Become a Member!
Join us for these informal events open to non-members.
If you haven’t been to a Special Interest Group (SIG) meeting this year, you’re missing out on one of ATD-OC’s greatest member benefits!
September’s meeting will be a “mini-conference” of at least three Special Interest Group leaders sharing their passion and experiences with you.
Our questions this evening:
All attendees will receive a “Training Value Questionnaire” to help you get focused on training value.
Our learners use visuals in training to help them learn, remember, and later apply information. So as we incorporate graphics into our training content, it won't do just to select any stock photo. Each image, as well as each word, must support a learning objective.
How can you include graphical assets in your training that remain relevant? Kimberly Goh will share a resource that she uses -- Canva -- and a technique that helped learners in her eLearning module better connect procedural best practices to job expectations.
Bring your laptop (or tablet) and follow along!
Get to know Your Special Interest Groups!

If your training program is a key component of an organizational change or improvement initiative, mindful communications will serve as a critical component of its success. Otherwise, your program may fall under the list of ineffective initiatives that consume organizational time and money.
Key to creating mindful communications is a communication plan. A communication plan will serve as a road map to ensure that your message gets to your audience. But before that, it helps you test assumptions, clarify your team's goals, and identify the method for a consistent, singular message is delivered over all communication channels.
Join us as we walk through creating a communication plan.
More details to come, but it sounds interesting so far, yes?
