I've posted several entries related to Story and Narrative since TIS decided to open this blog (and I intend to continue), but sometimes the abbreviated format of a blog isn't the optimal way to communicate an idea (or to understand it, to take a learner-centric perspective).
Just as a 'blend' is more often than not the best overall delivery strategy for instruction, I wanted to share an opportunity for those who want to see/hear the 'long version' of why I'm such a fan and advocate of Story as an instructional strategy.
Late next week (Aug 16-17), I'll be presenting as part of a 'virtual conference' (read: you can attend from the comfort of your office/home) hosted by the eLearning Guild.
I'll be taking the cyberwaves at 1:15p ET on Thursday 8/16. If you are interested in 'attending', you can visit the event's website to learn more.
I know the talk will be recorded, but I'm not sure if the archived versions will only be available to registered participants, eLG members, or if they will be made open to the general public, so why take a chance? It's quite affordable and you'll have access (either live or archived) to several terrific presenters on a variety of "Advanced e-Learning Instructional Design" topics.
I hope to 'see' you there!
