Very excited to be speaking at the eACH conference again on July 11, 2014. It's my pleasure to speak about "Designing Accessible eLearning" and "Engaging Learners by Making Training Motivational". If you're in healthcare designing training programs, you need to attend. Click the link below to find out more.
Here's more detail:
Designing Accessible eLearning:
The learner experience in any training program affects the transfer of knowledge and the reputation of its designers and host organization. So how can instructional designers account for accessibility guidelines in their elearning designs and still create a good experience for each learner? This talk will review the most common web accessibility guidelines used in eLearning (W3C AA and AAA guidelines). It will also demonstrate samples of engaging accessible eLearning and specific case studies revealing design issues and decisions. It will review key aspects of the AODA standards and how they may affect elearning.
Engaging Learners by Making Training Motivational:
To engage adult learners, we, as instructional designers, need to be developing “motivating” online and facilitated training programs within our organizations. There are three unique factors that foster motivation and in turn, spark engagement and understanding, and behavioural change. This presentation will identify these three factors and outline how they are related to adult learning needs, as well as, highlight how they can be applied to learning programs and the appropriate tools to use.
