    Learning Content Curation: Successes & Lessons Learned


    As companies struggle to create the right learning content at the speed the market needs it, learning content curation is growing more and more popular. This interactive session will explore how to leverage curation as a learning organization and how to drive crowd-sourced curation to optimize a culture of learning and teaching. In addition to industry best practices, Jami will walk through Slalom’s curation approach (including the launch of Workday Learning), successes, and lessons learned.

    You’ll leave the session with:

    • A better understanding of learning content curation approaches
    • Considerations for implementing crowd-sourced curation
    • Specific ideas for incorporating more learning curation in your organization

    This program will focus on the Instructional Design ATD competency.

     ATDps: April 2018 Chapter Meeting

    Workplace Stories: Designing Engagement into Your Training Programs


    We've all sat through sessions intended to convince us that we need to use stories in our learning programs. They try to teach us how to develop a story, wrap training in a story, or how to tell the story effectively. Stories are effective in learning because our brains are designed to receive stories. But what if your entire learning program was a story instead of just learning content with some stories sprinkled in?

    Story has the power to move people and even change the world right from where you are at work. Learn specific techniques for an engagement design process using elements of story and how it differs from simply adding stories to your training.

    This chapter meeting will focus on the Instructional Design and Training Delivery segments of ATD's overall competency model.

    Katie Stroud has been designing instruction for over 13 years, usually in the high-tech industry. Frustrated with the dullness and ineffectiveness of training as both a developer and a participant, she felt there had to be a better way. In her observations she noticed two things: first, that people were either a catalyst or a barrier to success, and second, that no one could be successful on their own. Then she realized that story, designed well, had the power to change all that…

    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.
