    Hosted by our online production partners at Training Umbrella, the ATDKC Fall Conference will broaden and deepen your awareness of talent development innovations amidst tremendous change! In challenging times like these, it’s important to keep learning and growing so we can address what the future will bring.

    Join us online for our monthly Chapter Meeting:

    Maximizing the Learning in your Diversity & Inclusion Sessions

    Focusing on the personal dimension, Lively Paradox is a program that takes the most difficult part of diversity conversations to a personal level. This work occurs in private settings where it should be. Helping people acknowledge the real truths is not successfully accomplished in group settings. For this reason, we focus on using post work and virtual options to handle the most tender parts of the conversation and allow private time for reflection which is one of the best ways for adults to make sense of the role they play in creating an inclusive workplace culture and climate.  

    Learning Objectives

    • Change mindsets about how to teach about diversity & inclusion in practical ways 
    • Identify ways to reduce shame, blame and judgement in diversity sessions
    • Explore the unique shift that is important to make in order to tackle issues of race and equity 

    Dr. Nicole D. Price gets it.

    She understands that if leadership is anything, it is personal, and that everyone can be a great leader — everyone can lead his or her own, whole life. So she gets personal. Dr. Price’s transparency allows others to learn from her mistakes and helps them avoid the same pitfalls. She gets real. She will tell you, yes, having differences within a team can be harder, but that hard work can really pay off — both professionally and personally.  And she gets wise. She’ll tell you, in a heartbeat, how she’s gotten a few things wrong over the years, but a little grace and some solid coaching saved her. 

    Can you make mistakes and still be an awesome leader? Is it possible to lead effectively with so many personalities on one team? Can you genuinely lead people and still have a decent life and energy left to live it? If you ask Dr. Price, the answer is absolutely yes.

    Through leadership development, coaching, consulting, keynotes, and other resources, Dr. Price encourages and enables others to live their lives in excellence. Her energetic and engaging sessions leave participants with strategies and specific tools that they can apply right away. Her lively presentation style garners rave reviews and, very often, an invitation to return.

    Dr. Price received her B.S. in chemical engineering from North Carolina A&T University, her master’s degree in adult education from Park University, and her doctorate in leadership and management from Capella University.

    • Learners will be able to identify ways to help their teammates achieve the goals of the activities they will complete.
    • Learners will build trust and bonds with their new team and utilize this experience back in their workplace with their work teams.

    The Cost of Mentoring Programs: What is the Real ROI?

    Mentoring programs can have a great impact on an organization and can be very rewarding. Improved employee engagement, a rich pipeline of talent, and increased production are just a few benefits of implementing a mentoring program. Though there are a number of rewards, the process can be costly and timely. Because of this, organizations will need to determine the impact and ROI of their mentoring programs. Join LaKisha C.

    During this presentation, we will discuss:

    • Differences between sponsorship and mentoring in an organization
    • How to implement a successful mentoring program
    • Benefits of informal mentoring programs when formal programs are not an option
    • How to implement a program in a virtual setting 
    • Methods to evaluate the impact of mentoring programs

    Streamlining Branching Scenario Planning and Design

    Branching scenarios can be a great solution for giving people an opportunity to practice making relevant decisions. While they can be a valuable experience for learners, building branching scenarios can be time-consuming and challenging. If the first decision point has three choices, and those three each have three choices, and then those three have three choices, suddenly you have 40 slides after only 3 decisions for the learner. The complexity of that structure grows exponentially and can be hard to manage as an instructional designer. Additionally, SMEs who are accustomed to working on traditional elearning may be uncomfortable with branching, and you may be unsure how to get good stories and examples from them. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed in the process of planning and designing branching scenarios. What you need is a better process for creating branching scenarios.

    In this session, you’ll learn how to streamline your processes for branching scenarios, from initial planning through writing and creating a functional prototype. You’ll start from the beginning, by analyzing the problem you’re trying to solve and identifying your objectives. We’ll discuss what questions to ask SMEs and other sources to get stories and examples to incorporate in your branching scenario. You’ll learn tactics for eliciting responses from SMEs if you’re “stuck.” You’ll get tips for planning the flow of your scenario, including comparing different branching structures of varied complexity. You’ll see how the free, open-source tool Twine can streamline the process of planning, writing, and prototyping branching scenarios. You’ll learn the advantages of writing one complete path in the branching scenario from start to finish before fleshing out the alternative paths. You’ll learn how to give learners opportunities to correct their mistakes in ways that both deepen learning and simplify your design. By the end of this session, you’ll have a streamlined process for planning, designing, writing, and prototyping branching scenarios that can then be built in any authoring tool you want. This streamlined process will help you save time and make the complexity of branching scenarios more manageable.

    In this session, you’ll learn:

    • What questions and tactics elicit relevant stories and examples from SMEs
    • How to use Twine for planning, writing, and prototyping branching scenarios
    • How giving learners opportunities to fix mistakes can streamline branching design
    • How to use different branching structures for scenarios
    • What to write first in a branching scenario
