CPLED and Artha Learning Inc. win award for Best Advance in Custom Content

Mississauga, Ontario (Friday, September 18, 2020) – Canadian Centre for Professional Legal Education (CPLED), the non-profit organization who provides the training needed before students are called to the Bars of Alberta, Manitoba, Nova Scotia and Saskatchewan, alongside Artha Learning Inc., won a coveted Brandon Hall Group Bronze award for excellence in the Best Advance in Custom Content category for their work on the Practice Readiness Education Program (PREP).

“We couldn’t be prouder of PREP and how it all came together to become an innovative and engaging Bar admission program. Artha Learning Inc. understood our vision and brought the multimedia modules to life, providing students with an interactive learning experience,” says Dr. Kara Mitchelmore, CPLED CEO.

“The project allowed our team to work closely with lawyers and academicians to build two multimedia modules for PREP, providing students an interactive eLearning experience for various lawyer skills such as negotiating, drafting, advocacy and interviewing. We worked with CPLED to support, implement and enhance the modules through their pilots and launch, delivering the project on-time and on budget,” says Garima Gupta, Lead Instructional Designer and Director, Artha Learning group Inc.

The Brandon Hall Group recognizes the best organizations that have successfully deployed programs, strategies, modalities, processes, systems and tools that have achieved measurable results. “The Excellence Awards serve the critical function of reinforcing the essential business benefit of creating great experiences for candidates and employees,” Brandon Hall Group CEO Mike Cooke said. “All award winners must demonstrate that their HCM programs drive bottom-line business results.
