Optional Workshops:

Member agencies may want to send for more than one person to the LINGOs 2012 Member meeting to be able to attend more than one of the three optional post-meeting workshops to attend. On Friday, November 30, Member Agencies have access to two exclusive, limited-space workshop opportunities:

1. Insights: Speed the Delivery of Results & Enable Success in your INGO

In this interactive workshop, exclusively available to LINGOs Member Agencies, we will explore who you are and how you interact with others with the aim of helping you speed the delivery of results and enable success—personal, professional and organizational. You will learn practical skills so that you can become more effective in your role, whether you are an individual contributor or in a leadership position.

Participants will receive a customized, 20-page personal profile which identifies strengths and areas for development, communication preferences, value you bring to the organization, and leadership style. We will explore how this Profile can be used for your personal development and possibilities for implementing this program within your organization.

2. Articulate Storyline: Advanced E-learning Made Simple for LINGOs Members

In this session with Tom Kuhlmann, staff from LINGOs Member agencies will learn how to use Articulate Storyline to build engaging, interactive courses. We’ll review the core authoring process, introduce you to key Storyline features, and then practice creating interactive content using the Slide Layers, Triggers, and States features in Storyline.
