Fearless Instructional Design: Learning From the Imagination of Jim Henson

TechKnowledge 2015 FR200
Michelle Lentz | January 16, 2015 | Video

Too often, instructional designers end up trapped in their boxes of theory. Sometimes we need to open that box and peer outside to glean ideas and inspiration from sources outside our industry. Jim Henson started working as a puppeteer in 1954, long before many of us considered corporate instructional design (ID) as a career. Yet, Jim Henson applied many of the core ideas from ID in his imaginative work. Viewing our own theories and ideas used in different ways is a great way to help inspire us to think of new and fearless ideas. We will cover Henson's use of storyboarding, storytelling, iteration, templates, and more, and bring it back to practical uses in instructional design. We'll get creative, discussing how construction of a Muppet can translate to construction of a course. Also, this session is fun. There might even be a Muppet.

During this session, the speaker will help you identify the right blend of technologies to bring formal and informal learning together. You'll learn how to create a visual snapshot of a high-tech, high-touch development program and receive a template to present your program in a compelling way. You will leave with ideas, insights, and tools to use with social media, mobile support, games, and simulations to sustain learning, so your organization gets the most out of its training dollars, and your learners get what they want. You will understand how you can use high-tech to assess gaps in high-touch skills and learn new approaches to design personalized development programs to address those gaps. Determine how technology can help you gain buy-in and commitment from key stakeholders to achieve measurable results.
