    Reclaiming Conversation:  The Power of Talk in the Digital Age

    By Sherry Turkle

    Renowned media scholar Sherry Turkle investigates how a flight from conversation undermines our relationships, creativity, and productivity—and why reclaiming face-to-face conversation can help us regain lost ground.

    Turkle has been studying digital culture for over thirty years. Long an enthusiast for its possibilities, here she investigates a troubling consequence: at work, at home, in politics, and in love, we find ways around conversation, tempted by the possibilities of a text or an email in which we don’t have to look, listen, or reveal ourselves.

    Based on five years of research and interviews in homes, schools, and the workplace, Turkle argues that we have come to a better understanding of where our technology can and cannot take us and that the time is right to reclaim conversation. The most human—and humanizing—thing that we do.

    • Bethel University, 5885 Ridgeway Center Pkwy #100, Memphis (near Poplar and I-240)

    One of the most difficult challenges any manager faces is solving performance issues.  

    What causes slumps?  Why is most “coaching” ineffective?  Why is lasting, positive change so rare?  When are employee performance problems a result of poor management?

    This talk will explain the fundamental differences between training and coaching and when to use each.  In an interactive format, Bill Piper of Sandler Training will walk through the essential framework and underlying principles of effective coaching that drives lasting change.  Attendees will walk away with practical concepts they can implement immediately.

    Need to brush up on your Articulate Storyline skills? Or learn them from scratch?

    This highly interactive three-day workshop will prepare you to develop high quality elearning. A custom workshop is defined as teaching and training concepts specific to the participant's environment, workflows and business needs to include but not limited to —

    • preparing a storyboard for development
    • project asset management
    • good naming conventions practices
    • visual design principles
    • interaction design
    • conditional navigation

    and more.

    Note: A basic understanding of instructional design practices is assumed.

    What should I bring? You should bring your laptop with a working version of Articulate Storyline 2.

    What if I don't have Storyline? You can download a free 30-day trial version from articulate.com

    What are the workshop hours? Each workshop will begin at 9:00 a.m. and end at 4:00 p.m., with an hour break for lunch.

    Will you feed me? Yes! We're not like most workshops where you get a map of nearby restaurants as part of your packet. We want you to get the most from this training, so we're providing a hot lunch each day of training.
