Join us for an afternoon of excellence where we will share with and learn from some of the best in our learning community.


This year, we’re taking this show on the road! Over the past 20 years, we’ve learned and grown together with our clients and partners. On this special anniversary, we are going to take you on a journey through the years and around the world!



20 years of aNewSpring!
20 years of growth!


The aNewSpring Awards is an annual event in which the top Learning Journeys of the Year are celebrated by fellow aNewSpring-users.

Since 2017 aNewSpring has organised yearly Awards for all users of our platform. Over time different companies rose to the challenge and the crème de la crème were selected by a jury of their peers…

As the 2023 edition of The aNewSpring Awards approaches, we’re reminded of the incredible milestone we’re reaching: 20 years of aNewSpring! Throughout the years, we see our community growing and expanding, so we thought it would fit to also expand the categories.

This year, members of our learning community can be nominated in two categories:

  • The Most Impactful Learning Journey
  • The Best Learner Experience

Learn all about the upcoming edition


The aNewSpring Awards 2023 are open for visitors, learning pioneers and nominees!

Become a winner


It all starts with nominating the amazing learning journey you created yourself (or with a great team). As mentioned before, you can compete in two different categories, but there are no rules against wanting to compete in both. When you start signing up, just select which category (or categories) you want to compete in.

All nominees will be assessed by an experienced team of judges. This assessment process starts with your submission. All submissions of the candidates in each category will be shown to two different panels of judges. Once scores are tallied, the Top 10 will be identified and issued a badge which can be used on social media.

In each category, the Top 3 will be announced one week later.
Congratulations, you’re a finalist!

On Awards night, you will take your rightful place on the main stage (or on-screen) during the awards show and present your amazing learning journey. Following public voting, the winners of The Most Impactful Learning Journey and The Best Learning Experience will be announced!

Once you sign up, you will receive an email to complete your application and send in the necessary parts we need to start reviewing your learning journey.

This year we offer you two ways to submit your application:


  • Send us a short pitch video
    addressing the criteria in the category you have selected
  • Alternatively, you can submit a full presentation (PPT/Google Slides)
    sharing how your learning journey aces all the criteria in your chosen category

Hey, you want to see what a pitch video entails? Check out the video’s of last years awards.



So what do we expect from you in each of these categories?

In the category, Most Impactful Learning Journey,
show the jury:


  • How well you have used initial analysis, learning methods (didactics & evidence based approaches), and instructional design to create the best possible learning effectiveness and efficiency
  • How you translated these didactical principles to use of functionalities in the platform
  • How the learning journey created impact for the learners in their workplace and/or in society (we don’t mean learner satisfaction by this)
  • Share about the process of creating your learning journey. Maybe the first pass was not directly right? Please share your own learning journey as well

In the category, Best Learner Experience,
show the jury:


  • How you accommodated your learners the best way via your design
  • What deliberate choices you made regarding UX (User eXperience design), ease of use, accessibility, personalisation, colours, fonts, pictures, pictograms etc.
  • What innovative approaches you applied to support the Learner eXperience
  • How learners rate the Learning eXperience of your learning journey (qualitative and quantitative data, numbers and quotes)
  • Share about the process of creating your learning journey. Maybe the first pass was not directly right? Please share your own learning journey as well

Do you remember how, as a child, it was easy to rattle off your home phone number or address without batting an eye? It was made possible through the power of repetition. It unlocked the information from deep within your subconscious for ‘total recall’!



AcademySuite focuses on Brain-based learning. aNewSpring supports this in the form of “repetitive learning”. In this interactive session, we show you how you can work together with a learning development partner and a learning platform to bring your training to life.

You might call this the Code 95 hack! Join us today!





Update your drivers


Together, AS and aNS were able to contribute to the strong growth of Witteveen Trainingen with the development of online training. aNewSpring provided the platform and AcademySuite developed the online training. The CBR accredited the entire training program.

The result? Drivers saved four hours of classroom training time and are able to follow the Code 95 training wherever and whenever they want.

Adaptive learning
It works, but how?

Thursday, February 2nd, 2023
1PM (13:00) – till 2PM (14:00) CET
Online


What:
How does finishing a course 33% faster sound? Because that’s what adaptive learning can do for learners. In this webinar we’ll dive deeper into our research study and how adaptivity can help your courses!
For whom:
This webinar is interesting for learning designers who want to learn more about adaptivity. It gives you tips and tricks on how to implement this functionality. Beyond that, it’s truly interesting!



Ever had that moment when you just know something is going to take forever to complete? So, you delay, then start it hesitantly, only to be shocked when you get it done in a third of the time?

That’s the kind of time savings adaptive learning could bring to the table for learners.



Pull up a chair and we’ll share just how aNewSpring, together with Bohn Stafleu van Loghum (BSL), improved the learning experience. Even better? Join the webinar and find out how you can adapt courses yourself!

What can I expect?


Ger Driesen (Learning Innovation Leader) and Roy de Vries (Customer Success Manager) from aNewSpring together with Karin Linden (Manager e-learning) and Sara Swier (Projectmanager e-learning) of Bohn Stafleu van Loghum will dive deeper into adaptive learning in general, best practices and just how we adapted the BSL learning journey that laid the foundations for the groundbreaking results, achieved in this research project.

We’ll also have a Q&A session where we answer some of your burning questions!

Are you a learning designer who wants to increase the adaptivity and functionality of your courses? Has your learning journey hit a plateau? Join the discussion! We’ll share tips and tricks on how to reinvigorate your learning environment and give your learners the gift of time!



The research; traditional vs adaptive


aNewSpring together with BSL and HAN University of Applied Sciences, conducted a classical research to investigate the effectiveness of the adaptive learning course compared to a ‘regular’ (traditional) version.


BSL’s adaptive learning programme ‘Medical Mathematics’ was used to conduct this classic experiment on. Medical mathematics is an important skill for healthcare workers. Once every two years, they are obligated to show their competency. This programme is mandatory study material for many nurses and healthcare workers, but for most of them it’s definitely not their favourite subject. It is a very important subject though, because a small error in medical arithmetic can be a matter of life or death.

BSL looked into efficiënt ways to reduce study time but still prove correct competency. Imagine if they could finish their course 33% faster! That’s where the aNewSpring platform and team jumped in. The aNewSpring platform has allowed you to design adaptive learning journeys for more than 10 years already. However, we believe there’s still a lot to learn about this approach and that many more training providers and learners can benefit from it.

BSL and aNewSpring worked together to research adaptive learning in practice. You can now benefit from our acquired knowledge and results.
