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!

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

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.
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.

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
Free to all ATD-RTA members, however we ask that you do RSVP.

Guiding e-learning evaluation through logic model with Dr. Diane Chapman and Dr. Carrol Warren
Two experts in online evaluation from the College of Education at NC State University, Dr. Diane Chapman and Dr. Carrol Warren, will discuss the utilization of logic models to evaluate e-learning. Logic models provide an effective, efficient, and consistent method for evaluating both small scale and large scale online learning environments. This presentation will allow attendees to appreciate the advantages of developing and using logic models for evaluation purposes in e-learning.
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?
By the end of this interactive presentation, you will be able to:
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:
Vince Han is the founder and CEO of Mobile Coach and a frequent speaker at conferences such as Training Conference, DevLearn, FocusOn, Online Learning, ATDTK and others. He holds an MBA from the MIT Sloan School of Management. Vince is an industry thought-leader for learning and learning technology with an emphasis on artificial intelligence and chatbot technology.
