So much of our design work is focused on covering all the material and creating engaging approaches that we may overlook a most basic issue: Can learners can be successful with the class or eLearning course? Design flaws such as overload, ineffective use of activities and multimedia , and poor assessment items are just some of the ways an “engaging” experience can still cause learners to stumble.
This session will help designers and others involved in the design process identify common trouble spots, understand them from the learners’ point of view, and take steps to correct them before learners have a chance to fail. L&D professionals wishing to work from a “learner first” point of view will find this session illuminating and applicable.
This session is appropriate for both eLearning designers and classroom trainers.
Jane Bozarth is an experienced classroom facilitator and elearning designer and author of several popular books including "Better than Bullet Points" and "From Analysis to Evaluation", and "Show Your Work". She has recently stepped into a new role as Director of Research for the eLearning Guild. Dr. Bozarth and her husband live in Durham, North Carolina.
Jane is happy to sign her books and will also give feedback on designs or activities shared/brought by participants in the class as time allows. She will also comment on eLearning individual screens or short sequences.
Registration includes coffee service in the morning and a full lunch.
