Breaking training development
(Preview) - Breaking Training Development Project Rules
In 1969, the Project Management Institute (PMI) was founded.  Project Management specialists were  building roads, buildings, the new 'computers' and lunar modules. The AT&T telephone operators still plugged wires into boards to transfer calls!  Paper memos slowly communicated work to be done. Multitasking was unheard of.  The PMBOK (Project Management Body of Knowledge) established a standardized and control-focused approach to doing projects, much like ADDIE brought to the new field of training.    Now, 45 years later our work looks more like a Flashmob: interruptions, unending work, dysfunctional multi-tasking and highly matrixed organizations.  Everyone needs everyone to do their pile of projects.  We have to embrace the structure of the PMBOK while looking at our project artifacts and tools in a new way.

Write it right
(Preview) - Write it Right! Use a Seven Step Process to Develop Learning Activities
With so many learning experiences, techniques and devices to choose from, the course designer can be like a gourmet cook, carefully choosing just the right combination to achieve the desired results.  There is no excuse for the overuse of lecture as the primary and often only technique.   What is the best activity?  There is no answer to this question.  It depends on your purpose.  Learning experiences may be classified by purpose, although a particular technique may have multiple applications.  Most activities are best used in combination with other techniques. What is the worst activity?  The one that is used all the time, whatever it is!   This workshop suggests a seven-step process to develop learning materials, identifies a “best use” for a variety of learning experiences, and presents a proven approach to designing discovery learning by writing adult learning steps to process any learning activity.

Developing micro learning for learners
(Preview) - Developing Micro-Learning for Learners on the Go
What is behind social learning, mobile learning, AppleWatch, and other Internet tools?  These “access- anytime-anywhere”  tools and solutions are MICRO-LEARNING. It is  micro feedback, micro-application, micro-goals, micro-games, micro-exercises, micro-search and other micro forms. Micro-learning is an ubiquitous part of our day to day learning, but we don’t notice them. They are “hiding in plain sight”, blending with the background of our daily grind. The challenge is that training, learning and performance support experts, specialists and consultants focus on BIG LEARNING.  Somehow they feel guilty when they design and deliver MICRO LEARNING because micro-learning is minute and hard to capture and produce. Furthermore, most of our tools, software, design process and delivery systems like LMSs are intended for big content. This is unfortunate since there  are tremendous opportunities to optimize micro-learning: short, simple, fluid, easy to produce and at lower costs. In this webinar you will learn the essence of micro-learning design, delivery and applications. Topic coverage:   Why is instant, short and micro learning gaining popularity? What are the drivers of micro-learning? Cases, examples and illustrations What are distinct differences between big content and micro-content design and delivery? What is the 6-Step Micro-Learning Design Model? How do you find and win opportunities to micro-test your micro-learning? Demos and examples will be provided.

Build trust to improve performance
(Preview) - Build Trust to Improve Performance
Lack of trust is the root cause of major performance gaps in the workplace. A profusion of data from field research confirm that distrust reduces morale, accountability, and engagement and increases fear, suspicion, and duplication in all types of organizations. Most performance consultants believe that trust building is not a valid intervention. It is—and we can share proven principles and procedures that help us improve trust as a first step in increasing business results. In this interactive webinar, Thiagi and Tracy will use four new LOLAs (Live Online Learning Activities) to keep you engaged in the learning process.
