About the Webinar

Although the majority of the population are visual learners, most details about a medical diagnosis or treatment are delivered verbally. To exacerbate the problem, the majority of the information being delivered consists of concepts and terminology. They are difficult for doctors to explain and even more difficult for patients to understand. Learn from a real-life cancer experience of how information was presented and what could have been done to make it easier to understand and remember. Find out what we can do as technical communicators to address different learning styles and an audience that is not clearly defined.

We will be recording the webinar, so feel free to enjoy the presentation knowing that you can see the recording at a later date.

About the Audience

The content will be introductory (e.g., > “101 level”) and will also be valuable to practitioner level attendees.

About the Webinar

Creating a vision that is shared among designers, subject matter experts, clients, and leaders is one of the fundamental challenges that content professionals must overcome. In the learning design space, many project stakeholders lack the background knowledge, experiences, or “language” to relate their vision in ways that instructional designers can effectively implement.

In this session, Phylise will introduce an easy-to-use and powerful visual learning design method called Learning Environment Modeling (LEM) — a unique visual language created to enhance communication and foster collaboration between instructional design professionals and diverse stakeholders.

During the session, you will learn how to visually communicate the correlation of specific design elements to learning results and use Learning Environment Modeling (LEM) to collaborate effectively with blended learning project teams. Phylise will talk about how to facilitate more effective communication throughout the design process, and how to use a learning environment design system and tools to remove or reduce ego-centric behaviors and attitudes during the design process.

Join us as we explore how LEM can support creative learning experience design and remove barriers to communication throughout the learning design process.

We will be recording the webinar, so feel free to enjoy the presentation knowing that you can see the recording at a later date.

About the Audience

Instructional designers at the practitioner level, academics, students, and explorers.
