For Community Day Spring 2021 we're celebrating with Story.
At the core of The Training, Learning, and Development Community is Story. It's what connects us to our careers, our learners, and to each other. And together, we're closing the chapter on what was a very difficult 2020, and moving into a story of recovery and new beginnings.
So join us for another Community Day of L&D Professionals and learn from some of the best in our Community. Reflect on the past and activate your future. Start a new story Friday, April 30th at our Spring Community Day.
We know that stories are great for training. Instructional Story Design offers a clear path to discovering, designing and delivering those stories. But there is another opportunity at hand. Every day. All around us. We impact the lives of people. Rance helps us to see beyond the use of stories at work as strictly a training tool, but as the language of humans who need connection, inspiration, guidance and persuasion. Join this opening session for an inspirational and practical start to a transformed workspace, where stories are always welcomed.
We often hear and read about how to become an expert, a guru, a specialist, etc. But no one ever talks about how to be an amateur. Maybe because the word, 'amateur' makes us think of someone inexperienced, unskilled, unprofessional, or a beginner. But there’s more to the word, 'amateur'. This session will focus on how adopting a beginner's mindset and practicing being an amateur can offer an incredible advantage when trying to uncover richer stories about people, products, and processes.
Every one of our learners has their own story which affects their understanding of the world around them. As instructional designers, this can present challenges when creating content that meets the learners where they are. This discussion will look at the ways we can help our learners gain the most value from our courses, simply by answering six easy questions.
Have you ever faced rejection in your career? If you have, or, if you're facing some form of rejection right now, don't worry--you're in good company. In this session, you'll crossover from the sidelines of a missed opportunity onto the full-court of what's next.
Branching scenarios can provide learners with opportunities to practice making decisions in relevant contexts. However, they can also be time-consuming and complex to plan, build, and evaluate. In this session, we'll talk about ways to manage the complexity of branching scenarios. We'll examine every stage of development, reviewing ways to streamline the process of analysis, writing, building, and reviewing. You'll leave this discussion with practical ideas for making branching scenarios easier to create.
Why do stories work so well to motivate learners? It's because we're wired to insert ourselves in the middle of the action and experience every story as if it were our own. This survival technique is an ancient adaptation that helped us survive a very hostile climate and pass down our truths before we had invented writing. When you understand the neuroscience of stories, you'll realize how you can use them to enhance learning and on-the-job performance. You'll also learn how to craft effective learning stories and how to avoid the top 3 storytelling mistakes that turn learners off.
