Next week is Spring Break in Florida for the eLearning geek set as we descend on Orlando for the eLearning Guild's Learning Solutions Conference & Expo.
I've already started packing (just to give you a sense of how excited I am).
I've got a busy week. Presenting a bunch of times and looking forward to all the schmoozing (my absolute favorite thing in the world!).
You can track me down in many places:
Tuesday 10:45-11:45 "How e-Learning Instructional Design Differs from Classroom ID"
I'm presenting this session with Ellen Wagner as part of the pre-conference eLearning Foundations Intensive.
Wednesday 7:00-8:00 Breakfast Byte "Talking Shop About Learning Theories"
I'm no expert on learning theory, but looking forward to expounding and exploring over coffee and croissants.
Thursday 10:45 ID Zone "How We Decide"
Author Jonah Lehrer presents Thursday's keynote. I've read the book and am primed to discuss ways we can apply these ideas to our work as Learning Designers.
Thursday 2:30-3:30 "Case Study: Converting a Live Workshop to e-Learning"
Nothing like a good case study to get the ideas flowing. I'm co-presenting with Karen-Ann Broe of United Educators as we share UE's journey into eLearning, looking at one workshop they converted to an online format with Articulate and Moodle. We'll share lessons learned and take you on a tour of the program.
Friday 9:45-10:45 "New Skills for Instructional Designers"
A wild hootenanny hosted by me, Ellen Wagner and Koreen Olbrish of Tandem Learning. Three feisty eLearning women taking a harder look at our profession.
And if you don't find me at any of those spots, I'll be hanging out the Kineo booth on the expo floor along with Kineo CEO, Steve Lowenthal, and Partner Steve Rayson. Stop by booth #208 and see what makes us so fresh!
Hope to see you there. Please stop by and introduce yourself – trip me in the hall if you have to. And if we’re connected on Twitter – make sure you tell me your Twitter handle. Some of you don’t actually look like your avatars…
