Innovative Learning Design Using New Technologies
How do we design a learning strategy that is both engaging and meets the needs of a particular business with emerging technology? Mobile communication devices and software, in particular, are providing WLP professionals new and powerful tools to advance learning in the organizations they serve – but only if we master how to use them and employ them creatively.
This mini-workshop, part of the Chapter’s Innovation Initiative, is your opportunity to explore these important new trends and strategies and how they can accelerate organizational change.
Tuesday October 16
Program: 8 AM - 9:30am

This workshop is part of ASTDps’ Innovation Initiative series, a service of the Creativity and Innovation SIG. The goal of the Innovation Initiative is to “Establish the learning foundations to make the Puget Sound the World's innovation leader.” The series presents programs on both how to make organizations more innovative through learning, and how to make the learning function itself more innovative.
The Initiative draws its inspiration from several sources. First and primarily, from National ASTD’s 2011 white paper that states "The learning function can and SHOULD play a critical role in developing and sustaining the innovative culture that is the hallmark of successful organizations.” Second, from the State of Washington’s official economic development policy to “Make Washington the most attractive, creative and fertile environment for innovation in the world as a means of achieving long-term global competitiveness, prosperity and economic opportunity for all the state citizens.” Third, from the increasing recognition and calls by business executives, government officials, and learning thought leaders to promote innovation as the best means to grow the economy and solve pressing social and environmental problems.
