    The Role of Curiosity in Your Learning Spaces


    In this original module, Sheila will invite you to consider The Role of Curiosity in Your Learning Spaces!


    Would you like to:

    • Experience the value of curiosity in learning?
    • Generate ideas for using curiosity to engage learners?
    • Transform the learner to a curious mindset?

    If you said yes, then Shush! Don’t tell them, show them!


    If you want it for yourself, come take part in an experiential learning opportunity that models the behaviors that bring about Curiosity in Your Learning Spaces!




    Facilitated by: Sheila Gail Corbin


    Known for her conversational style, Sheila creates safe spaces where learners can get uncomfortable enough to try out new thoughts, feelings, and practices that lead to their personal and professional growth.


    Sheila’s personal development story reflects her passion for learning and development. Her work story includes business and non-profit settings, from manufacturing and distribution centers to corporate offices and volunteer workshops. Her expertise has been shaped through her collaboration with executives, mid-level managers, frontline leaders, and frontline employees at Oshkosh B’ Gosh, Gap, Servpro, Goodwill, Dollar General, Comcast, and Toastmasters.


    Passionate about her own and others’ growth and development, Sheila earned her BA in Management Human Resources, in 2002, from Trevecca Nazarene University; where she is enthusiastically pursuing her MA, in Organizational Leadership. EGD (expected graduation date) October 2017.


    Sheila is an active Toastmaster member and promotes the organization as an avenue for basic and advanced learning and development opportunities. Her Distinguished Toastmaster status represents countless hours of service in her local club and district level projects. Her favorite program is Speechcraft, an old fashioned name for forward-looking skill development. Sheila has coached and mentored over forty people in this program to date.


    Sheila happily downsized in 2015 and found a perfect-for-now small house in Springfield, Tennessee. She enjoys casual gatherings with her daughter, son and daughter-in-law, and five gorgeously growing grandchildren – not often enough! Next step, “tiny house?”

    Serious Shoestrings: Designing Deeper eLearning Without Breaking the Bank


    Too much of elearning is woeful. Much is just tarted-up information dump and knowledge test, which won’t lead to meaningful outcomes. The reasons are understandable, if not excusable; there are too many people who don't understand learning design, there are misconceptions about subject matter experts, the tools have the wrong focus, and there are unrealistic expectations about time frames and resources required. We need to do better, and the good news is, we can. When we look at most design processes, we see inflection points that give us leverage. With a deeper understanding of learning and small changes in what is currently producing the ordinary, we can produce real outcomes. Serious eLearning. In this workshop, we’ll get hands-on to work through the elements of deep learning, and review design processes to uncover the opportunities for improvement. Come participate in this interactive exploration of what learning can and should be.


    Schedule for the day: 


    There will be time for last minute registration and networking between 8:00 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. The workshop will begin promptly at 8:30 a.m. and will run until 3:30 with a break for lunch from 11:30 to 12:15.

    Participative Meeting Title:


    The Revolution Learning & Development Needs to Have



    Interactive Meeting Description:


    The data is convincing: L&D isn’t doing near what it could and should, and what it is doing it is doing badly. L&D needs to change! In this session, we’ll explore the pressures that are requiring new forms of learning in organizations, the missed opportunities for L&D to contribute, and systematic ways in which L&D can increase it’s relevance to the organization. By more closely aligning with how we think, work, and learn, by being more closely tied to the business, and by leveraging technology in strategic ways, L&D can be a valuable contributor to organizational success. You’ll leave with a framework to move L&D forward into the information age.
