Thursday, 10/15 Meeting:

Training Request? Ask Questions First

For this evening meeting, Dick will be doing his most popular short session called “Training Request? Ask Questions First.” Participants will learn how to handle a variety of training requests in a way that yields better results for the participant and the client. 

Participants will develop skills using a re-framing role play exercise featuring eight tested principles. Valuable feedback will be provided by the entire audience and the instructor. The results are effective because real world project examples are used for the role-play scenarios.

10/16 All-Day SuperSession:

Three Core Principles of Structural Design

Instructional designers get pressed to do things in a hurry. I know from experience, no one calls an outside vendor when they have plenty of time, and I’ve been in that role for thirty years. I also learned through sometimes bitter experience, which things will make a project take longer and which ones will make it go more smoothly. 

In this workshop, you will get hands-on practice using examples from your own work to master what I consider to be the three core principles of instructional design. These are the steps you don’t want to leave out, no matter how big a hurry you’re in. They each have the potential to save you from the time and pain of rework.
