It's Not a Performance: Strategies and Tips to Transition Learners from Audience Members to Participants 

It's every instructor's fear—What if you get up in front of them and they just watch? Blank stares. You ask, “How many of you blah blah blah?" And they all sit there. In silence. The entire burden of learning falling on your shoulders as the instructor.

Don will share strategies and tips you can take back to your classroom to engage your passive and quiet audiences so that they interact and invest themselves more fully in their own learning.

Don Heins has over 30 years' experience in foodservice operations and distribution creating and delivering both leadership development and sales training programs. He was most recently director of sales at Nicholas and Company in Salt Lake City. He has a passion for identifying and nurturing those individuals who wish to lead others through integrity and empathy.

Through his company, Leadership Training Consultants, he assists companies in developing and implementing leadership development and sales training programs.

Originally from Southern California, Don has been living in Salt Lake City with his wife and two daughters for 22 years.

Expert Panel: Choosing the Best LMS for You

At our conference in October, one of the more popular topics on our ATD Areas of Expertise Gallery Walk was about how to choose an LMS. We absolutely understand why this question shows up on a regular basis, because a learning management system can help you to effectively deliver, maintain, track, and report your organization’s learning, but there just seems to be so much involved. (And when it comes down to it, many of us could live perfectly contented lives never setting up an LMS.) 

Come listen to our panel of LMS experts as they ease your concerns and talk about what you need to know when choosing the best LMS for your organization and learners. 

Do you have specific questions you want our panel to address? Send them to Yolanda.
