    How L&D can Improve Workplace Creativity and Innovation

    In this interactive workshop, you will get to identify your own innovation strengths and preferences and experience tools to help teams ideate.

    Economical eLearning: Keeping it Cool and Quality on a Budget

    The company wants you to keep costs down. You want to keep the eLearning interesting. You really can do both if you’re willing to be a little creative.    This session is filled with tips for instructional designers, eLearning developers, project managers of learning projects, and learning leaders wanting to save money and still produce attractive and effective eLearning. Participants will discover creative ways to incorporate custom video and audio for minimal cost; where to find top-of-the-line, freely available graphics and images, and the importance of keeping content to the essential and working with solid versus fluid content to reduce edit cycles. Most importantly, you’ll come away feeling confident in your competency to cut corners on cost without compromising quality. We will see some short examples and clips of eLearning to illustrate points.

    Communicating E-learning Development Time

    How long does it take to develop an e-learning module? Do your leaders, business partners, and SMEs understand the development process and the true amount of time necessary to develop e-learning? Carol Kristensen will kick off the discussion. Please bring ideas to share if you have any.

    Join the Technology and E-learning SIG members as we explore this topic at our meeting on July 14 from 8:00-9:30 at the Iowa Corrections Learning Center, Jessie M. Parker Building, 510 E. 12th Street, Des Moines 50319 – Room 129.

    Gather and network from 8:00-8:30. Then at 8:30, Carol will begin the discussion of e-learning development time and process. As always, we will reserve time for you to bring questions and challenges to the group or share something you have recently learned that might be helpful to others.

    The date and topic for our September meeting is TBD.

    Do you face challenges or want to learn more about using technology and e-learning to support training? Then join the discussion at this week’s Technology and E-learning SIG.

    The topic(s) are set at the start of each meeting based on the members’ commitment to bring two pieces of information each month:

    • What do you need? What challenge are you facing?
    • What can you share? What have you learned that might benefit others?

    Meetings typically include 15-20 minutes of show-and-tell as follow up to the prior month’s meeting and collaborative discussion to help solve problems, spark ideas, and add to our knowledge and skills around technology and e-learning.

    This SIG meets on the second Monday of each month at 8:00, so mark your calendars now and plan to attend throughout the year.

    "Hey, you've done this for years.  You know everything you need to train the new guy."

    But what if you don't?  It's a case of "all students, no trainers!"

    Usually, trainers are asked to train in subject areas they have at least some expertise in.  Smart people with people skills are asked to train others on the job.  Good facilitators with a passion for interpersonal relationships are asked to teach team work, service skills, leadership, or communication.  

    What if you have to design training on topics you know little or nothing about?  Perhaps you have to train for jobs you've never done, technical material you haven't mastered,  financial reports that read like Greek, or worse!  The boss says, "You're a trainer, write me some training!"

    This session will provide you proven, practical tools and approaches for tackling training design and development projects on subjects you may not know a lot about.  These tools will help you design learner focused, performance based instruction that gets great results!

    WHO SHOULD ATTEND: Trainers, e learning developers, instructors, instructional designers, instructional developers, and other learning professionals who plan training programs based upon content and/or job skills they know little about.

    APPROACH: You'll learn through case studies and lots of discussion. We'll simulate a SME interview.  We'll practice using examples and samples. Also, you'll swap ideas and tips from your colleagues about great content-neutral exercises, games, practices, etc.
