    Immerse learners in real-world scenarios to accelerate expertise development and increase learning transfer.

    Learn how scenario-based e-learning can accelerate job competency.


    Course Info

    Taking on new and often unanticipated workplace challenges requires problem-solving and critical-thinking skills. Traditional training that uses a directive approach, while useful for procedural learning, lacks what is needed to build problem-solving skills for those in contemporary job roles. In addition, some work skills cannot be practiced at all on the job (due to safety or other high-risk adverse consequences), while others can only be learned over a long period of time.

    Scenario-based e-learning (SBeL)—also known as problem-based learning or whole task learning—is a highly interactive course design that puts the learner in the role of a problem solver responding to realistic workplace problems or situations. This proven method of scenario planning builds critical thinking skills and expertise in on-the-job tasks, especially those that may be unsafe or too infrequent to learn in the workplace.

    WHY SHOULD I ATTEND?

    • Identify when SBeL is most effective and apply the process for designing and creating successful scenario-based e-learning that accelerates job competency.
    • View examples of SBeL from a variety of industries.
    • Identify the key questions about course structure and development to address in SBeL designs.

    What You Will Learn

    • Identify the key features of a scenario-based e-learning design.
    • Summarize evidence and rationale for a scenario-based e-learning course in your organization.
    • Identify appropriate tasks and objectives for a scenario-based e-learning lesson.
    • Complete a design plan for a scenario-based e-learning lesson.
    • Draft a course structure diagram and storyboards for the project lesson.

    Who Should Attend

    This program is suitable for anyone who has designed or developed traditional e-learning and is looking for alternative approaches to build critical thinking skills or accelerate workplace expertise. It is also useful for individuals who have or are starting a scenario-based e-learning program, or who are exploring the potential of the approach. In-depth knowledge of programming or e-learning design is not necessary.

    ATD education programs are designed primarily for learning professionals—trainers, instructional designers, and organization development practitioners—but also greatly benefit anyone within an organization who is responsible for developing others, from managers to human resources specialists.

    Did you know that about 45% of Americans make resolutions for the New Year? Unfortunately, about 22% of resolutions fail after about a week, 40% after a month, 50% after 3 months, 60% after 6 months, and only about 8% ultimately accomplish them. 

    So how do more of us join those 8%?  What lessons can we learn from them? In this interactive session, we'll discuss how elite goal-setters stay focused and complete the objectives they set to achieve.

    Austin Bauer will lead us in this interactive session on how to avoid the distractions, stay focused and achieve the goals we set for ourselves. Join us and put yourself on the path to a successful 2020!  

    At this session  you will:

    • Determine the goals you want to set for 2020
    • Recognize and avoid fear-based responses
    • Learn how to stay the course in stressful situations
    • Come away with tips and resources to enhance your career

    Technology is evolving the way people learn and the way they work.

    You’re invited to embrace this change at an experience that meets you at your level and shows you the path forward. Whether you’re looking for new ways to use the technology you have or different solutions to achieve better results, the all-new TK will deliver.

    We’ve redesigned it to provide education in various formats, creating an immersive experience with you in the driver’s seat. You’ll have the opportunity to choose how you learn best, whether from traditional lecture-style sessions, hands-on instruction, or experimentation and co-creation with your peers.

    At TK, you will not be a passive attendee. You will be an active participant, sharing your knowledge and experience and making meaningful connections. Each day will build upon the previous, so that you’ll walk away with practical solutions you can implement immediately, not just a bunch of notes. You won’t find a traditional expo here either. You’ll have the option to meet with suppliers on your terms and to explore, in depth, the choices that make the most sense for your work. Join us as we embark on a learning experience unlike any other at the all-new TechKnowledge.

    How do you establish the “right” learning strategy in today’s Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, and Ambiguous (VUCA) organization? What are learning leaders looking for from their teams, their learners and their vendor partners that will help build sustainable impact on their businesses?

    Every organization and industry has unique characteristics that inform the strategy behind their learning and development efforts. At Panera, these characteristics include:

    • Moving from a public, founder-led company to a privately held corporation
    • An industry that celebrates when turnover is below 100% annually
    •  A massively distributed, deskless hourly workforce (140k and growing)
    •  Significant churn of senior executives (3 CEOs in 18 months)
    • Brand threatening external crisis ranging from eColi to data security breaches…
    • And an unwavering commitment to become a disruptive force for good through our food
    • This discussion will pull the curtain back on how learning strategy is really made and help you think through what you can do to help the modern learning function succeed.

    Key Takeaways:

    • What factors learning leaders consider when building a strategy
    • Investigative methods to help ensure leadership buy-in for training initiatives
    • What the learning team should be thinking and doing to maximize their contributions and grow their own careers
    • How leaders see the role of vendor partners in delivering value through the learning function
    • A look at some of the training methods and techniques Panera uses to address the challenges of their industry

    Five interesting facts about diversity*:

    1. Ethnically diverse companies are 35% more likely to outperform other companies...

      Yet studies show that resumes submitted with with non-white sounding names are less likely to get a callback.

    2. Gender diverse companies are 15% more likely to outperform the average company...

      Yet there are fewer Fortune 500 CEOs who are women (4.1%) than those named David (4.5%) or John (5.3%). Two single male names outnumber an entire gender!

    3. Diverse companies bring in more revenue...

      Actually, 15 times more sales revenue than companies with the lowest levels of diversity.

    4. 83% of millennials are more engaged at work when they believe their company fosters an inclusive culture.

    5. Diversity fosters more creativity and innovation in the workplace...

       When people with different skill sets, backgrounds, and experiences are brought together in one workspace, it leads to more effective problem-solving. Similarly, diversity breeds more creative and innovative approaches to business. According to a 2011 Forbes study, 85 percent of 321 large global enterprises (companies with at least $500 million in annual revenue) agreed that diversity is crucial to creativity and innovation in the workplace.

    Come learn from Dr. Shawn Andrews, expert in the field of training and diversity and published author of "The Power of Perception: Leadership, Emotional Intelligence, and the Gender Divide.", how training and development can support diversity to benefit your organization.

    Key Takeaways

    1. Examine barriers that contribute to the leadership gender gap
    2. Identify emotional intelligence attributes and their impact on leadership
    3. Explore how gender differences impact perception and promotion
    4. Leverage organizational approaches to be more diverse and inclusive
    5. Apply practical strategies to advance your career and leadership opportunities

    From Articulate to Augmented reality, choosing which e-learning product to use for a specific job is a challenging task. Many of us default to what we know, or what our organization has always used, but this lack of adaptability can be limiting and costly. There are more than 110 e-learning tools out there, all claiming to be the silver-bullet solution for every online learning situation. The truth is that there is no single product that fits every project, and you can limit costs and development time by selecting the right tool for a specific job. This interactive presentation will teach you how to select the most cost-effective e-learning tool, based on instructional methods and content requirements. Employing these practices will help you create engaging education for your learners and stay up-to-date on new technologies, while not breaking the bank.

    By the end of the presentation attendees will be able to:

    1.     Provide examples of instructional methods used in effective
    e-learning.

    2.     Select instructional methods and identify e-learning requirements based on content.

    3.     Compare and contrast different types of e-learning design tools through rapid prototyping.

    4.     Create a basic cost-benefit analysis of a selected e-learning design tool.
