In the article eLearning: Facilitation, Interaction, and Engagement, Instructional Design Consultant Dr. Amanda Batson defines the three components that will drive tomorrow’s successful eLearning programs. Dr. Batson has worked with clients like ASAE, and as a former ASAE University online instructor, one of her lasting lessons was the importance of active and ongoing engagement in eLearning.
On Tuesdays this June, Dr. Batson will present features of Next Generation Unified Learning. The webinar series is complimentary and all sessions will be recorded for later viewing.

- How do you develop standards-based courses for a hybrid environment?
Competency Modules & Instructor Training (June 23)

In her consulting for the Professional Ski Instructors of America/American Association of Snowboard Instructors (PSIA-AASI), her emphasis was on education leadership in an environment of continuous improvement. PSIA-AASI is an organization with some 33,000 members and a 50-year history of commitment to quality member education. Blending in-person and online learning has long been a mainstay of PSIA-AASI. When education, as in their case, is already at high levels of excellence, leading to new levels can be challenging and filled with opportunities. Leaders who are active, dynamic champions of education are required and PSIA-AASI executive and volunteer leaders are such leaders.
