    Using Storytelling to Capture Your Audience’s Interest (Competency: Training Delivery)

    We’ll read an article about storytelling and discuss how we can add stories to our training delivery. Stories are useful for facilitators and learners because they can foster authenticity as well as dialogue. Storytelling can be a savvy way for the facilitator to capture the audience’s attention. In this session, we will explore strategies to structure and deliver a story within your learning content as well as explore some dos and don’ts. Bring and share your story!

    Keeping Up with Learning Trends

    Description

    The world of learning is constantly expanding, with new technologies and trends developing every year. How do you keep up with it all? How do you decide what is worth pursuing in your work and what is better to wait and see how it develops? Harold Jarche’s Personal Knowledge Mastery framework provides a process for distilling the deluge of information available to us all into more manageable knowledge that we can apply in our work and share with others.

    Objectives

    • Describe the 3 elements of Jarche’s Personal Knowledge Mastery (PKM) framework: Seek, Sense, and Share

    • Identify at least two tools you can use to support PKM
    • List reliable sources for learning about industry trends
    • Describe strategies for building a Personal Learning Network (PLN)
    • Plan ways to share knowledge and “show your work”

    Have you ever struggled to get results from training? Popular training programs that are interactive and get great evaluations from learners can be in danger of losing their value over time. Unless you’ve worked to incorporate the training competencies into your organizational culture, the relevance, as well as the long-term business impact of the training may never materialize.

    This interactive session is a collaboration between a learning manager and a training provider. In his role managing learning programs in financial service organizations, Scot May has worked to develop competencies and translate those competencies into performance management processes. Daniel Lobb has run a certification program for Totally Responsible Person (TRP) and partnered with Scot to help certify and deliver training for Scot’s organizations. Learn what they’ve done and what they’ve learned along the way, and get ideas that you can take home to help make your training provide maximum impact.

    Learning objectives for this event: 

    1. Learn to more clearly define the training competencies that are important to your business.

    2. Understand how to incorporate those competencies into your performance management processes in order to enhance organizational culture and drive business results.

    3. Discover best practices that help keep training programs aligned with the results your business needs

    xAPI: Geek-Free & Ready to Go with Megan Torrance from Torrance Learning    

    Co-Hosted with eLearning SIG and Learning Trends SIG

    Is xAPI here to stay? This is the billion-dollar question. With any new technology, there's a small et of early adopters who take the plunge, while others wait in the wings. When you're responsible for the learning and development of a large organization, it's wise to wait and see if this is going to get traction or if it's just a well-hyped flash in the pan.

    Until recently, using xAPI meant custom programming, close work with your LRS provider, and custom reporting tools. It just wasn't scalable for enterprise-wide adoption. Today, xAPI is ready for wider adoption. We'll talk about the state of xAPI adoption and what you'll need to get started. Major courseware development tools have varying degrees of basic conformance with xAPI and can send statements to an LRS. Several LRSs are commercially available to choose from, and LMS providers are adding an LRS to their suites. Conformance specifications are evolving and more tools that previously never used SCORM are adopting xAPI.

    In this session, you will learn...

    • Convince your organization that xAPI is here to stay and it's time to begin adoption

    • Identify specific projects that are good candidates for early xAPI use

    • Outline a platforms and tools strategy for adopting xAPI

    • Work with vendors and partners to plot a course forward

    Do you write learning assessments as an afterthought to the ID process? Do you spend too much time remediating failures? Do you feel stuck using assessments as a way to “check the box” rather than truly test learning? Would you like to explore common pitfalls and learn how to write effective questions?

    You are not alone! In this interactive presentation, we will discuss the value of writing effective learning assessments. We will examine actual test questions, identifying the most common issues and best practices that can be used to write more effective quesitons.


    By the end of this interactive presentation, you will be able to:

    • Explain the purpose of learning assessments and their role in the learning process
    •  Identify common issues with test questions that use a multiple choice/multiple response format
    • Describe best practices to write “better” test questions

    Chatbots: A Practical Use of Artificial Intelligence to Aid Corporate Learning

    Chatbots are becoming more and more commonplace for consumers to help automate simple tasks and make life easier. But what about utilizing chatbots to facilitate learning?

    In this session, you will see examples of common chatbots on Facebook and Slack that are transactional and responsive in nature and contrast them with programmatic chatbots that drive a learning experience. You will also see examples of the various channels you can reach learners through a chatbot such as SMS, Facebook or even via your corporate learning mobile app.

    Finally, we'll really get your brainstorming juices flowing with lots of creative ideas on how this form of artificial intelligence can transform your digital learning infrastructure!

    For some food for thought before this session, check out Vince’s article about chatbots in TD Magazine:
