10:45-12:00 Eastern time, Thursday, February 21
As learning business professionals, we may understand the benefit of more engaging and interactive learning. But it can still be a challenge to deliver.
In this session, we’ll look at one organization’s shift from posting recordings of live conference-style sessions to be watched for continuing legal education credit to providing an engaging learning experience that uses pre-recorded live sessions as the point of departure.
While the pros of building a more engaging online experience may be self-evident, the session will also cover the cons of such an approach when working with a large amount of content and volunteer subject matter experts.
As an active participant, you’ll gain insight into how you can use competitive analysis to build strategies for marketing and project planning, ideas for helping your SMEs see past the standard lecture formats, and get a walk-through of how one organization is modifying its recorded sessions using Articulate 360 (though the general approach is tool-agnostic).
This session will be led by Elisabeth Rocha and Megan Knox Moore, who drove the shift to more engaging online learning at the Illinois Institute for Continuing Legal Education and are intimately involved in its creation and rollout.
Megan Knox Moore is the director of programs for the Illinois Institute for Continuing Legal Education (IICLE), where she is responsible for directing the continuing legal education programs and services of the Institute. Prior to her tenure as the director of programs, she served as the director of publications, managing the publication and development of IICLE’s library of more than 100 Illinois-specific practice handbooks. Previously, Megan served as a program planner for IICLE.
Before joining IICLE, she was a staff attorney for the Legislative Reference Bureau, where she drafted legislation and advised members of the Illinois General Assembly and their staffs on legislative proposals concerning local government, taxation, public utilities, and financial regulation. Megan is an attorney admitted to the bar in Illinois. She earned her JD from Vermont Law School in South Royalton, Vermont, in 2001 and a BA in English, cum laude, from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale in 1998.
She is an active member of the Illinois State Bar Association, where she is a member of the Legal Education, Admission and Competence Committee, and the Chicago Bar Association, where she serves as a legislative liaison for the Chicago Bar Association Alliance for Women. In addition, Megan is a member of the Association for Continuing Legal Education (where she has served as co-chair of the Awards Committee and now serves on the Core Curriculum and Membership Development Committees).
