Event Description

Tears and laughter: The role of emotion in learning

Caroline Freeman, Director of Design, Brightwave Group

With information ubiquitous and colleague experience becoming an ever-greater priority, certain expectations of L&D are changing:

 

While the digital learning experience has focused on making the learner know something, it's becoming more important to make today's learner feel something.

 

To drive productivity and engagement in the enterprise means to engage and enthuse your learners. This isn’t done through the delivery of facts or complex technical pedagogies – it's done through our emotions.

 

In this session for Mental Health Awareness week we will cover:

 

  • Why L&D needs to deliver authentically engaging experiences
  • The neuroscience linking behaviour change to emotional engagement
  • How to design learning technologies that win hearts AND minds
  • How video-based and gamified solutions can be directed towards affective change
  • Real-life examples of digital learning that successfully appeals to the emotions.

Caroline Freeman, Director of Design, Brightwave Group

Caroline had over 20 years' experience in interactive media and broadcast TV before moving into e-learning, and is now responsible for ensuring the quality and creativity of Brightwave's learning design team, where she has worked as both a Project Manager and Senior Designer for a broad range of public sector and private clients.  Her approach to solutions' design is to use her experience in the games industry and TV to create effective, creative learning courses / campaigns which incorporate learning portals, CMS's and social media. This unique perspective was recognised at the 2016 Learning Technologies Awards where Caroline was recognised in the Learning Designer of the Year category. Caroline is a fluent French speaker.
