Session Description:

An essential part of the simulation activity is debriefing to encourage reflection and consolidation of learning. As much learning is moving from face to face to online, the ability to debrief may be lost, resulting in lost opportunities for self-reflection and behaviour change. We designed an innovative way to incorporate “asynchronous” debriefing into a virtual simulation experience using best practices in eLearning, so that learners can still reflect and experience the benefits of debriefing.

Debriefing after a simulation activity is an essential part of the simulation framework. According to the International Nursing Association for Clinical Simulation and Learning Best Practice Standards, “All Simulation-based learning experiences should include a planned debriefing session aimed toward promoting reflective thinking”. Debriefing allows for clarification and consolidation of learning and insights and encourages participants to reflect on the experience by analyzing their thoughts, actions, and emotions. Probing questions during debriefing can also promote learners’ reflection on how to change behavior for improved performance. Furthermore, this reflection often encourages learners to envision themselves applying learning into action or job performance. In this way, debriefing targets affective learning in values, beliefs and attitudes to support knowledge application.

Typically debriefing is done live, face to face, immediately following a simulation experience. With a demand for learning to move from face to face to online, the ability to debrief may be lost, resulting in lost opportunities for self-reflection and behaviour change. We designed a way to incorporate “asynchronous” debriefing into a virtual simulation experience to ensure that the positive learning opportunities remained intact for online users. This was developed by compiling responses from multiple learners who had participated in live simulations and writing a subsequent scenario based on these responses. We embedded this into an on-line learning module on Responsive Behaviours, however it could also stand alone as a single learning activity. In this workshop, participants will experience both the face to face simulation including debriefing and the asynchronous version. Benefits and challenges to both presentation modes will be discussed as a group.

In this session you will learn:

     
  • the key steps in debriefing
  •  
  • why debriefing after a simulation is so important for learners
  •  
  • how to design learning outcomes and goals for asynchronous debriefing
  •  
  • key elements in developing an asynchronous debriefing activity for on-line learning

Session Description:

Mobile learning projects can be tremendously difficult to measure and track using SCORM. As a matter of fact, there is some data that cannot be captured at all. For organizations moving into multi-screen learning platforms, capturing important information about how the audience interacts with content is a critical missing piece. In this session, we will review examples of how xAPI can be used to report data on interactions with mobile learning content. We will discuss how you can apply and customize this approach to your mobile content, gaining valuable insight from the rich data you can collect. Specifically, we will review two examples: an interactive eBook and a mobile learning solution and assessment tool built into Adobe Captivate. You will leave with sample files that you can apply to your own projects.

In this session you will learn:

  • How xAPI and cmi5 function
  • How xAPI and cmi5 were applied to projects to collect specific interaction data
  • How xAPI can be programmed into mobile learning solutions, what happens to the data, and how it can be used

Session Description:

Infographics are an incredibly popular way of displaying data and framing information. However, we’ve all seen examples where infographics have been unclear or even downright confusing. Obviously simply displaying a collection of related data in a visual way doesn’t magically create a powerful infographic. So what does? And how can learning professionals use this tool to create compelling training?

In this session, we'll walk through the basics of what makes an infographic work, what situations they’re particularly suited for (or not suited for at all), and how to display data in a way that tells a compelling story to your audience. By the end of the session, you'll be able to identify successful and unsuccessful aspects of infographics, as well as create compelling infographics of your own.

In this session you will learn:

  • What exactly defines a good infographic
  • When is it best to use infographics in learning (and when should you avoid them)
  • What the most common mistakes made in infographics are and how they can be overcome
  • What the best infographic practices are for determining what story to tell, data to display, and way to display it

Session Description:

A recent survey by Donald H Taylor, Chairman of the Learning and Performance Institute, revealed that enterprise collaboration is falling out of favor with L&D. Forrester Research has shown that roughly 80% enterprise social platform implementations fail. In recent years social technology has fractured into social intranets, enterprise social networks and chat platforms. What are we to make of this? Has social lost its way? Have expectations been over-inflated? Should L&D let go or do more? In this session two social practitioners, James Tyer of SWOOP Analytics and Mark Britz of The eLearning Guild will examine the real value that social technology can bring to an organization. You will learn strategies to set the stage for success and how to view qualitative and quantitative data to paint an accurate picture of incremental workforce transformation. Finally we will explore the methods you can take to grow greater partnerships with employees, management and executives to grow work networks, and increase the engagement, innovation and agility your organization demands.

