ATDChi (Association of Talent Development Chicagoland Chapter, formerly CCASTD) Event
Title: 2-Day Thiagi Workshop: Really Rapid Instructional Design
Presenter: Thiagi
Dates: March 18 and 19, 2015
Time: 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Location: DePaul Naperville Campus, 150 West Warrenville Road, Naperville, IL 60563
Description: Fifteen years ago, Thiagi went cold turkey and quit using his grandparents’ ADDIE instructional-design model. He came up with an alternative continuous, concurrent, creative, co-design approach. His associates and hundreds of workshop participants have used this approach to design corporate training materials faster and cheaper and to produce more effective transfer to the workplace. In this walk-the-talk workshop, learn when, why, and how to apply principles from chaos, creativity, and improv to design learning packages for multicultural audiences and for the next generation.
