Round Table – Best Practices / Success Stories

Looking back over our program year, we’ve had some great sessions and excellent presenters. Let’s end with a roundtable discussion of best practices and success stories.

We’ve all got stories to share and experiences to draw upon. This is your opportunity to talk shop with local experts, past presenters, and participants. The learning and development challenges you face are the same ones practitioners all over the metro face on a regular basis. At this DLF roundtable event, everyone is encouraged to share the tips and tricks of the trade that they’ve found successful. It’ll be an evening to inspire, network, equip, learn, share, and grow in your professional spheres of influence. Please come ready for an engaging discussion around topics that matter!


If you’d like to participate in a light pizza dinner, please bring $$ to contribute. We won’t be able to make change, so please bring small bills. For drinks, bring your own non-alcoholic beverage.


This event is meant to encourage audience participation and not be presenter-driven. We’ll focus on select target topics and prepare a couple of leading questions for selected topics. Then we’ll open it up for discussion, and we encourage everyone to share or ask follow up questions. We can rotate topics throughout the night as time allows.

Potential Topics:

  • Virtual and Augmented Reality
  • Academic Tools & Trends
  • Authoring Software: Storyline & Captivate
  • Mobile Learning
  • Assessment Tools
  • Storyboarding Techniques
  • Gamification
  • Best Practices in Digital Learning
  • Future of Learning (Horizon Report)
