    We can tell stories. We can facilitate learning. But how do we use stories to facilitate learning?

    This session is designed to fill that void. We'll start from the beginning – mining your own life and experiences for relevant stories to tell, regardless of the topic you're teaching. Then we'll discuss how to pull from other disciplines, like literature, film, and writing, to help you select, structure and shape stories that can facilitate connections between you, your learners, and the material. You'll also learn about the characteristics of stories that are most useful for facilitating learning. Next, we'll explore delivering these stories using tips that will help you bring stories to life, reinforce your point, and ideally, encourage learners to apply your message to their own experiences. Finally, we'll address how you can help learners find and tell their own stories. You'll leave this session with templates and strategies that will help you apply what you've learned about facilitating with stories back on the job.

    You will walk away with:

    • Strategies for facilitating with story
    • A list of methods for mining your own life and experiences for useful stories
    • Tips on how to structure stories so that the intent is clear, the listeners are captivated, and the connection to the content is evident

    Ready to take your Articulate Storyline skills
    to the next level?

    Join us on April 16th in all-day hands-on workshop, Mastering Variables in Storyline.

    Once you’ve mastered the basics in Articulate Storyline (adding slides, video, audio, graphics, and questions), it’s time to take your skills--and your courses--to the next level. You can do that with variables. But mastering variables can be elusive for many. What can variables do? How do you know if you need them? How do you set them up properly? In this hands-on workshop series, you’ll have a chance learn just how powerful (and not so intimidating) variables can be. You’ll learn when to use text variables, number variables, and true/false variables with real-world examples such as personalizing a scenario, adding badges and points, as well as customizing content and navigation. 

    After attending this program, you will be able to:

    • Determine when to use the three different types of variables
    • Personalize a course using avatars and the learner’s name
    • Add gamification elements such as points and badges

    NOTE:

    • This is an intermediate/advanced session and requires a working knowledge of Storyline including states, layers, and triggers. 
    • Please plan to come with a laptop with software applications installed (trial version OK) in order to get the most out of this experience
