Topic: Practical Tips for Designing Online or Blended Learning 

Speaker:  Timothy Anderson, ACC

As an educator or consultant, you may need to design and deliver training & courses outside the traditional method of a face-to-face setting to meet the needs of the growing number of students and organizations seeking online options. As a corporate or independent consultant, you support and mentor activity professionals individually or across the organization, often located in different states, or different areas of the same state. Whether is it is training new activity directors or providing the latest regulatory updates, a blended format or online delivery can be a favorable way to reach many people. So where do you begin and what tools will you use? Part 1 of this session will look at the basic design and delivery for online or blended training and the various tools to support the delivery. Part 2 will take a hands-on approach in which participants will design a basic training module.

Topic:  Building a Bigger World Through Lifelong Learning

Speaker:  Melanie VanVickle

The world can seem small for those in senior living. Loss of home and community can lead to isolation and depression. A robust lifelong learning program creates a bigger world, one that re-engages seniors with their own experiences and knowledge and promotes meaningful connections with those around them.

As the importance of lifelong learning has been realized in senior communities, activity professionals are being challenged to create educational opportunities for the seniors in their care.
A dynamic lifelong learning program offers opportunities for seniors to connect with the larger world on a daily basis. Appreciating science and nature helps to shine a light on the beauty and wonder of our physical world. Learning about different cultures through art, food and history provides a richness that leads to anticipation, and helps seniors live with curiosity and experience moments of wonder.

Lifelong learning connects seniors as they discuss shared knowledge and learn new things together. These connections provide a sense of wellbeing. Seniors that are engaged in this manner feel valued as individuals.
The presenter will offer ideas on elevating activity programing by providing examples, ideas and techniques that will engage seniors and enrich the lives of the seniors in a wide variety of care settings.

The goal of this session is to demonstrate the value of creating a rich environment of learning within senior communities and providing effective ways to achieve this goal.
