This past October, one of Bravo LT’s very own instructional designers, Bethany Daniels, was chosen to present at AACE E-Learn 2015 in Kona, Hawaii. This annual world conference, centered around e-learning, is a hub for information and innovation in the education community, so we are immensely proud of Bethany, not only for her many talents, but also for receiving the prestigious honor of presenting her research to such a distinguished audience.

At the conference, Bethany discussed two papers she co-authored: Minding the Gap Between Knowledge and Experience Using the Next Generation of e-Learning Environments, and Using Pedagogical Agents to Create Engaging, Personalized e-Learning—both studies on innovative e-learning techniques.

Using Pedagogical Agents[1] studies the positive results of using simulated humans or human-like characters within an e-learning interface. She also expertly shares best practices for utilizing these agents and shares real-world development scenarios in which this tool increases learner engagement. Minding the Gap[2] focuses primarily on the shortcomings of traditional e-learning methods, as well as revolutionary techniques to correct these mistakes. Furthermore, Bethany discusses the organization impact these improved techniques would have on learning.

Again, we are so proud of Bethany and this notable accomplishment, and we are looking forward to her AACE E-Learn presentation next year!
