Getting participants, let alone instructional designers, excited and engaged about creating and facilitating training for faculty and staff is a challenge. Instead of leading with required number of training and looking at average attendance, start with a story. Humans are hardwired for stories. We all want to be the hero, or work alongside the hero of the story. This session will examine how to identify your training department's story, cultivate it, and ultimately make the story a shared narrative for everyone on the team or in the department. Based upon cognitive research, best practices, and experiential knowledge and skills, participants will leave equipped with methods and approaches to uniting and revitalizing their training program. These methods and approaches include gamification, extended narratives, and blended styles of training that help technology departments integrate their training teams seamlessly into the daily operations and functions of their larger organizations.
