Best Practice Storyboarding Workshop Wellington @ ProjectR, NEC House, Level 2
Mar 6 @ 9:00 am – 12:30 pm

Short Notice Professional Development for L&D elearning designers!

Kick off the New Year with new and productive elearning design skills!

At a great new years price!

“Robust storyboarding reduces development time by at least 25%, improves Learning Designer productivity and reduces rework, stress, project management and stakeholder review time”.

Rustica Lamb, Founder, Bloom Learning Technologies

 

Have you ever designed elearning and heard the following:

Some people think, having an idea in your head and jumping straight to ‘fingers on the keyboard’ is quicker than thinking through a storyboard first. Rustica disagrees.

Storyboarding is one of the biggest opportunities to reduce time to roll out learning modules and a way to unleash your creativity, and at the same time, direct all stakeholders review in a productive and efficient manner. It is also one of the least used tools for rapid module design. Rapid prototyping is still a recommended technique, but after the storyboard is complete and agreed. Storyboards direct solid thinking time.

Over the past 12 months, Rustica and her team have been researching, trialing, and refining the storyboarding process for greatly reduced cost of elearning (think at least 30% less than industry standard). From powerpoint slides, to text heavy tables to film-like sketches, Bloom has trialed them all. Some didn’t have enough detail, others too much, many hard to read, and in all cases, a document that didn’t serve all stakeholders; reviewers, developers, voice over talent and graphics.

 

At the end of this 3.5 hour workshop you be able to design detailed story boards in around 10 hours.

You will learn:

· Different storyboard structures for different types of elearning (systems training vs. soft skills vs. compliance training etc)

· Understand best practice user experience techniques

· Samples of storyboards

· A best practice example and guest speaker from a large retail food chain

· Design instructions for development, SMEs, reviewers, line managers and voice talent

· Receive a storyboard template and start to create a storyboard

 

Book quickly. Limited to 12 people.

 

Please note:

1. Please arrive no later than 8.45am to set up.

2. Please bring an internet capable device which is capable of USB document transfer.

 

Facilitator Marion Littin

As an experienced primary school teacher, Marion has developed engaging, relevant, and purpose-built learning experiences for children in response to their identified learning needs in order to meet the requirements of the New Zealand Curriculum.

These are also the skills required to design high quality, effective learning for adults. Accurate assessment of a learner’s strengths and needs drives quality learning design. It may be formative – to establish the learner’s needs, or summative – to determine competency. She has designed assessments, and used norm-referenced industry tools. With any type of assessment, prompt and relevant feedback to the learner enables them to build competency.

Workshop: Creating Value Through 70:20:10 – The Performance Detective at Work with Charles Jennings @ Cliftons
Mar 15 @ 9:00 am – 5:00 pm

W O R K S H O P

CREATING VALUE THROUGH 70:20:10 – THE PERFORMANCE DETECTIVE AT WORK

Facilitator: Charles Jennings himself, first time in New Zealand!

March 15 2018, 9am-5pm

Seats are limited to 50 so get in quick!

EARLYBIRD SPECIAL $1,195 – SECURE YOUR SEAT BY 31ST JANUARY!

Are you a L&D professional or HR business partner with a passion for your profession? With an ambition to analyse and advise from a business perspective? To ensure you have a meaningful say at the management table through delivering measurable business impact?

Then the Performance Detective Workshop is definitely for you.

In many organisations, it’s difficult not to fall into accepting solutions without analysis. This is often the case when managers have already decided the solution for a performance problem, and then simply ask you to deliver this solution. No analysis occurs. By learning how to analyse problems and opportunities at the system level, you will be able to provide real added value for your internal customers.

In their book ’70:20:10 Towards 100 Percent Performance’ Jos Arets, Charles Jennings and Vivian Heijnen describe five new roles necessary to effectively deploy the 70:20:10 methodology.

One of these roles is the Performance Detective.

“When people work, they start by carrying out tasks and end by achieving results. This seems the logical way to look at the situation, but when it comes to analysing business needs, you have to approach things the other way around: you start with the desired organisational goals, then work your way backwards through the results and processes to the tasks and external influences. This is the only way to understand which factors contribute to the desired results. The Performance Detective is responsible for carrying out a systematic analysis of performance issues, including the organisation itself, and identifies the root causes of such issues. The Performance Detective carries out business analysis, performance analysis and influence analysis. An effective Performance Detective adds real value by following a structured process and delivering”

This one-day workshop will provide you with opportunities to learn about, and carry out, the core tasks of the Performance Detective.

It has been designed to:

  • provide insight/encouragement for the L&D professionals and HRBP’s to apply 70:20:10 effectively
  • create an opportunity to learn the steps/tasks in the Performance Detective role and apply them
  • allow the attendees to leave with confidence to apply some of the Performance Detective tasks immediately

The action-oriented workshop is structured into 3 parts:

  1. success criteria for 70:20:10
  2. the importance of the specific roles in the 70:20:10 methodology
  3. how L&D and HRBP’s can become Performance Detectives

It draws on action learning approaches.

Attendees will each receive a deluxe edition of the 70:20:10 Towards 100 Percent Performance book.

Breakfast Briefing with Charles Jennings – Shifting Perspectives: Building High Performance in the Workplace @ Auckland
Mar 16 @ 7:30 am – 9:30 am

HRINZ BREAKFAST BRIEFING WITH CHARLES JENNINGS
SHIFTING PERSPECTIVES: Building High Performance in the Workplace

March 16 2018, 7.30-9.30am

High performing organisations understand that speed, agility and adaptability are the key drivers for success. Yet, across the world, organisations struggle to exploit the place where most learning happens, as part of the daily workflow.

Research suggests that managers who are focused and effective at creating development opportunities, and provide opportunities for feedback and reflection, lead teams that out perform others by up to 27%. That’s an extra day’s work from everyone every week!

When we add this to the global trend towards more flexible, open career models that offer enriching assignments, projects, and experiences rather than static career progression and the fact that virtually all CEO’s (more than 70%) believe their organisations are facing disruptive change driven by digital technologies, and 70% say their organisations do not have the skills to adapt (Deloitte 2017 Global Human Capital Trends report), it is clear we are facing a ‘perfect storm’.

This breakfast briefing will provide an opportunity to hear Charles Jennings explain ways to address this dilemma by moving from a focus on learning to one of performance, and from individual development to organisational development.

eLearnz Learning Technology Web Summit

Your favourite L&D speakers as live streamed holograms from around the world

Wednesday, August 22, 2018

Not your usual L&D conference

A New Zealand first!

‘Sage from the stage’ format conferences are dying and damn hard work to organise. And with gratitude to some challenges in convening the 2017 eLearnz conference, we asked ourselves, how can we change up the L&D conference scene in 2018. We are after all a learning technology company and therefore using innovative technology became our focus. ‘Why not holograms?’ we asked. We sought and found the tech to live stream L&D thought leaders from all over the world. It’s innovative, it’s risky, it’s fun, and the people we have shared it with are jumping on board.

Limited to 100 seats and they are going fast.

Save a seat today and pay later!
(payment must be made by 31 March or seats will be released)

Sponsorship available

To keep the cost way down, we are offering corporate sponsorship. We already have offers of sponsorship and are only taking one organization per industry.

This is likely to be attractive to those responsible for their organisation’s Digital Strategy
