    Your Portfolio is Your New Resume

    Program Description:

    The job market for learning professionals is rapidly shifting. Nowadays, more and more companies are hiring for tangible skills and talent. This means they care more about what you can offer them right now, regardless of the length of your employment history or your education credentials. As a result, in order to be competitive and land your next gig or client, it’s more important than ever that you can showcase your work, skills, and talent. To put it simply, a resume alone isn’t enough to get hired—you need a portfolio! In this session, you’ll explore why portfolios aren’t just for freelancers and why and how you should start building yours ASAP.

    After attending this session, you'll be able to...

    • Find the right tool for building your online portfolio, regardless of your skill level.
    • Optimize your portfolio to sell your skills and talents.
    • Overcome common challenges and best practices for curating your portfolio examples.

    Designing from the Heart! Learning Empathy and the User Experience

    Program Description:

    Getting to know your learner and wanting to design the best training you can for them is at the heart of a human-centered design practice called Learner Experience (LX) design. Learner Experience design focuses on developing empathy for your learners, understanding their needs, and creating a training experience that supports those needs. This practice can aid instructional designers, trainers, and developers to create more relevant and engaging trainings for their audience. However, in order to truly develop empathy for your learners, it is important to understand who they are in a way that goes beyond basic demographics. Creating Learner Personas to serve as specific representations of general groups of learners allows you to dive into their motivations, outlooks, and personalities so you can deepen your understanding and connection. In this session we will define Learner Experience and human-centered design, and discuss how it can be applied to the training lifecycle. We will also examine how Learner Personas can take audience analysis even further by cultivating a deeper understanding of your learners, which will foster empathy within your design team to help create training that is intentional and truly meaningful.

     

    Program Learning Objectives/Job Application:

    • Develop strategies for conducting in-depth audience analysis by using our Learner Persona template
    • Integrate Human Centered Design practices into your Development Process by using Learner Personas to make better informed training decisions that account for your learner's needs
    • Learn how to have intentional and purposeful conversations about learners with your team in order to create a culture of learner advocacy
    • Determine a balance between satisfying business needs and accommodating the training experience of your learners

    Outside the Box - Non-Learning Tools for Improving Your L&D Practice

    Program Description:
