This two-day professional conference is designed to showcase innovative Instructional Design and development (IDD) projects and digital learning for adult professional education including corporate, industry, government, professional continuing education (e.g., medical), and higher education. Presentations will include practical, hands-on learning experiences that can immediately be applied to improve job performance as well as specific examples of client-based projects for real-world application. This is a low-cost, high-value event that will be rich in content and in meaningful networking with established leaders. The event also serves as an annual orientation and professional networking event for UGA IDD students.
