    When you share your thoughts and ideas with others...

    • Do you ever feel like you are NOT being heard?
    When others share their thoughts and ideas with you…
    • Do you wonder how your response could impact them?

    Empathy is very important in many aspects of our lives and according to the 2020 Mercer Global Talent Trends study, "organizations that lead with empathy are more energizing."

    Benefits of Empathy

    Well-being | Connection | Relationships | Personal Growth

    Creativity | Satisfaction | Engagement | Productivity

    In this facilitated workshop, you will:

    • Learn more about empathy and the "traps" that may hinder your communication
    • Self-reflect to connect with your experiences and raise awareness
    • Discover personal insights to expand your empathic potential for self and others
    • Share ideas to learn with and learn from others

    Format: 120 min facilitated Interactive Virtual Learning Experience

    A Virtual Learning & Networking Event


    How Do You Best Support the Modern Worker?

    Let's point out a few facts.

    • The L&D industry was already riding a tidal wave of change over the last few years.
    • We just condensed about seven years of innovations into nine months.
    • Many people in the corporate workforce now work remotely.

    So, where do we fit in as L&D professionals? Has our role changed within the workforce? If so, how? How does all this change impact the ways we support our workforce and clients? Over the course of the next year or so, this Special Interest Group will help us better answer these questions, along with many others. Before you can go on any journey, you must understand where your starting point is. That's the goal of this first event. Where are we, as learning professionals, in relation to the rest of the industry, the expectations of our business organizations, as well as our personal careers. Once we understand this, we can better chart a course to success in the current environment. Some of the topics you can look forward to are:

    • Moving the classroom to Innovation Labs
    • Learning engagement lessons that Internet Marketing has already mastered
    • Taking the virtual experience and make sure they are not just “yet another meeting”
    • Making your content look visually appealing and finally getting past the “creative” hurdle
    • Discovering the various ways others are successfully delivering content to their learners
    • Learning the how to develop different types of media.
    • Identifying efficient strategies for creating digital support materials – job aids/cheat sheets/workbooks…oh my!
    • Defining what gamification really means and how you can finally do it yourself

    This group is meant to be an interactive experience that has once per month live elements, as well as assignments for you to do between events. Our goal is to touch on many different aspects of the ATD Capability Model, as we go through the year.

    Register now to join us as we attempt to navigate the choppy waters of change and innovation together.

    Fearless Adventures in Learning


    Successful people are resilient. They got to where they are by pushing through setbacks and learning from their mistakes. Why, then, don't our students?

    At F.A.I.L. University, failures are part of the fun. Its “Fearless Adventures In Learning” quests model research-based skill-building motivation strategies (GamED) for teachers to employ in their learning environments. You can make games that inspire your learners to unwittingly cultivate 21st Century, Social Emotional Learning (SEL), Common Core, Bloom’s higher-order thinking skills. And, of course, grit.

    From this webinar you will learn about how F.A.I.L. University encourages learners of all stripes not to give up. After attending this session, you will be able to:

    • Describe the benefits of GamED 
    • Assess the gaming preferences of your learners
    • Choose appropriate GamED design lesson strategy(ies) for your learning environment
    • Access free resources that will support your GamED design strategy
