Check it out! I'll be at Training 2016 next week: February 15-16 in Orlando, Florida.
This is Training Magazine’s 39th annual conference & expo, and it’s sure to be magical given the proximity to the Magic Kingdom.
I'll be speaking twice on Tuesday, February 16:
The Accidental Instructional Designer: Designing Better eLearning
8:00-9:00 am, Session 312
Chances are, you didn’t dream of becoming a designer of eLearning when you grew up, did you? Most instructional designers in the eLearning business got here by accident. So now that you’re here and doing this work, how can you become a more intentional practitioner? You’ll take a look at four key areas to focus on in order to become a well-rounded eLearning designer, talk about ways that you can take your practice to the next level, and share some quick tips for better eLearning design.
Avoiding Clicky Clicky Bling Bling: Top Tips for Making eLearning that Shines from the Inside
1:45-2:45 PM, Session 501
Clicky-clicky bling-bling is eLearning with lots of whiz, lots of bang, lots of clicky-clicky in a lame attempt to add pizzazz to dry content and to make it more engaging. Don’t mistake clicky-clicky bling-bling for “engagement.” It’s just shiny wrapping paper covering up a pair of crummy socks with holes in them. Don’t get caught with crummy socks! Get top tips for making eLearning that rises above the bling, looking at strategies for writing, graphics, games, and interactivity.
Both sessions are part of the conference’s Boot Camp track, and are open to all conference attendees.
Stop by, learn a few tidbits, and be sure to say hi!
