     ATDps: November 2018 South Sound Chapter Meeting


    Action, Story and Context


    EVENT DESCRIPTION

    When you need to engage eyeballs on the screen, you need to keep things moving. Animated scenes help to tell a story that people remember, but many corporate e-learning developers don’t have the experience in advanced tools like PowToons, Captivate, and CrazyTalkAnimator to bring characters to life.

    In this session, guest facilitator and master story crafter, Katie Stroud, will show you ways to animate your message and create characters that come to life. She’ll engage you in a live demonstration and build talking characters using your voice. Bring a computer and download the free version of CrazyTalk Animator to follow along. No experience required.


    Key Takeaways:

    • Explore reasons to animate your content.
    • Discuss technology options and hacks for animation.
    • Participate in a live demo for building animated characters and scenes.

    Katie Stroud 

    Katie Stroud, writer, speaker and consultant, has been designing instruction for over 13 years, mostly in the high-tech industry. Katie founded Incremental Success in 2012 to help her clients design a story of success within their organizations. Follow Katie at IncrementalSuccess.com to watch these stories unfold.

    Building a Learning Ecosystem: What You Need to Know


    EVENT DESCRIPTION

    Online and social learning reduces the cost of training, expands the ability to reach a larger event for your content, and increases the speed at which learning experiences can be accessed and offered. However, because of these growing complexities, it’s increasingly important to ensure you’re looking at both how these ever-increasing types of content interconnect and how your learning architecture scales with the business needs of your organization. We will explore social platforms; performance support platforms; eLearning, video, and mobile learning; learning management systems and HRIS system integration.


    Learning objectives:

    • How learning paths will push people past compliance and “required” learning
    • How new platforms exist to give employees the opportunity to innovate through enhanced collaboration with peers
    • Allow learners to see new ideas emerge through informal learning activities
    • Explore the link between performance and learning in systems.
    • How using both asynchronous and synchronous content can give additional flexibility to your ecosystem.
    • How to prepare yourself for continued technological evolution.

    Darren Nerland, Sr Learning Development Manager, Amazon

    Darren works on disruptive, innovative, and emergent digital learning technologies and methodologies, and aligns key leaders and stakeholders on the implementation of learning initiatives for the enterprise. He is an expert technologist with a demonstrable track record of bringing complex learning systems from requirements through design into scalable production.

    Leveraging Assessment Tools for Maximum Potential 


    EVENT DESCRIPTION

    Whether you are working with change management, coaching, or even needing innovation, having good tools to use with your clients and employees helps save time and builds trust. In this dynamic virtual chapter meeting, we will focus on Self-assessment, 360 tools and the benefits that they provide.

They will also present on the Conflict Dynamics Profile® (CDP) tool which they successfully use with various organizations and one-on-one with private clients. The CDP is a powerful assessment instrument which helps managers and employees deal with conflict behaviors in the workplace.
