Interest Group (eSIG)
Transmedia Storytelling: Orienting Phillip
Transmedia has been around for awhile, but it’s usually associated
with blockbuster movies or hit video games. First there is a comic
book, then a movie, then a video game, then full length novels, and
finally we see the action figures – all about the same event or
character or topic. We are now seeing some application of this
concept in learning and development. Trainers or teachers deliver a
lesson (i.e. story) over time, using different forms of media, with
the hope that the technique helps with reinforcement, scaffolding,
and appealing to different learning styles.
Join us at this month’s eSIG to see how transmedia storytelling
can be used in a corporate setting, as we follow the story of Phillip
A. Pint getting oriented to his new job.
Also, our 10-minute demo for this month highlights ASTD
National’s new Online Tools for trainers. Get a brief look at these
free (for members) work aids and tools that can help with needs
assessments, job analysis, culture analysis, and more!
