Program Overview

Program Overview Unleash the Power of Personas!! In this session, we’ll discuss tips, templates, and best practices you can start using immediately to create and apply personas in your learning strategy and design processes. We'll discuss research demonstrating how personas streamline and make your processes and outcomes more effective for learners. We'll explore examples illustrating how you can create different types of personas and apply them throughout strategy and design processes to provide powerful strategies and effective learning results. We'll practice creating a plan to gather learner information, and decide which characteristics (including roles, tasks, comfort/emotions, motivations, and environments) to use to develop personas so your strategy meets learner needs and business goals and your design supports your learners and achieves learning objectives. You'll leave with access to multiple resources to start creating and implementing personas in your own work.
