BYOD: Facilitating for Today’s Mobile-enhanced Audiences

Whether you plan for, design or deliver training – this session is for you!

Any time you’re in a meeting, class, or at a conference and look around the room you’re likely to see a number of people seemingly paying more attention to their mobile devices than to the topic at hand.

Those devices are not going away. Our challenge is keeping our face-to-face audiences engaged while competing with myriad mobile devices. The solution to this challenge is to leverage the devices themselves.

In this session you’ll learn a number of ways that they can be used to enhance face-to-face learning experiences.

We’ll explore techniques to keep learners engaged using gamification, social media, and more. We’ll discuss and share a number of activities that enhance learning using the devices learners are bringing into the workshops anyway.

Bring your phone and learn first-hand how to: 

   Focus participants’ attention on your materials using their mobile devices

   Incorporate participants’ mobile devices into your events

   Create activities that enhance your events while engaging your participants with their mobile devices

   Evaluate the effectiveness of using mobile devices in your activities

 Supported ATD Competencies: 

Instructional Design, Training Delivery, Learning Technologies
