Description: An eLearning Cracker Barrel Event
This interactive, fun, and engaging “Cracker Barrel” program will give participants opportunities to learn about, discuss and share knowledge on aspects regarding e-learning that interest them most. Participants will select the e-learning themes that interest them, join a table conversation lead by one of our expert facilitators regarding those themes, moving from table to table after a specific amount of time.
What you will learn:
A Cracker Barrel is an interactive meeting format in which you, the audience, has a chance to be an expert on a topic. The session is set up with a focus on a larger theme; i.e. eLearning.
Four key experts/facilitators will lead individual sessions within a specific focused area of eLearning. The session is broken up into three groups within each of these specific topics. Each group will start in one topic lead by the facilitator/expert having an engaging and involved conversation for 15 – 20 minutes. After that time is up the group members will switch to a different topic. You will get through all three topics at the end of the session with key takeaways for your development.
