W401 - Story Time: How to Integrate Narrative and Stories to Make E-Learning Relevant

Wed, Jan 24 | 4:15 PM - 5:15 PM | 210AE

Session Description:
Unfortunately, e-learning is still thought of as a get-it-out-there delivery method that is best suited to training you can export from PowerPoint, upload to a learning management system, and roll-up participation to say you did. How can instructional designers create better, more creative programs with little development time? In this session, you'll learn powerful methods to engage learners through narrative, scenarios, and stories to make the training more relatable to learners. Stories and narrative give adult learners that crucial window into how the content is relevant to them, making them invested in the material. It's time to take e-learning to a new level of ROI and results through the incorporation of better content.

Application on the Job:
Connect your audience and material through stories and narrative.
Explore how to harvest stories and narrative for use in e-learning.
Discover the power of video as a medium for storytelling and creating narrative around a topic.
