Virtual classroom technology (ILinc, Adobe Connect, WebEx, Elluminate, etc.) provides a wonderful live, real-time bridge between the traditional classroom and the learner. But it isn’t “just like” the traditional classroom, and in the wrong hands can be deadly dull.

In this session we’ll learn to read virtual “body language," look at ways to increase interactivity and engagement, utilize games and activities, and create visuals that support learning.

The notion might defy standard logic, but having fun while learning is a good thing. It's evidence-based: enjoyment heightens engagement and retention - an excellent reason to include gameplay in our blended learning campaigns.  

Game-based learning and gamification must be thoughtfully designed, drawing on the psychology of play and its usefulness as a learning strategy. InSync Training tapped into the expertise of fourteen experts for advice and guidance on game-based learning and gamification.

Modern learning requires modern instructional design. In the past, we designed stand-alone training events. To move into the future, our approach must evolve to address all possible moments of learning need. What’s the solution? Blended learning campaigns instead of courses.

The transition may require a thoughtful approach, but it’s not rocket science! By building on proven design methodologies and considering the needs of our modern learners, we can make the jump into the future.

Blended learning campaigns connect the dots between reusable content, allowing learners to create and follow their personal learning pathways, and turn to us as trusted advisers in their moments of learning need. Effective instructional design matches each learning objective to an appropriate instructional technique, implemented with the right strategy, and deployed using technology.

Instructor: Jane Bozarth

BozarthZone!

Trainers and instructional designers know that much instruction simply places too many demands on learners in terms of volume, clarity, and memory. This session provides an overview of cognitive load considerations in instructional design. Particular emphasis is placed on how information can be presented in such a way as to avoid overloading the recipient's ability to receive, process, and understand the information (i.e., their "brain bandwidth").

We all like a good story, right? Well, your brain likes a good story too. Research has shown that our brains wilt faster than a hot lettuce leaf when presented with a bunch of slides containing bullet points. (You probably already suspected that on some level, but as it turns out it really is true!) The language processing part of our brains is the only part that is active when we are experiencing death by PowerPoint.

"Time management" is an oxymoron. You can't change it, or lengthen it, or shorten it, or 'manage' it. This course will help you identify ways to deal with the things you can manage: yourself, others, and the tasks with which you're confronted.

No man is an island; we are all part of a larger community. Rapid advances in tools and technologies offer us a myriad of ways to communicate and collaborate with each other.

This session will review some of the current virtual collaboration tools available and suggest ways of using each most efficiently. We’ll also talk about how and when you can incorporate a more personal touch to your communications across the virtual landscape.
