MM104 CANCELLED: Using Video in Blended Solutions to Effectively Train Even the Hardest Skills

1:00 PM - 1:45 PM Tuesday, June 20

Expo Hall: Mobile & Media Stage

From Gutenberg to Google, the old model of training that was disconnected from real-world practical experience has been: Read and remember. However, with the hardest skills, which training method is almost universally recognized as effectively impacting learning and retention of workplace skills? Hints: _____ makes perfect.  _____ is the best teacher.

With the hardest skills, how you learn determines how well you learn. This session will look at a new model of high-impact blended training enabled by online video. This approach to training simulations is staged to explode over the next decade: learning by doing, implemented effectively with blended learning solutions that use a variety of media types.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How to select and sequence methods and media, similar to precisely arranging puzzle pieces, to have maximum real-world impact
  • How to choose among a wide variety of one-to-one as well as one-to-many course relationships
  • How to master the risk-opportunity continuum so your training is not just added “noise” for people who are already busy and overworked

Novice to intermediate designers, developers, and managers.
