eLearning SIG

The eLearning SIG is a supportive network for individuals interested in eLearning and discovering practical ways to implement online learning in their organizations. Community members share their knowledge and experiences on trends, ideas, and best practices in the eLearning industry. This SIG generally meets the third Thursday of the month over lunch with participants both on location and connected via the web (when possible). Be sure to check the events calendar for specific meeting dates.


 Next Meeting: September 21,  11:30 am - 1:00 pm
Location: TBD

Session Title: Growing an Effective Portfolio

Description: Instructional Designers are often told we need a portfolio of work, but it isn’t always that easy.

Learn how to grow an effective portfolio!

Topics include:

  • Importance
  • Organizing
  • Planting
  • Growing and Maintenance
  • Reaping Significant Returns
