This two-day professional conference showcases innovative Instructional Design and Development (IDD) projects and eLearning design strategies. Sessions and demonstrations are presented by students, scholars, and professionals from a variety of contexts including corporate, industry, government, professional continuing education (e.g., medical), higher education, and others. Content includes 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 is 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.
