Florida State University Hosts ISD@FSU Conference

Press Release

ISD@FSU Professional Development and Networking Conference

Florida State University’s Instructional Systems Program is hosting a two-day professional development and networking conference at the FSU’s Turnbull Florida State Conference Center on April 24-25, 2014.

The ISD@FSU Conference is celebrating 40 years of awarding graduate degrees in the areas of instructional systems, learning technologies, and performance improvement. The conference is open to alumni, students, and friends of the program.

Professor Jim Klein conceived of the idea exactly a year ago. Says Klein: “The conference gives us a chance to celebrate our past achievements, as well as help us move the instructional systems program forward. We’re excited about the positive response from our alumni and hope many members of the local instructional design community will attend.”

The conference begins with an opening reception at the FSU Alumni Center the evening of April 23, and will continue for two days, ending 4:30 Friday, April 25.

Co-Chair Cathy Tencza spoke about the conference: “It is always a joy to visit Tallahassee in the spring. I’m especially excited that we have professional colleagues coming in from four continents to celebrate and learn.”

A sample of program topics include:
• Linking Data, Decisions and Actions to Improve Performance
• Hands-On ELearning: Transforming Content-Focused Courses
• So You Want to be a Consultant?
• With Whom Are You “Talking”: Learning Analysis
• Creating Irresistible ELearning
• Change Management
• Designing Motivational Training
• Conducting an Effective Needs Assessment
• Disruptive Innovation and ISD
• Systematically Designed Gamification for Nonprofit Board Engagement
Retired San Diego State University professor and best-selling author, Dr. Allison Rossett, will be the final keynote speaker, finishing out the conference with laughter through her presentation ‘What Can Learning Professionals Learn from Infomercials?’

“This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for our community to meet with and learn from 40 years of accomplished professionals who graduated from the program that arguably started the conversation on Instructional Design and Performance Improvement,” according to Co-Chair Sue Ebbers.

Registration is $145 after April 5. Community attendance is welcomed.
