Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) January 28, 2013
This premier event for workplace learning and development professionals welcomes over 1,200 attendees who focus their daily attention on the design and delivery, management, and strategy of technology and learning. Attendees will come together alongside 70 exhibitors in the learning technology space to learn, network, and move people forward through the application of learning and technology.
Allen Interactions kicks off the conference on Monday, January 28, facilitating two of ASTD’s preconference certificate programs. The two-day ASTD e-Learning Instructional Design Certificate Program helps participants develop individualized, meaningful and memorable e-learning experiences that motivate learners to change their behavior. The other preconference certificate program is ASTD’s Advanced e-Learning Instructional Design Certificate which helps participants design effective learning experiences by blending in proven behavior-change principles.
New Workshop – Leaving ADDIE for SAM:
Michael Allen and Edmond Manning will facilitate a preconference workshop on Leaving ADDIE for SAM. The goal of this workshop is to help attendees learn the basics of the Successive Approximation Model (SAM) and measure their organization's readiness to follow a process other than the traditional ADDIE. Drawing from ASTD's new book, Leaving ADDIE for SAM, participants are introduced to SAM1 and SAM2, which are not Dr. Seuss characters, but rather alternate development processes.
