Science fiction has always challenged people to see their world in new ways, from a glimpse at an imagined “long, long time ago in a galaxy far, far away” in Star Wars to envisioning a potential future centuries from now in Star Trek. Movies like The Matrix, Inception, Minority Report, Blade Runner, and so many others have proposed mind-blowing ideas like alternate realities, parallel universes, transporter beams, and time travel. One of the many reasons this genre is so popular is that it poses a wide range of “what-if” questions and allows its audience to play with possible answers. But these ideas can do more then just entertain you—they can also inspire your work in L&D.

In this session, you’ll explore the ways sci-fi can help you rethink how you create your content, and you’ll find out where L&D and sci-fi have some fascinating points of crossover. Come learn how to create truly engaging eLearning by applying the best ideas of sci-fi to your eLearning designs, and have fun while doing it.

In this session, you will learn:

  • New approaches to find the best “what-if” ideas and determine whether they can help you reach your learners
  • How to engage learners with storylines that you can borrow from the best sci-fi
  • Practical ways to apply concepts from science fiction to your eLearning designs
