4 Atlanta Learning-Industry Events You Shouldn't Miss - November 2010

As always, there are several great events for learning professionals this month in the Atlanta area.  Here are four in the learning industry you shouldn't miss. Plus one where I'm presenting as well.

November 3, Field Trip to SCAD Atlanta's Digital Media Center

Join the Technology Association of Georgia for a field trip to SCAD Atlanta's state of the art digital media center. Atlanta is the eighth largest media market in the United States and reportedly this educational facility will help push us higher.

Register for the TAG Field Trip.

November 4, eLearning! Summit

OK, this one isn't in Atlanta, but it's a virtual conference about eLearning strategy so we all can attend. And it is free! Over 1600 learning professionals are expected to participate.

November 11, 11 Habits for a Highly Successful BPM Program

As I've mentioned before, a great thing about Business Process Management (and the Technology Association of Georgia BPM Society) is that its processes almost always include training as a vital component. IBM WebSphere associates will discuss how the culture of an organization is a collection of habits that affect business performance as well as best practices for eliminating barriers to success.

November 17, Exploring Free Web Technologies for Instructional Development

This ISPI Atlanta should be an interesting look to the future in more ways than one. UGA Learning, Design, and Technology Studio graduate students will showcase up-and-coming online learning development tools such as Udutu, Prezi, WizIQ, and others.

Look for details on the ISPI Atlanta website.

And then there's one more this month that hopefully you will also enjoy. 

November 3, Think Small: Creating Effective, Quick Hit eLearning

In this ASTD Atlanta South GIG session, I'll look at methods for creating short, but effective, eLearning curriculums. We'll also discuss ways to position key content into eLearning and how to best utilize the 'nice to know' information that subject matter experts love so that it can be utilized later.
