So bring your favorite low-cost or free design, photo/video/audio editing, project management, or other tool with you to our next workshop on November 10th and share it with the crowd! And see what others' use to get the job done and done well, without breaking the bank! Details and information here on our website. Plus, get a tour of Harrisburg University's brand new Philadelphia campus at 16th and Spring Garden. And as a special bonus - learn about Padcaster - an all-in-one portable video studio that gives you production quality while only using your....iPad!!!!! #design #instructionaldesign #freeresources

    When it comes to your career/business you fall into one of only a few categories. You either run your own business or you want to one day. currently have a job or you need on (or are looking for one while employed)

    When people ask why companies need a training department or team, what answer do you give? Can you articulate clearly and convincingly what role a trainer or instructional designer plays in an organization in 2018?

    Let's face it - in the business world, training can seem like a luxury to many. And as we all know, when times get tough, training usually suffers one of the first blows as staff gets cut. So before the next economic downturn happens or your organization suffers a setback, why not invest time in your own career development and learn how to answer that first question with confidence?

    If your job duties include words or phrases like “training,” “organizational,” “human resources,” or “performance,” you need to attend our October 4th Professional Series Seminar. Local expert Joe Willmore, fresh off a wave of global engagements with ATD, will guide participants through a one-day seminar on how to analyze and design for employee performance. Whether you’re new in the field or a grizzled veteran (or even if you lack grizzle), you’re sure to learn something surprising. With limited space available, register today to ensure your seat!

    Which one of these did you want to be when you grew up?: 

    • A instructional designer 
    • An OD practitioner 
    • A business consultant
    • An HR partner 

    We're going to guess option E - none of the above. A lot of people back their way into a job and a career. Our resumes may look neat and tidy, but our lives, and our careers, really are not. 

    If you find yourself at work wearing a hat that includes word or phrases like "training", "organizational", "human resources", "performance", and you don't have a formal background in instructional design or education, you belong at this event. Local expert Joe Willmore, fresh off of a wave of global engagements with ATD, will guide participants through a day long seminar on how to analyze and design for employee performance.

    Part one will focus on front-end analysis. With a very hands-on approach, you will learn to to identify and quantify business goals, assess performance, create objectives in measurable terms, and spot and fix performance gaps.

    Part two will zoom in specifically on performance gaps and understanding top performers. This more detailed, focus session will give you guided practice in using the tools and techniques experts use to diagnose, remedy, and measure employees' work on the job. In addition, you will learn that the fastest way to improve performance is to identify exemplars/top performers, and also how to observe, measure, and interact with them so that their success can be translated into a formula that works for others.

    Registration opening soon. In the meantime, check out the other great events coming this Fall!
