E-Learning Council’s fourth annual E-Learning Symposium, will be held on June 8, 2011 at the Omni Southpark Hotel in Austin, Texas. The event brings together industry experts who present topics centered on the theme of “High Performance E-Learning” with Chief Learning Officers, senior training directors, and human resource professionals.
The move to E-Learning and blended Learning is a dominant trend in the training industry driven by the lower delivery cost of E-learning. E-Learning Council’s goal is to improve the effectiveness of E-Learning through a community that provides leadership, best practices and resources in a collaborative environment. E-Learning Symposium 2011 allows the E-Learning community to network with the best in the industry and helps the community advance the quality of the learning they create.
Topics presented at E-Learning Symposium 2011 include:
- The Five Superpowers of Learning for the Digital Age with Anders Gronstedt, President, Gronstedt Group
- Make Learning Memorable with Linda Warren, Instructional Designer, MicroAssist
- Using Mobile Devices for Post-Training Reinforcement by Keith Cox, CTO of Mobile Attainment
- Involved Learning: Using Push and Pull Visual Thinking Methods with the iPad by Allison Crow, Founder, Crow Hill Conversations
- Can you Hear Me Now? Using Voiceover in E-Learning by Aimée Smith, Program Coordinator, TEEX
The conference is hosted jointly by the E-Learning Council and the Texas Department of Information Resources (DIR). Dr. John Gillis of First Order Consulting will take the helm again this year as emcee, contributing significant industry knowledge as well as a high-energy style.
This year E-Learning Council is collaborating with Microassist to present a series of practical “Focus on E-Learning Workshops.” Topics include Success in an Accessible E-Learning Environment: Technical Template Design; Visual Thinking 101: Using Push and Pull Visual Thinking Methods, and its Intermediate course, Visual Thinking 102; and Lectora 101. Each workshop provides targeted skills that are immediately applicable to creators of E-Learning.
Hiram Kuykendall, the presenter for the Accessible E-Learning workshop says, “As training developers, we spend hours learning and developing techniques aimed at creating change in our students. But are we really reaching all of our audience? My workshop participants will go through hands on and fun exercises on how to make accessible E-Learning templates.”
“We are excited about E-Learning Symposium 2011” says Donald Twining of the E-Learning Council. “We have a great roster of speakers and a diverse attendee list. Our community will be able to learn about significant E-Learning trends but also be able take back specific practices that improve E-Learning development and deployment to their organization. We have set up opportunities to network and interact with the experts and also among the participants.”
