Presented by the STC IDL SIG

About the webinar

Education plays a crucial role in the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling. At Hogwarts, the school where Harry Potter and his friends study magic, we witness several examples of instruction in action. Each of these professors – whether terrible or terrific –has important lessons to share with us regarding effective instructional design and training delivery.

In this sequel presentation to “Lessons Learned”, we will profile more Hogwarts professors, and analyze the effectiveness of their lesson delivery. Within the lens of each professor profile, we will share more practical tips on tackling common training issues, as well as provide some real-life (aka Muggle) training examples.
By the end of the presentation, you will have even more tools to confidently tackle many basic training requests.
Even if you have neither read the Harry Potter books nor watched the movies, you can still learn something from the Hogwarts instructors. Plus, even if you have not viewed the first “Lessons Learned” presentation, you will still gain the knowledge needed to handle most training requests.

Takeaways:

  • Include a variety of activities and techniques in your curriculum to help learners maintain interest, engage with the content, and remember key concepts.
  • Balance your knowledge of course material with knowledge of what your audience needs to know and be able to skillfully handle any distractions.
  • Know when and how to reward your learners, whether by giving a physical reward or by offering verbal and written praise.

Intended Audience

The content will be introductory (e.g., > “101 level”) and will also be valuable to practitioner level attendees.
