Using Informal Learning to Support Development

If you're looking to share experiences, challenges, and connections with like-minded peers who focus on instructional design, ATD VOS can help you find your tribe!  SIGs are free for ATD VOS Members!

Instructional Design Special Interest Group

Wednesday, May 29, 2024

12:00 PM - 1:00 PM Arizona

Virtual Session

Informal learning networks can be valuable for L&D professionals to advance their careers, support work transition, improve performance, and develop additional skills.

The bigger question is how we leverage informal learning to support our organizations and during the May Instructional Design SIG, we will discuss how we can integrate informal learning to create a meaningful learning experience.

Our conversation may focus on:

  • Informal learning networks
  • Tools to assist in development of informal learning.
  • How has this changed in the last 10 years?
  • And more!

You can also review this article to get the discussion kick started!

  • What is the group?

In our Instructional Design Special Interest Group, we will focus on the Instructional Design capability of ATD's Talent Development Capability Model™.  Each session will have a focused topic, but we welcome a diverse and organic discussion that may lead to other brilliant ideas.  The ATD VOS Instructional Design SIG will meet every other month through 2024.

Who can attend?

All learning, development, and talent professionals are welcome to join--whether you're just starting to develop your first official course or you're a seasoned expert who uses SAM.

How does ATD define 'instructional design?'

Instructional design is an essential element of an effective learning effort. The creation of learning experiences and materials is what results in the acquisition and application of knowledge and skills. Talent development professionals follow a system of assessing needs, designing a process, developing materials, and evaluating effectiveness. Instructional design requires the analysis and selection of the most appropriate strategies, methodologies, and technologies to maximize the learning experience and knowledge transfer.
