        What if your learners liked your e-Learning so much they shared it with their colleagues? You can make it happen through the power of animation! Join the June Chapter meeting to explore how effective—and simple—animated video can be.

        We are going to explore how adding animated videos to your e-learning can increase engagement, memory retention, and reduce cognitive load. We will also talk about how you can utilize available software to create animated videos in-house or take ideas from current tech to enhance your e-Learning.

        On this topic, we will dissect an e-Learning sample and break into discussion groups to brainstorm ideas you can implement at your organization. Be sure to join the fun!


        Julie Gillespie has worked with a wide range of organizations across industries to help tell their stories through video. Julie now uses her expertise to show other Instructional Designers how to streamline their video-making processes and build engaging content that keeps learners asking for more.

        Nearly everything we do in our professional and personal lives is a project. Whether it is rolling out a new product or initiative, collaborating on a team, or planning a vacation, a good understanding of how to deliver a project on time, within the budget, and within scope is the formula for success. Managing projects requires the ability to set clear objectives, report, project plan, work collaboratively and control project outcomes. This certificate program will build your understanding of project management methods. 

        After completing this program, participants will have the ability to:

        1. Define project management.

        2. Develop a working definition of project management.

        3. Learn the five project process groups: initiate, plan, execute, monitor and control, close.

        4. Apply project management processes to a project as a project manager or project team member.

        5. Practice using tools and techniques within the project process groups.

        Pre-work:

        • Think of a project that you have been involved with recently:
        • What role did you play?
        • What was unique about the project?
        • Did it come in on time, within budget, and within scope?
        • Did your project follow any specific process?



        Re-certification Credits:

        Brooks Enterprise and Consultants programs have been pre-approved by the ATD Certification Institute for continuing education credits towards professional development hours for initial eligibility and recertification of the Certified Professional in Talent Development (CPTD) and Associate Professional in Talent Development (APTD) credentials.