In this session you will learn:

  • How to cut through the bells & whistles and get back to the foundation of social

Session Description:

It is very hard to teach a mass casualty situation in a classroom setting (how can you replicate the panic and shock of seeing many people injured and then what to do, in a classroom setting? This is extremely hard to do). This session will demonstrate why virtual reality is the future of learning and how it can promote an increased transfer of learning, in situations that are often hard to replicate in a classroom environment (like a mass casualty event).

The notion of “learner experience” has never been more relevant than it is today – yet over and over, training and development professionals either opt for, or they are encouraged to invest in safe, easily quantifiable modalities that tell the participant what their ‘takeaways’ will be, rather than letting the messages unravel through the experience itself. This presentation will propose that L&D needs to amplify the internal client experience, to keep up with external expectations - set through learning mediums and campaigns that are real, transparent and targeted.

Participants will enjoy a thought-provoking journey that will question some traditionally held perspectives of corporate training, culminating in the utilization of virtual reality – a medium historically deemed too expensive and impractical for wide-spread organizational use; and one whose application requires the reinvention of conventional design.

An example of how Pathways and St. John Ambulance created a virtual reality eLearning module to teach about what to do in a mass causality situation and how to prioritize injured patients for treatment, will be presented and explored.

In this session you will learn:

  • How virtual reality (VR) can be used in an eLearning module (participants will watch and/or experience VR).
  • How instructional design must change when designing for VR
  • Why learning is more powerful when learners are immersed in the situation rather than being told about it (VR versus traditional training)
  • How 360 video can be used in eLearning to enhance the learning experience

Audience Level:

Novice, Intermediate, Advanced

Technology Discussed:

Virtual reality eLearning/mLearning using 360 video and google cardboard

Session Description:

This session looks at three ways to improve your slides visually and get away from Death by PowerPoint and click-through eLearning, so that your content can become more visual, using the right diagram to illustrate and bring your points to life.

That means your audience start paying attention, and understand what you want to tell them, even when it’s pretty complicated. Which means that your training is more effective.

     
  1. Design to Impress – principles from graphic design for better layout and more engaging content.
  2.  
  3. Visualization Process – a detailed process to transform text-heavy content into compelling visuals, looking at the key ideas, visual frameworks, and how animations can bring the story to life.
  4.  
  5. Interactive Visuals – how to create visual slides that encourage interactivity and get people actively participating.

There’s also a handy guide to help you create great visuals every time you need to. Plus, once you’ve got your visual ideas, you can also get a free PowerPoint toolkit to kick start your efforts and a series of PowerPoint tutorial videos to bring all your visuals to life.

In this session you will learn:

     
  • How to get rid of bullet points and delight your audiences with compelling visual slides
  •  
  • Ways to explain complex concepts with diagrams that help people understand

Session Description:

We built a Confidence-Based Assessment tool to help physicians critically self-assess their own competency. After using the tool, physicians reported increased self-awareness of their relative competence, and were able immediately to focus on the those areas where they were less competent.

In this session you will learn how to create your own Confidence-Based Assessment tool. We will explore how this tool can be used to supplement existing learning initiatives, or as a standalone assessment tool. We’ll also discuss how it can be applied to a wide range of competencies.

Lack of self-awareness and metacognitive ability hinders a person’s ability to objectively evaluate their own competence. In a healthcare setting, competency is vital to providing safe care; if a physician does know they are incompetent, the consequences can be literally life-threatening. So how can they accurately self-assess their level of competency?

In this session you will learn:

  • How to develop a confidence based assessment tool.
  • How to build a dashboard to highlight the intersection of knowledge and confidence.
  • How to leverage the feedback loop.
  • The role self-efficacy plays in self-assessment.
  • N/A
