Innovations in Training Labs

Continuing the spirit of NOLA and lagniappe, several of our friends and colleagues who are facilitating sessions at TechLearn are extending their Innovations in Training Test Kitchen demos into The District during the conference.  
  • Ever wondered what it would be like to be a podcaster — as training-delivery mechanism? 
  • Struggling to break through the barriers to adding more video to your courses?  
  • How about really wanting to go for it with the addition of augmented reality or virtual reality to your onboarding and staff development learning content?  
  • Accessible is both a noun and a verb. And much more than adding Alt Text and a transcript. But you’re wondering where to start?  
The Labs are intended to be informal opportunities to learn, “ask the experts,” and try stuff out. These facilitators will be available during breaks, as well as concurrently during breakouts. Plus, you can also schedule time to go a little deeper with your specific questions and challenges. Either way, come get the help you need to break through and add more tech and design options to your learning!
General availability of the Labs:
  • Wednesday: 7:15 am-9:30 am, 11:15 am-12:15 pm, 12:45 pm-2:30 pm
  • Thursday: 7:15 am -9:30 am, 11:00 am-12:00 pm, 12:30 pm-2:00 pm

Who deserves to get better at their jobs? Everyone does — including people who need assistive technologies when accessing learning. Join Amy Morrisey and Diane Elkins of Artisan E-Learning to demystify the challenges of making learning content more accessible. If you are a developer, instructional designer, or training leader, there’s something here for you. Come and get hands on … and be inspired to embrace this important element of diversity, equity, and inclusion.
