Bozarthzone! Tips for the Positive Deviant

february 23, 2017

Instructor: Jane Bozarth

BozarthZone!

What's a positive deviant? Researcher Jerry Sternin discovered that, "In every group there are a minority of people who find better and more successful solutions to the challenges at hand. Even though they have access to exactly the same resources as the rest of the group, their uncommon practices or behaviors allow them to flourish".

One of our favorite positive deviants, Dr. Jane Bozarth, will lead you on an overview: who are some positive deviants? What kinds of success have they had? How did they do it? Plus: 5 critical behaviors necessary for those who aspire to positive deviancy! Note: this session is intended for high performing, high potential staff and those who supervise them. It is not aimed at "fixing" problem performers.

BYTE Session - Putting the Love Back Into Your Blended Learning Instructional Design

February 14, 2017

Instructor: Phylise Banner

Insyncbyte20

The work we do as instructional designers is constantly shifting. We need to continuously evolve and adapt, as innovations drive change in the way that content can be delivered and consumed, learning environments can be designed and developed, and new modes of learning can be assessed. Although the shift can be chaotic at times, one thing remains at the core of our work -- LOVE.

Yes, you read correctly, LOVE.

Instructor: Jane Bozarth

BozarthZone!

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.

BYTE Session - Mastering Storytelling for the Business Conversation

January 17, 2017

Instructor: Christine Miles

Insyncbyte20

The world has changed with the bombardment of digital and mobile inputs. Selling and leading today is about uncovering needs people don’t know they have. It is about painting a picture that helps people see what they didn’t know was possible, versus simply providing a product or solution.

We know that some of the most successful professionals and leaders intuitively use “Story” in their conversations, though it is only in recent years that “Story” has been scientifically proven to influence and help people opt-in and buy.

Bozarthzone! Designing for Learner Success

December 8, 2016

Instructor: Jane Bozarth

BozarthZone!

So much of our design work is focused on smooth navigation, creating engaging content, and crafting complex interactions that we may overlook a most basic issue: Can learners can be successful with the course? Design flaws such as overload, ineffective use of multimedia (especially narration), and poor assessment items are just some of the ways an “engaging” course 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.

BYTE Session - Creating a Mindset for Change

December 6, 2016

Instructor: Laura Goodrich

Insyncbyte20

Do your leaders have a “Mindset for Change”, or are they tethered to what has worked in the past? Did you know that 90% of CEO’s fear their organizations do not have the agility to maneuver the road ahead, and that 87% of employees feel there is not enough focus on “how” to change? Everyone is saying we need to change, but few are saying “how” to change.
