    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

    Life is filled with challenges, both personally and professionally. It’s often been said that in today’s world, the only constant is change. When facing a new challenge our default reaction is not always what gets the desired results. We often focus on what this challenge “is doing to me” and the negative aspects of the situation. This new program helps each of us develop personal effectiveness with a focus on working with change and adversity in positive and productive ways.

    This new program is brought to you by TRP Enterprises. TRP has facilitated popular programs on personal effectiveness and emotional intelligence in companies like UNC Health Care, American Express and more for over twenty years. The program reveals solutions to common pitfalls we can step into when working with others and helps us collaborate, instead of clash.  It teaches skills that can help us remain creative under pressure, to fi­nd constructive ways to express ideas and build collaborative relationships. The practical focus of this program empowers us to apply our discoveries not just in the world of work, but in all aspects of life.

    Learning objectives for this event: 

    1. Create practical, personal strategies to help you manage any change or personal adversity you are facing in your career. Learn to apply those strategies for increased satisfaction and ability to manage stress.

    2. See change and adversity as powerful learning opportunities. Apply the ability to see the learning in a variety of situations, at work and at home.

    3. Increase your ability to collaborate with others. Learn to see the value in diverse perspectives that will help you facilitate greater openness to change in yourself and in others. Bring this skill back to work to enhance communications and interactions with others.

    Zooming in on Microlearning

    Microlearning is one of the top Learning Trends for 2018. We've all heard of it and maybe even tried our hand at creating bite-sized learning to solve a workplace problem or address a learning gap. In this session we will define what microlearning is, what it is not, and we'll explore examples of how it is used in companies we know. This will be a participatory session in which you'll have an opportunity to design a microlearning session as a strategy to address a learning gap in your work. You will come away with a clearer understanding of microlearning and how your ATD peers are thinking about it and using it.

    Bite-sized snacks will be served!

    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:
