TIME: 6:00 - 7:00 pm

Onboarding: Not just an information dump, but a learning experience!

Failed onboarding programs can result in frustration, wasted time and money.  But what can lead to a failed onboarding program?  One that is not backed by learner needs and science. In this session, you will learn how Domino’s transformed its in-store Onboarding program from a slew of eLearning modules and coaching guides to a more dynamic, interactive, and practice-based program.  You will learn about the steps the team took, using learning theory and science, to assess the opportunities in the old program and apply them to the new program.

About the Presenters:

Kinnari (Kinna) Middlebrook, an employee of Domino’s Pizza, most recently managed the Instructional Design team within the Leadership and Development function. The team manages the design process, development solutions and learning-based decisions around operations-based initiatives. Kinnari started her career with Domino's in 2010 on the Operations side of the business. But she soon found her passion for learning and development as she helped to build an eLearning strategy for the International side of the business. Her passion has since evolved into working with and educating other departments on the importance of finding not just "any" solution to learning, but the right one.

Erin Higgenbotham is an instructional designer at Domino’s Pizza, located in Ann Arbor, Michigan. She aims to create learning experiences that are relevant, applicable, engaging, and effective for learners. Before joining Domino’s, she worked as an instructional designer at Honda of America Manufacturing with the Technical Training Department, and at Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories in their SEL University division. Her educational background includes international experience studying at Waseda University, Tokyo, Japan,  a M.A. in Japanese Linguistics with a focus in Curriculum Development for Bilingual Learners from the University of Arizona, and a M.Ed. in Instructional Design and Technology from Kent State University.
