January 2020 Workshop
Today's Trends in Digital Learning and Experiences Getting Started with Prototyping
L&D Philly wants to prep you to hit the ground running and give you the tools and knowledge to help your team and organization jump ahead this year. In part 1, participants will look at current trends and practical ways to apply them, and part 2 will explore and play with prototyping learning experiences using Marvel app and diving deeper with Adobe XD.
Part One - Trends in Learning Today : Where Should I Focus and What Should I Apply
Join L&D Philly for this in-depth look at what tools, design, and technologies we should be focused on in learning today and what's just around the corner. We'll dissect what technology will be enhancing learning and what we need to get excited about and start planning how to integrate into our solutions. What can we learn from the buzz and new tools appearing in the consumer and corporate environments, and how can we take advantage of them to help our users learn. This fun session will give you dozens of ideas and reboot your brain for fresh perspectives on how to enhance your learning today.
Part Two - Getting Started with Prototyping: Turning Ideas into Reality
Whether you are creating a new project, developing an app, or simply launching a new responsive course, prototyping can help you better understand what’s working and what needs to be changed. In this session, you will explore the latest strategies in prototyping. You will learn about specific tools, techniques, and workflows that will help you kick off any project the right way. You will discuss how to communicate a concept, beginning with low-fidelity prototypes, gather user feedback, and translate this into high-fidelity prototypes before you start development. You will leave this session with tools to turn your concepts into reality!

PACDA Partner, Meet the Author at the Pyramid Club, cordially invites PACDA Members for a discussion with Mindie Barnett.
Meet the Author is delighted that Mindie Barnett, is joining us on February 13th to discuss her book Intermission: How Fervor, Friendships and Faith Took Me to The Second Act.
In this funny and inspiring memoir of change and growth, publicist Mindie Barnett shares the secrets to keeping the faith and managing to thrive while starting your own second act.
After finding the courage to leave her perfect-on-paper marriage, Mindie Barnett shifted the spotlight to herself. An expert at helping her clients pivot and put their best foot forward, it was now time to focus on her own second act. She committed herself to opening her heart and mind and bringing uplifting experiences into her life—even as it turned upside down. From tap lessons at her daughter’s dance school to a mid-life Bat Mitzvah ceremony, from running a half-marathon to seeking help from beyond the grave, from traditional talk therapy to consulting the angels, her journey covered all the bases as she juggled owning a business, the kids’ new schedules, and dating all over again in the age of texts and Tinder.
Sometimes, the show must stop before it can go on. In Intermission, Mindie provides an inspirational guide to kick-starting your life that will resonate with women everywhere facing big life changes.
