Learning Engagement Strategies

We want our speakers to punch up the engagement in their sessions, but often struggle getting their buy-in and follow-through. Waning engagement takes a serious toll on your event experience. And your brand. So what can we do? In this session we’ll talk about what learning engagement actually is and how to tap it. We’ll explore quick win learning formats and strategies for working with speakers. Access Tracy’s learner engagement eBook debuting at this event to take this conversation back to your team.

Webinar Revolution: Four Voices / Four Perspectives

Webinar technology was designed for virtual interaction and it has the potential to be a powerful tool in the learning portfolio.

But we’re doing it wrong. Its potential is untapped. So far.

On this show we have some guests with ideas on how to change webinars for the better.

We’ll talk with education and learning experts looking at technology and learning design for a better answer.

We’ll also hear from association pros – both seeking to evolve webinars – but doing it two very different ways.

We’ll discuss:

  • Education strategy and learning design
  • Technology, production, engagement
  • Takeaways you can start using tomorrow to make a real qualitative difference in your webinars

An Integrated Learning Strategy: Moving From Event Based Learning to Continuous Learning

Tracy opened the conference inviting attendees a new conversation: the continuing education market has shifted and we must embrace the reality of continuous learning.

Workforce disruptions, competition, and modern learner requirements have resulted in the demand for continuous learning. Associations typically offer event-based learning which is not equipped to compete in the continuous learning market. We discussed what an integrated learning strategy looks like, what tools we already have (that we just need to employ differently) to get started, and how to bring this conversation back to the organization.

AR Disruption: New Realities for Learning Design

August 2 / 3:00 pm

Pokemon Go shattered records and triggered stampedes. It’s caused traffic accidents and inspired new forms of collaboration. While the Pokemon Go phenom was short lived, augmented reality (AR) will forever influence the up-and-coming generations’ expectations for digital interaction. In this session I’ll talk about emerging technologies and draw essential lessons we can utilize to strengthen digital learning design.

  1. Distinguish augmented reality from virtual reality
  2. Identify what emerging technologies tell us about the future of digital content
  3. Discuss opportunities for learning design innovation

How to develop eLearning pricing and winning value propositions

We know we’ve got to go digital to remain relevant with our learners. But because investing in eLearning can either serve up a passive revenue stream boom or a catastrophic budget buster – a proven strategy is imperative.
