 Using Improv Skills with AI for Content Creation

Virtual Event

ATD Capability Model: 
Professional: Instructional Design
Professional: Technology Application
Personal: Lifelong Learning


Join us on an exciting journey where imagination meets technology. This is no ordinary workshop. We'll dive into the world of AI and apply it to real-time instructional design, leaning on improvisation skills and our innovative "TheaterThink" framework. Participants will use AI tools like ChatGPT to create dynamic course content from scratch. We'll explore how to generate practical learning objectives, assessments, and even personas in real time. We'll demonstrate how to navigate the AI development process, and attendees will be actively involved, suggesting ideas, and guiding the direction of the content creation. You'll leave with a clear understanding of how AI can revolutionize content creation and with a tangible product you can take away and build upon.

Prior experience with prompt engineering or AI is totally unnecessary. All you need to bring is your creativity and willingness to experiment.
