    Why I Will Never Leave ADDIE

    There has been a lot of hype about “new” instructional design models, and one particularly effective marketing strategy for “leaving ADDIE for SAM.”  After careful consideration and practical application with more instructional design projects than I could count, I can confidently say, “I will never leave ADDIE.”

    Why?  Because ADDIE works.  It has evolved over the last 40+ years into a more flexible process.  In fact, the ADDIE process I was taught in graduate school in the late 80s already incorporated evaluative and iterative components associated with more agile modern processes.

    Join Past President, Tiffany Landrum in exploring the pros and cons, ups and downs, twists and turns, facts and myths about ADDIE, SAM, RAD, LLAMA, and more.  Then, determine what works for you!

    As learning professionals, we’re expected to utilize a wide range of skills in the creation of learning content. Whether you’re developing a presentation for an instructor-led class or an eLearning module for an online course, it’s vital that your content is visually pleasing. And while we all know the importance of graphic design in the creation of learning content, graphic design is something that most of us struggle to master!

    In this one-day workshop, you’ll explore the basics of graphic design and visual communications, and how to apply these techniques to your learning content. We’ll start by exploring the best practices of using fonts, colors, images, and layouts; and then we’ll practice using these techniques on real content. Best of all, we’ll explore how you can become a better graphic designer by using a graphic design program that most of us already know how to use: PowerPoint!

    In this session, you will learn…

    • The essential elements of graphic design, including fonts, colors, images, and layouts.
    • How to use PowerPoint as a graphic design tool.
    • How to visually communicate your learning content and reduce on-screen text.
    • How to design custom graphics in PowerPoint.

    Presented By: Tim Slade

    Tim Slade is a speaker, author, and award-winning eLearning designer.

    We'll cover these competencies in this session:

    • Learning Technologies - The ability to use technology effectively across the different areas of expertise.

    Course Description

    This course is about communication, brain-based learning and professional development aimed primarily at effective training, coaching and problem solving. We will give you a deeper understanding of the deeper levels of rapport development and relationship management–useful, and often crucial–in all aspects of management, HR, training and coaching. It's also the basis of handling all difficulties between and among people, both in work and in life. Many people don't realize that all of this is a specific set of skills, involving language, voice tone, body language and observational and flexibility skills to.  These skills can be learned by anyone, and truly improve anyone's abilities in helping or leading others.  NLP is based on how the brain actually works. The skills we will develop in this course are not the usual fare. Not standard old-time body language ideas. Not a bunch of tips.  Real world applications based on the latest science we have available. You will get a solid introduction to this fascinating field.

    This is also about understanding, developing and using our most resourceful states of mind to develop skills, solve problems and achieve goals. Everyone knows that to be at our best we must be in the proper state of mind.  Most people don't know that this can be brought-largely-under our control. Using these ideas and skills will help people, both coaches and those they help, get into their best states of mind when they most need to. This helps with decision making, communication, and problem solving, both individually and between people. It is also one of the skills of great trainers. We will blend all this into a framework that participants can use from now on, in every area of their work, and even in their personal lives.
