STC Web-Telephone Seminars

IMPORTANT: Buy Viagra is no longer hosting the Web-telephone seminars at Mosaid. We are looking for other sites to host these webinars. As of November 28, we do not have a location for any upcoming webinars. If you believe your organization may be willing to support this endeavor (even on a webinar-by-webinar basis) or if you are interested in any of the upcoming webinars, please e-mail

If there is sufficient interest for any given webinar and we have a host for it, cost per person would be $20 (including GST) for STCEO members and $30 (including GST) for non-members.

Seminars are somewhat irregular for 2008. Keep an eye on for additional information about future events.

Reviews/summaries of past seminars

Instructions for Buy viagra Soft Tabs
By Melanie Curtis

On Wednesday March 8, 2006, seven of us met at the beautiful Mosaid building in Kanata for a web-telephone seminar on writing instructions. The presenter, Caroline Stern, has a doctorate in Instructional Design, and is an award-winning Buy generic Viagra of Languages and Literature. We followed the viagra online and a half long power point presentation over the web, while listening to Dr. Stern over a phone link. Using numerous examples, Dr. Stern covered a range of topics including:

  • Instructions and liability
  • Format and document design
  • Audience analysis
  • Titles
  • Introductions
  • Graphics
  • Warnings
  • Major steps
  • Conclusions

While the time restrictions prevented Dr. Stern from going into too much detail, the handouts given included a number of web site references for further information, particularly regarding usability. For $20 for STCEO members ($30 for non members), it was time and money well spent.

Instructional Design and Learning Seminar
By Melanie Curtis

Five of us met at Mosaid in Kanata on March 15, 2006, for an viagra online long web-telephone seminar on "Successful Instructional Design: Where Theory and Practice Meet." The speaker, Dr. Michael Tillmans, has a Ph.D. in Instructional Design. The seminar focused on research findings from Cognitive Psychology, specifically those related to learning, and how these findings can be applied to teaching, and to print and online learning. Dr. Tillmans described the Information Processing Model of Learning, which is a framework for how we process and respond to information from the environment. He defined five types of learning:

  • Information
  • Concepts
  • Principles
  • Procedures
  • Attitudes

Dr. Tillmans then described the best methods for teaching and learning, for each of the five learning types.

This was the first time that an STC Special Interest Group (SIG), the Instructional Design and Learning SIG, has hosted a web-telephone seminar. Unfortunately, perhaps because it was the first time, there were some technical glitches and the audio portion became disconnected about half way through, and we were unable to re-establish a connection. STCEO reimbursed their web-telephone seminar fees to all the participants in recognition of these technical problems.

Despite the technical issues, we were able to follow along with the web portion of the program, and afterwards received handouts of the power point slides, a reference list, and a teaching template. While it was only an introduction to a much broader topic, it was a starting point for understanding how to present material to aid learning.
