Included in the line-up is a case study presentation by Sally Tilstra, Learning Technology Manager for Sanford Health’s Center for Learning & Innovation.  Tilstra, who has experienced the challenges and rewards of providing online learning for a distributed workforce, will share insight into the organization’s successful, large-scale training and certification initiatives.
