Happy Wednesday! Oftentimes we (and our clients) are asked to update training sessions that feel like they’ve been done many times before. HR, compliance, regulatory issues are common culprits. Learning professionals know that it needs to be more than just a PowerPoint presentation, but aren’t sure what else to do.
One option would be a form of a infographic video. These are video-like and communicate a message or procedure (often without words) in a fast-paced, entertaining way. Check out the retelling of a fairy tale below:
I had forgotten how violent that story is! But as I watched it, I immediately saw ways that the format could be used as job-support, and training…especially training sessions that are really more about communicating than transferring learning. At BLP, we’re always trying to find the story in the materials, this is one way to format the telling of the found story!
So the next time you’re updating a PowerPoint presentation or helping a SME create a training course, consider how you could use graphical representations to communicate and tell your story in a new way!
