Teaching styles can shape the way we all learn. Even Harry Potter can attest to that. At Hogwarts, the school where Harry Potter and his friends study magic, we witness several instruction examples in action. Each of these instructors has important lessons to share with us regarding effective instructional design and training delivery.

In this presentation on October 13, 2020, at 6:30 p.m. Central Time, Jamye Sagan will profile several Hogwarts instructors, and analyze the effectiveness of their lesson delivery. Within the lens of each professor’s profile, we will share more practical tips on tackling common training issues, as well as provide some real-life (aka Muggle) training examples.

By the end of the presentation, you will have even more tools to confidently tackle many basic training requests.

Even if you have neither read the Harry Potter books nor watched the movies, you can still learn something from the Hogwarts instructors. STC-SoCenTX strongly encourages members and non-members to join us for an evening of learning about instructional design teaching delivery in Hogwart’s professor’s style. Allow this workshop to bring a fresh perspective to the way you teach other disciplines within Technical Communication. Don’t forget to mark your calendars for October 13th at 6:30 p.m. Central Time. You will be glad you did.
