    CHAPTER LEARNING EVENT

    Training Delivery

    Creating an Interactive Training Environment

    Technical training can often feel dry and boring, especially when learners aren't highly motivated to participate. Have you struggled to capture their attention, engage their minds, or even earn their trust? Connections are at the heart of learning transfer and are a critical component of learning application, but how do you create those connections?

    You have several potent tools in your arsenal—purposeful activities, interactive learning, and storytelling. Using these together will capture your listeners' attention in ways that will aid in retention and motivate action.

    Join us as we apply purposeful activities to a SMART Goals training case study. From there, we'll explore storytelling and learn how to craft narratives to improve learner competencies and create an engaged environment.

    Bring your most mundane presentation with you—you know the one—that you want to liven up. In our workshop, we'll work together to give it color and breathe more life into it the next time you deliver it.

    WORKSHOP

    Instructional Design & Learning Technologies

    Mastering Graphic Design on a Shoestring Budget

    Visual design and design thinking are crucial skills for every instructional designer. In this workshop, you’ll focus on how to implement graphic design best practices when funding is limited. We'll review strategic design processes that you can apply to all aspects of your learning solutions from PPTs to eLearning courses to job aids. To solidify your understanding of these crucial design principles—like formatting, fonts, color theory, and more—we’ll work through a number of hands-on projects that will give you real experience that you can bring directly back to work the next day, all to create a more productive work environment and improve ROI while making your work life more satisfying than ever before.

    NETWORKING EVENT

    Chapter Summer Networking Event

    Join us for a morning of networking and service at Cannon Greens Community Garden to learn more about Wasatch Community Garden's community outreach—their Green Team Farm Project is a farm-based job training program that provides opportunities for women who are facing homelessness to learn basic organic gardening techniques, intensive vegetable production strategies, small farm management expertise, and other job skills. 

    Afterward, we'll spend some time working together in the garden. Depending on their needs that day, we may be weeding, double digging, mulching, creating garden art, painting, planting, harvesting, or cleaning out plot spaces.

    A light continental breakfast will be served.

    The mission of Wasatch Community Gardens (WCG) is to empower people of all ages and incomes to grow and eat healthy, organic, local food.

    WCG has served Wasatch Front residents since 1989 with the belief that the quality of a community is directly related to the quality of its food. WCG offers a spectrum of dynamic programs for youth and adults aimed at improving access to healthy, organic, and local food.

    WCG not only provides garden space where people can grow their own food, but WCG also provides afterschool youth gardening activities, summer camps, field trips, educational workshops, and community events to empower individuals and families to successfully grow, harvest, preserve, and prepare seasonal foods. As interest in urban agriculture continues to grow, WCG works with local communities to meet the demand for additional land and educational resources to further remove barriers to fresh produce and quality food.

    WORKSHOP

    Instructional Design & Learning Technologies

    Developing eLearning from Theory to Activity

    Although it might seem like a simple skill jump from developing a well-prepared face-to-face training program to an equal online presentation, usually the success lies in the preparation and adaptation of your materials, delivery style, and expected outcomes. The concept of thoughtful program development using an ADDIE-like model is still critical to training success—no matter what the delivery vehicle.

    In this workshop, we’ll return to adult learning fundamentals to explore the principles that will increase your eLearning design's impact before you even put pen to paper (or cursor to screen). From there, we'll implement storyboarding best practices to convert and build activity template you can take back to work to build your own improved and theoretically sound eLearning courses.

    WORKSHOP

    Evaluating Learning Impact

    Improving Performance with Better Learning Measurement 

    Over the last 15 years, L&D professionals have been told to focus on big data and learning analytics and that doing so earns a seat at the table. The result? Talent developers have made a dutiful effort to collect data and generate reports. The unintended consequences of this are low response rates and limited use of the data to improve performance.

    Join us to learn how you can fuse Net Promoter System into a simpler measurement process that can allow you to act on your data and see improvements. Glean insight to shift the conversation from proving your value to improving business performance. Consider a fresh approach to shift the mindset from measurement and reporting to performance improvement.
