6 Reasons You Should Attend the 2016 Allen Experience

Tired of the traditional learning conferences in which you sit for hours and listen to speakers all day? If you're ready for an experience that is designed around activity-based and hands-on sessions that deliver practical application, then the Allen Experience is for you! 

In it's third consecutive year, the Allen Experience is our premiere workshop event that is co-located with Training magazine's Online Learning Conference.  At an unbeatable value of $395, The Allen Experience is an exceptional and unique day of design for learning professionals who want proven and practical strategies, tactics, and insight to begin building or build better learning solutions that are learner-focused and driven by performance outcomes.

So, here are 6 reasons you should consider attending the 2016 Allen Experience! 




1. Activity-Based Breakouts

Attendees will close the day with a special session by Michael Allen, Simplifying Serious Learning Game Design. Based on the forthcoming 2nd edition of Michael Allen’s Guide to e-Learning, Michael will present attendees with a practical and effective means of selecting appropriate game formats, identifying the essential elements of games to be retained, restating instructional content in game design language, and merging games and instruction in ways to assure powerful learning outcomes
