FocusOn Learning 2017: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Make Presentations Educational

It’s a rainy, cool day in Madison, and I find myself wishing I were back in sunny San Diego. I was there last week for the eLearning Guild’s FocusOn Learning 2017 conference. This was my first time attending the conference, but I still got that familiar feeling of excitement from being around colleagues in my field. In conferences, there’s definitely a sense of comradery: you’re an instructional designer? Me too! Let’s talk shop.

Talk shop we did. I presented my session twice. The eLearning Guild gave me a speaker for being a speaker (very punny.)

I received some positive feedback on the FocusOn Learn app as well:

The attendees were greatly engaged and receptive to what I had to say. They asked questions throughout the session and enjoyed playing through the games I demoed for them. One attendee demoed his own film lighting simulation software for me after the session which was incredibly impressive. It seems that the attendees are open to the idea of experiential, rather than didactic, methods of eLearning. It is my sincere hope that adult education as a whole follows suit.
