  • 09h00-10h00: Katrina Marie Baker (USA) - Memes & Scavenger Hunts: Ten Ways to Improve Your L&D Program on a Budget

  • Is your learning and development budget missing some zeros? This session is for you. Sadly, no one will provide you with a new bank account. But you will get many budget-stretching ideas from your colleagues during this interactive session. You can still provide a great learning environment, even if you’re running short on funds!

    This session provides an overview of free and low-cost tools that enhance instructional design for many audiences and environments. We will discuss how to: 1) Engage internal subject matter experts (SMEs); 2) Create communities of practice within an organization; 3) Encourage learners to generate learning content; 4) Incorporate word clouds, memes, wikis, and discussion boards into activities and assignments; 5) Use social platforms such as Slack and Twitter to engage learners; 6) Create "mob-style" training events; 7) Incorporate scavenger hunts into virtual classes; 8) Use learning technology to enable gamification and game-based learning; 9) Track learning experiences using learning platforms and QR codes to increase efficiency; 10) Use data to prove return on investment/expectations to stakeholders and secure a higher budget for next year

    Objectives:

    • Hear about free and low-cost ways you can use to engage learners and enhance their experience
    • Learn "why" an instructional designer should use out-of-the-box teaching methods to engage the learner, and understand learning design concepts like diversity of thought and social collaboration
    • Share ideas with your colleagues and hear their ideas as well

  • 10h30-12h00: Jo Cook (UK) - Digital Body Language in Online Communication
  • We know how important reading body language is in any type of communication – but what about when it’s different in a video call, or there’s none at all when we can’t see the people we are teaching in a remote classrooms, or we are reading something on social media? It can feel like a huge amount of what we normally rely on has been taken away from us and there’s nothing to replace it. This is where live online learning expert Jo Cook will discuss non-verbal cues in communication.

    Take-aways:

    • Awareness of what Digital Body Language is in modern communication
    • Apply Digital Body Language to the design and facilitation of live online sessions
    • Apply Digital Body Language when using forums and social media

  • 13h00-14h00: Andy Lancaster (UK) - Curation for learning ... getting to grips with making it really work!

    Take-aways:

    • Establish why curation is a vital component for learning and performance improvement
    • Define what recent research reveals about the use of curation for learning
    • Explore an end-to-end curation process: Champion, Unearth, Refine, Aggregate, Transfer and Embed

  • 16h30-17h15: Karl Kapp (USA) - Digital Games for Role-Plays, Attribute Sorting and Learner Engagement

  • Across the globe, our meetings, one-on-one conferences and even cocktail parties are virtual. We are now spending more and more time statically interacting with our colleagues through webcams.

    But how do you fit interactivity and games into a digital training session? It’s not as hard as you think. Join this session and play a game. Participate in digital decision making, collaboration and learning. Become engaged as you learn how to incorporate simple but effective interactive elements into your online sessions.

    Take-aways:
