Hello All. My name is Dale Hisiger, coming to you from Armonk, New York. That’s about 35 miles north of Manhattan. I’ve been in the L&D space for 30 years, so I certainly have seen a lot of changes to the tools we use to design our programs. What hasn’t changed though is the importance of clear Learning Objectives. They set the stage for the picture of success of your program, enable your sponsors to realistically understand if the organizational needs will be met, and provide the foundation for you to engage in a creative design process that will delight and energize your participants.

I took the LDX course a few years ago and have been a LDX Coach 3 times. I have a Masters Degree in Counseling Psychology, Post Masters Certificate in Organizational Development & Change Management, Certification as an Executive Coach and various assessment tools.
My four main competencies are Coaching, Facilitation, Instructional Design and Change Management Strategy.

Please connect with me on Linkedin at: linkedin.com/in/dalehisiger

I look forward to working with all of you to facilitate the development of great LDX material.

Hi everyone! My name is Jennifer Beech and I’m a freelance instructional designer and technical writer. I’m working on my company info, logo, design, etc. Right now, I have a name: B-Side Learning. Here’s my Linkedin profile: https://www.linkedin.com/in/jennifergbrooksbeech-learninganddevelopment/

A topic I am passionate about has developed recently–helping teachers and others transition to learning and development. I’ve been in the field for about a year so I love passing on what I have learned. I am endlessly learning about writing and storytelling in learning.

Welcome, @TsMekong - sorry for the delay in this welcome! It sounds as if you’re a natural teacher.
Please check out our resources in the LX community and share your own.

We also offer a separate, free, 5-week LXD course each quarter. This is a great way to see NovoEd’s platform in action while also learning/engaging with some of the same people in this LX community.

The last day to register for the current cohort is tomorrow, April 22. Go here to register if you haven’t already.
