This fall, I’ll be speaking at two events: ATD Core4: Toronto, and DevLearn 2018. I’m super excited for both events, and I’ve included a brief synopsis of each speaking engagement below.
At ATD Core4: Toronto, I will be presenting on Building Your E-Learning Portfolio.
Regardless of your job title, if you’re working in the e-learning field, particularly in a production capacity, you need an e-learning portfolio. Why? Because it will work for you! Building your e-learning portfolio doesn’t need to be an overwhelming task. This session will equip you for the portfolio-building journey, and you’ll learn insider information about what works well, what doesn’t work at all, and lessons learned in building an e-learning portfolio.
Within this session, you will learn about:
- The importance of an e-learning portfolio
- Common challenges in building an e-learning portfolio and how to overcome them
- How to build out and promote your portfolio
At DevLearn 2018, I’ll be delivering a pre-conference certificate workshop:
Introduction to Instructional Design
Most learning experiences, including instructor-led and online courses, webinars, and workshops, have one thing in common: An instructional designer (ID) was involved. However, many instructional designers fall into the role accidentally, being assigned the role more because of subject matter expertise than expertise in ID. Many people have the responsibility of designing learning experiences without the training on how to properly execute instructional design.
In this workshop, you will explore the world of instructional design and build skills that you can immediately apply in your work. You will examine learning theories, instructional strategies, and a systematic approach to determining training needs. You will practice designing, developing, and implementing appropriate solutions to those needs, and evaluating the success of the end product. By attending this workshop, you will gain practical guidance to help form a greater understanding of instructional design as a field, while completing collaborative activities that will help participants apply their understanding of concepts learned.
In this workshop, you will learn:
- Principles and processes of instructional design
- About the concept of instructional design models, and how they support pedagogical best practices for teaching and learning
- How to create your own instructional design model
- How to conduct an evaluation of an online course, based on your understanding of instructional design principles and processes
