    eLearning 101: From Goal to Execution

    Morning and Afternoon Sessions

    (8:30am - 4:30pm) 

    Facilitators: Jen Wichern & Jen Labrie Pereira

    E-Learning is fast becoming a staple in developing employees. Whether programs are blended, flipped, or solely online, 77% of US companies offered online corporate training to their employees in 2015, and this number is expected to increase 13% per year through 2017. That means knowing when to include eLearning in your talent development programs, as well as the ability to create, implement, and track learner behaviors from the finished product are essential for today’s Talent Development Professional.

    In this one-day, hands-on workshop, attendees will be given a typical development request in which they will uncover the expected outcomes of the program, and use eLearning design and implementation best practices to create a short eLearning product. 
         

                        

    By the end of the morning session, attendees will be able to:   

    • Recognize when eLearning is a viable option for a training event
    • Identify the elements, tools, and resources needed to create an eLearning program
    • Construct an action map to identify the information needed, activities required, and behaviors exhibited by the learner to achieve business goals
    • Use a provided eLearning storyboard to create a short eLearning program
    • Design after training follow-up strategies to ensure learning retention

     

    Jen Wichern has over 8 years of experience as a Talent Development Professional, and is highly skilled in the use of the ADDIE model, and designs, develops, and implements training for a wide range of topics for both classroom and eLearning
    platforms.


    Currently, she is an Organizational Effectiveness Instructional Design Specialist with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Nebraska where she is working to help the organization achieve its strategic goals. Jen holds a B.S. in Geology with an Emphasis in Paleontology from Fort Hays State University, Hays, Kansas. She also has certifications in Action Selling, Coaching for Sales Quality, and Strategic Selling. She is an alumni of ATD Nebraska’s Trainer’s Institute, and has an E-Learning Instructional Design Certification from ATD.

In that role, she is responsible for developing and facilitating training materials for the global reservation centers. This includes New Associate training, ongoing enhancement training for current Associates, and training on how to handle different kinds of calls.
