Building an Agile Toolkit for e-Learning Production
9:15 - 10:15a (Georgian I)
About Noah Kreischer
When learning teams apply an Agile methodology to the ADDIE framework, they create and iterate better, higher quality eLearning modules faster. In this presentation, we'll share key Agile and Lean mindsets, principles, and tools that can help your team build collaborative partnerships, achieve quality eLearning assets, jump-start production, reduce costs, and achieve consistency across the curriculum. No prior knowledge of Agile or Lean required!

How did you get started in your field?
It started when I was working on my undergraduate degree in business at the University of Findlay. While attending school I worked in a center for teaching and learning technologies. My role was to help faculty leverage educational technology in the classroom (virtual or in person). In this role I was mainly aligned with the use of the Blackboard LMS. After graduation, I moved into a full time role as an LMS administrator and focused all my efforts in support the university’s online presence. Later I relocated with my wife and got a job at the University of Cincinnati doing pretty much the same thing; driving usage of Blackboard through a faculty technology support center. While at UC, I received a master’s degree in Instructional Design and Technology.
What is a talent you have that is unrelated to the work you do?
I have one talent/area of interest that has, for many years, been unrelated to my work. That is aviation and flying airplanes. After UC I moved into a consulting role with TiER1 Performance. Since joining TiER1 I have been fortunate enough to merge my interests and talent by landing a contract with a major U.S. airline. Now my time is spent working in the instructional design and technology domain focused on aviation subject matter. It’s the best of both worlds.
What excites you most about the topic you will be sharing at the conference?
I am most excited about my topic because I believe it provides a strong framework for learning development that can be applied fairly quickly. My goal for the presentation is to make it clear what is needed to follow the framework and how the attendees can build their own agile toolkit.
