    Description:

    People get into eLearning from a variety of professions. Some were subject matter experts or trainers; others had focused their careers on media or web development. At some point, though, someone asked or encouraged them to develop eLearning. So, they bought and learned to use an authoring tool, but they likely weren’t given much background on instructional design techniques and how these can help them build better eLearning.

    During this session, you’ll get a solid introduction to the core basics of instructional design. Participants will define what quality eLearning experiences are like by reviewing self-paced courses and discussing likes and dislikes. Then, you’ll look at how using instructional design principles and processes improves quality, ROI, user satisfaction, and success rates. You’ll explore how needs assessments can help you know what your audience needs. You’ll also build your skills by learning to write measurable behavioral objectives based on your needs assessments; see examples of course design documents and storyboards; and receive a list of resources that can help you continue to grow your eLearning skills after the session.

    After attending this session, you will be able to:

    • Explain why following Instructional Design processes and principles improves success
    • Distinguish between high and low quality eLearning
    • Define ADDIE and describe the stages of this common Instructional Design process
    • Ask needs assessment questions that help you avoid common eLearning pitfalls
    • Write behavioral objectives that lead to measurable results
    • Describe the process of designing, storyboarding and producing eLearning
    • Describe the process of implementing and evaluating eLearning
    • List the skill sets needed for developing high quality eLearning and how to obtain them

    Description:

    Diversity, equity, and inclusion dialogue is a form of improvisational art.

This session will provide tips and tools for effectively facilitating DEI dialogues to ensure honest, heartfelt conversations and commitment to lasting behavior change.

    Applications

    • Integrate DEI dialogues into training and development activities.
    • Identify tools to facilitate meaningful DEI-related dialogues with diverse learners.
    • Learn how to handle challenging, emotionally charged situations that often arise in the midst of identity-related discourse.

    Description:

    Have you ever had this conversation with a SME (subject-matter expert)?

    SME: “This needs to be in the course.”

    You: “I’m not sure it does.”

    SME: “Yes, they definitely need to know it.”

    You: “But I’m not sure it will help them.”

    SME: “Well then at least need to be aware of it.”

    You: “Hmpfh.”

    Your learners have needs, and your SMEs have knowledge and experience. But do those two things always line up? When creating learning content, SMEs with the best intentions can end up creating content that’s long on information, short on practical application, and wrapped up in a bullet-point PowerPoint bow. The next thing you know, your learners are going to YouTube to find what they need instead.

    In this session, you’ll learn five key strategies for working more effectively with subject-matter experts to create content that sticks. You’ll gain practical insights, tips, and resources for making the most of your SME’s expertise and for harnessing that power in a productive and helpful way. You’ll walk away better able to move your online content from simply conveying information to helping your learners solve the real problems they face every day.

    You will learn to:

    • Change the focus of your efforts from the SME’s expertise to the learner’s needs.
    • Negotiate out “nice-to-know” information.
    • Help SMEs break down what they've learned over the years in a way that's helpful to others.
    • Use one simple question to determine what content should be included and what should be cut.

    Description:

    How do your employees react to compliance training? At Spectrum, their compliance training is some of the highest rated training in the company. To get there, they rethought the purpose of compliance training and then focused on why it is important to the employee and the overall user experience. This has led to a library of compliance; courses that employees enjoy taking. The Spectrum Design team will be sharing their design approach to the entire program and to individual courses.

    Description:

    Organizations don't change... the people within them do. No skill is more important in today's workplace than being able to lead change and influence others to embrace it. However, many are ill-equipped to know how to lead change and often get tripped up by their own reactions to it. This talk will provide the framework for understanding one's own reactions and preferred change style, how it "shows up", and how to leverage it effectively to help influence and lead others through change. Listeners will gain "ah-ha" insights into their own personal attitudes about Change and how these influence their own behaviors as well as those they lead.

    Description:

    Let's admit it: Most e-learning content just plain sucks. The sad reality is that most e-learning courses require learners to sit through disappointing experiences where information is poorly organized, the content isn't relevant, and the interactions seem contrived and without purpose. During this session you will explore many of the reasons why most e-learning fails and the components that contribute to bad e-learning design. You'll explore several practical methods you can immediately apply to fix your bad e-learning courses.

    Applications:

    • Understand why e-learning isn't always the answer.
    • Learn why clicking doesn't make interactivity meaningful.
    • Comprehend why good e-learning requires more than instructional design.
