This month I want to have an open forum where YOU do the talking!
Last month we talked a little bit about Instructional Design. It is a HUGE subject and obviously one can only scratch the surface in 2 hours.
There were a lot of comments about the things that we didn't touch on that I know you have issues with (I have issues with them, too!). Things like:
• Working with SMEs
• mLearning and other technology-related considerations
• Graphics and use of visuals
• Implementation considerations
• Evaluating learning
• Specific tool-related issues - how to do a certain thing
• and others
About half of you last month indicated that you have 10+ years of experience in Instructional Design. There is no reason for me to do all the talking with all that experience in the room.
So, this month I am not going to come with a presentation. I am going to open the floor and we'll discuss the pressing issues and questions you have. What are you struggling with? What do you need help with on a project? How do you do some of the things from the list above effectively and what has worked for you that you can share (and what hasn't worked!)?
I hope that you will find it interesting and informative. It's something different than we've done in the past but I think this is one of the reasons you joined the group. I want you to get what you need regarding e-learning and training and I know there a lot of people in this group that have a lot of good answers and information to share and all of us can benefit. I want you to share it.
So, come prepared with your questions and be ready to talk!
It is suggested that you bring a laptop or tablet.
I am going to try an audio conference for the September meeting using my ATT audio conference information. The room has a Polycom with speakers and microphones so please dial-in and join us for a voice-only conference call for our Open Forum.
The dial-in information is:
