Podcast: The L&D Forecast

Emily Sheetz launched a new podcast L&D Forecast which is easy to listen to and provides a fresh perspective of what to consider and where to look in the world of learning. I’ve had the pleasure of knowing and working with Emily for over 10 years now and have seen her grow into a master storyteller with a creative edge that helps an audience connect with her ideas.

Check out her podcasts and you can connect with Emily on LinkedIn. You can also view Emily’s writings on Medium. You can listen to Emily’s fun interview with me that went so fast I can’t wait to do it again.

#IDIODC CrowdCast on Virtual Training Tips and Tricks With Karen Hyder

Got a chance to listen to Karen Hyder on the #IDIODC CrowdCast. Karen has facilitated and assisted in developing The Learning Guilds online conferences and sessions. I’ve been lucky enough to have been coached by Karen over the years and appreciate all the tips, feedback, and guidance she has provided.

She shared the following tips:

  • Prior to the event, align with your participants and provide a list of expectations and have them commit to participating, focusing and interacting with you (the facilitator)
  • Think about a timed block and build in breaks if you need a longer session.
  • Everyone should be off mute, use video when necessary but not always needed. Think about your use case and what makes sense. Recommend at the opening.
  • As a general guideline, try to get participants involved every 2-3 minutes.
  • In the beginning, have them share a little about themselves, prefers this idea where people can share via chat vs using the time to go around the room in traditional training classrooms.
  • Prior to starting, play slides, rotating that provide best practices, how to solve issues, and upcoming things to remember.
  • Think about providing reading, video, or additional delivery of content prior to the interactive session so that everyone can take advantage of the LIVE time.
  • Have a backup plan, PLAN B, from a second internet connection (you can use your MiFi or phone) with a backup computer and headset to minimize disruptions or delays in your session.
  • Think about how you can educate and motivate your audience to make a difference.

Listen to all the DomainKnow #IDIODC casts hosted by Brent Schlenker and Chris Van Wingerden. They do a new cast every Tuesday for 30 minutes.

There were over 50 tables to visit, and you learn about this year’s favorites on a complimentary Best of DemoFest Webinar on Thursday, April 12 at 10:00 AM PT.

We’ll be presenting our project which won an award for Best Social Collaboration Solution for Community Dashboard for C-Suite Idea Exchange.

Inspiration: Getting Over It – Focusing on Frustrating the User

Most games today, focus on telling a story, providing a puzzle or provide you with a challenge. As you advance, you can level up, saving your progress or restarting from the last point. This new game by Bennett Foddy offers the complete opposite where he provides impossible gameplay and forces you to lose everything and start over. Good, bad, or just something you need to try because it is just different. Why not?

5 Must Do’s @  eLearning Guild’s #DevLearn 2017

Excited to be attending and participating in this week’s DevLearn. If you are new or experienced attendee, 5 reminders of things to check out at the event.

HYPERDRIVE – Tuesday 3.30-6.30pm, this is a fun in-depth look at several select projects where you learn about the challenge, problems, outcomes and lessons learned. I love this session herding about what worked, what didn’t; and seeing real projects and thinking what I might apply to a future project. Each project is scored by a panel and 3 projects will be selected to present a more in-depth version on Wed.

Morning Buzz 7:30 – 8:15 – Get up and connect with the community about the latest topics and trends to have a conversation and share your insights, Wed-Friday.

DevLearn HyperDrive Showcase 1.15-2.15pm – Whether you were able to attend HyperDrive or not, check out this session for a little more time and insight on the winning projects. Must watch for ideas and inspiration.

The Guild’s keynotes have been amazing in recent years, but especially loved Glen Keane earlier this year at Learning Solutions and walked away inspired and excited about what we do.   Whether you have seen him or not, if you want to be inspired and get a creative boost attend his keynote 4.15-5.15 on Embracing Technology-Based Creativity.

DemoFest – With each eLearning Guild major conference, attending DemoFest on Thursday evening from 4-6 will showcase over 80 tables where you can learn about projects that were using in VR, Mobile, Onboarding, Academic among other themes. This is a great opportunity to connect with peers and learn about what they did, what worked and what didn’t and while listening and viewing think about what you like, what you don’t and what might apply to your next project.

Hope to connect, share and swap notes!
