, etc.
I’ve known Jane since around 2007 via Social Media – and had invited her to speak at the ISPI Charlotte NC chapter back in 2010, and again in 2013, and a third time just this past January. She always does a great job. Check out her work at The eLearning Guild and her most recent Nuts & Bolts column for the Learning Solutions. And if she’s not speaking at the next Conference you’re going to – you might be at the wrong conference.
What I always liked most about her is that she really knows the research, and she gives it to you straight without any spin. She’s not selling anything – so you can trust her. I trust her.
In this video she shares her job progressions, how she came to a performance orientation in training/learning, who some of her influences were, a couple of anecdotes about people she admires in the business, her “takes” on Best Practices, ROI, Social Media and LinkedIN.
Enjoy this video with the amazing Jane Bozarth – which is 89:06 minutes in length.
Jane is the author of the following books: “Social Media for Trainers” and “E-Learning Solutions on a Shoestring” and “Better than Bullet Points: Creating Engaging E-Learning with PowerPoint” and “From Analysis to Evaluation: Tools, Tips, and Techniques for Trainers.”
See these and Jane’s other books on Amazon – here.

My HPT Video Series
The HPT Practitioner and HPT Legacy Video Series was started by me in 2008 as a means of sharing the diversity of HPT Practitioners, and the diversity of HPT Practices in the workplace and in academia. The full set of videos may be found and linked to – here.
HPT – Human Performance Technology – is the application of science – the “technology” part – for Performance Improvement. As the late Don Tosti noted, “All performance is a human endeavor.”
Whether your label for HPT is that, or Performance Improvement or Human Performance Improvement, it is all about Evidence Based Practices for Performance Improvement at the Individual level, the Team level, the Process level, the Department level, the Functional level, the Enterprise level, the Value Chain level, and at the level of Society/World.
HPT Practitioners operate at all of these levels, as this Video Series clearly demonstrates.
Although ISPI – the International Society for Performance Improvement is the home of many HPT Practitioners – the concepts, models, methods, tools and techniques are not limited to any one professional affinity group or professional label.
ISPI just happens to be where I learned about HPT – and has been my professional home since 1979.
