Training Series: Designing The Most Effective Association eLearning Programs

When Dr. Amanda Batson presented at the ASAE Annual Conference and Exhibition in Atlanta, Georgia (ASAE13), she asked for feedback from the conference participants.

Batson said she always learns when she teaches and this conference was no exception. Below are three takeaways from session participants:

  1. Association leaders want to lead creatively yet recognize organizational resistance to change.
  2. Associations are considering mobile as a learning delivery option but the challenge is in the details.
  3. Associations keep curriculum in an academic box and do not realize the transformative, sustainable power of a written curriculum for professional development.

The last item grabs your attention. While many associations are at least planning professional development offerings (eLearning programs) for members, not all programs are designed using the most effective tactics.

Does your association have a clear, effective eLearning Program from strategy to evaluation?
