10:45 AM - 11:45 AM
Wednesday, April 20
The Go1 team warmly welcomes you to a candid, fireside chat-style conversation moderated by Lauren Waldman of Learning Pirate. Lauren, founder and learning scientist, will be chatting with Patricia Poindexter and Sheilvon Troutman, the learning team from InterPark., who will reveal insights into their organization’s 20-year journey to building a legacy of learning.
Lauren, Patricia, and Sheilvon will delve into:
- How the brain processes information, and how that impacts designing and integrating learning technologies
- How technologies, including learning management systems, need to be constructed with learners and brain function in mind
- Tips and tricks to reinforce learning, especially in online environments
The InterPark team will also share how they were able to create thoughtful succession plans, inspire a workforce to learn with and from them, and how they’ve navigated the good, the bad, and the most humorous along the way. Come ready to laugh, be inspired, and learn!
