Instructional Design for Great Virtual Reality & Augmented Reality Training

Thursday, Sept. 27, 2018
12:30 PM ET / 9:30 AM PT

Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) can significantly enhance learner engagement and promote retention. The challenge for many instructional designers and trainers today lies in when and how to apply key principles of instructional design to ensure meaningful VR and AR experiences.

Join us for this interactive LTEN virtual workshop, sponsored by Tipping Point Media, to learn the instructional design principles behind great VR and AR interventions that engage learners and, most importantly, ensure a transfer of knowledge to the job. The Tipping Point Media team is headed by William Garner, president and chief creative officer, a recognized thought leader in designing VR and AR experiences. It also includes the instructional design team of Jess Angove, director of experiential learning, and Kate Domenick, director of instructional design. Together they’ll help you learn how to design robust, engaging VR and AR.

After this webinar, you will be able to:

• Recognize the value of VR and AR.
• Identify when to use these interventions effectively.
• Articulate how to leverage the principles of instructional design in VR and AR.

How to Influence & Lead With or Without Authority

Friday, Oct. 5, 2018
12:30 PM ET / 9:30 AM PT

The ability to influence and lead on multiple levels within today’s life sciences organizations is critical to one’s success. With the increasing adoption of the “cross functional team” model, the skills needed to gain agreement and lead without a title is more common. Fortunately, there are evidence based leadership/influence skills that can be developed to successfully navigate this changing landscape.

Join us for this LTEN webinar, as Patrick Veroneau of Emery Leadership Group shows you how gaining a greater understanding of why people resist requests and how to overcome that resistance will help you lead more effectively in any environment.

At this webinar, you will learn:

• The three reasons people say “no” – reactance, credibility and apathy.
• The three ingredients needed for credibility – expertise, trust and goodwill.
• Five influence skills that will increase your chances of hearing “yes” to your requests.

Teaching and Reinforcing Skills with Tabletop Games, Video Games and Simulations

Friday, Nov. 2, 2018
12:30 PM ET / 9:30 AM PT

The ability to connect with learners and guide the transfer of knowledge is the greatest opportunity of education, and also the greatest challenge. Whether in-person or virtual, classrooms are filled with individuals who share a collective need to learn and practice skills, but often require different approaches and tools to reach that goal.

Adding a level of engagement, fun and deliberate practice can be a “gamechanger” when it comes to training. Studies have shown the value of engagement to results, and few things capture attention more than combining engaging game play with targeted learning outcomes.

Join us for this LTEN webinar, as author, professor and instructional game design expert Dr. Karl Kapp speaks with you and demonstrates the value and potential of gaming as a training tool. At this webinar, you will learn:

• How a card game reinforces sales skills.
• How a board game teaches reps to conduct a “total office call.”
• How a 3D video game teaches sales skills.
• How a simulation replaced role-play at one company, leading to a 12% increase in sales.

Attendees of the webinar will be entered in a drawing to receive one of two "Zombie Instructional Design Apocalypse" learning game card decks created by Dr. Karl Kapp.
