“Great to meet the Nimble team in person, and network with like minded people in L&D”
“Great opportunity to get new ideas and a way to improve courses.”
Sharing his expertise on using video to take training to the next level, his hour-long interactive session and Q&A let the attendees in on the secrets of creating great-looking video without expensive equipment, and gave practical ways to use newfound skills to engage learners. He showed how a well-planned 20-minute video interview with a key expert or senior leader in an organisation can be transformed into learning content of all types – and just how effective video can be when it comes to building trust and connection.
“Learned lots of tips and inspiration for increasing levels of engagement.”
In her 30-minute interactive session, questions were posed to the audience using Slido – from identifying a need for training in an organisation to evaluating the impact of an intervention – and everything in between. The chance to discuss current approaches in small groups and the sharing of best practice and easy ways to optimise the training process and keep on top of course updates was enjoyed by all.
The session everyone was buzzing about seeing was Hannah’s ‘Demystifying ChatGPT for Learning’.
Whether they were a keen early adopter or didn’t really have a clue what ChatGPT is, the attendees left this 45-minute highly interactive session with practical ways to use the world’s most famous AI chat tool in their role right now (and she touched on a few alternatives too!).
After Hannah’s overview and live demonstrations of the tool itself (which heard audible gasps of astonishment by the attendees of what could be achieved using AI), some key applications for chat-based AI in planning and drafting elearning programmes were also shared. There was also the opportunity to consider ethical issues and potential pitfalls – and how to avoid them.
“Inspiring session around AI. If I had to choose my favourite session, it would be ChatGPT. I’ve learned so much, it was fascinating.”
The Nimble Directors Neil Hyde (Managing Director) and Alex Hathway (Commercial Director), scrubbed up nicely in their DJs and Learning Adviser Hannah Davies got the awards off to a great start. The judging process was one of the toughest ever, and the finalists in the categories of Course of the Year, Positive Business Impact and Positive Business Impact, were presented to the audience via informative videos about each finalist. You can watch their videos here.
The very worthy winners were then announced to much applause.
“Friendly atmosphere and high energy. Good to see how everyone uses Nimble and speak to the staff who really care about our feedback. Such a varied day… so helpful. Enjoyed meeting the Nimble team and finding out more about the fantastic tool. Oh and the lunch and cake were amazing too!”
