    Tackling Virtual Troublemakers 

      June 2022 Focus

    During the June Training Delivery & Facilitation SIG, we'll help to guide an interactive conversation around a whole myriad of new learner behaviors that have started to appear with the regularity of virtual instructor-led classes. Together, we'll look at ideas to tackle those troublemakers head-on.


    Possible discussion questions will center around...

    • How do you start off on the best foot?

    • How do you support those who still struggle to join the virtual classroom?

    The learners who still struggle since 2020 to find their microphone icon or the right room link?
    • How do you address the needs of those overly active learners?

    The learners who just can't stop themselves from filling the chat with answers and ideas or unmuting themselves to respond to every question
    • How do you engage those who are on virtual overload?

    The learners who...just...can't...possibly...attend... 1...more...draining...virtual...room...they...are...exhausted...

    • How do you engage those who are easily distracted?

    The learners who just have to answer this quick message about a report that's due tomorrow morning. "I'm here. I'm listening—I promise.  I'm just wrapping something up." 

    • How do you leverage those who ARE engaged and energized?
    • Which preparation techniques work well before a class?
    • Which real-time technology strategies work well during a class?
    • And other troublemaker situations!

    Join us to share your own insight and hear from your peers!


    What is the group?

    In our Training Delivery & Facilitation Special Interest Group, we will focus on the Training Delivery and Facilitation 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 Training Delivery & Facilitation SIG will meet every other month in 2022.

    Who can attend?

    All learning, development, and talent professionals are welcome to join--whether you've just been told you're to train the new hire or you're a skillful facilitator who can handle the toughest of participants.

    How does ATD define 'delivery and facilitation?'

    Training delivery and facilitation are means by which talent development professionals help individuals improve performance at work by learning new skills and knowledge. The practitioner serves as a catalyst for learning by understanding the learner’s needs, creating the right environment for learning, building rapport with participants, and using the appropriate delivery options and media to make learning engaging, effective, relevant, and applicable.

        Video Game Tutorials for Great Design?

        July 2022 Focus

        During the July Instructional Design SIG, we'll help to guide an interactive conversation around the article Video Game Tutorials Exhibit Good Design Techniques written by Galen Midford.

        In his article, Galen Midford explains that "badges, competition, and scoring aren't the only game-design elements to pay attention to."

        Our conversation may focus around questions like—

        • How can interactive learning keep it simple?
        • How can learning design take advantage of common gestures, habits and norms?
        • How do you design for those who say they learn best through demonstration?
        • How do you design for those who say they learn best through experimentation?
        • What are great features that we can mimic in e-learning?  How can these features engage a learner?
        • What are features to avoid?  How can these disengage a learner?
          • How does storytelling engage learners by setting the stage?
          • Where can gamification have the biggest impact?
          • How do you provide learners instructions in different formats?
          • And more related ideas!


          • 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 2022.

          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.
