DESCRIPTION: Join us for a fun and creative after-hours outing! As a follow up to our September session on Creating Compelling eLearning Visuals Metaphors With Your Smartphone, we'll be meeting at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Friday, October 18th from 5:45-7:45pm to photograph images as backgrounds for your next eLearning project. No experience needed! If you missed our 9/18 session and are an ATDNYC member, you can catch up with that session’s materials beforehand in the Member's section of the ATD NYC site.
We'll provide all registrants with a short list of classic eLearning topics (Onboarding, Information Security, Sexual Harassment, etc.) as our scavenger hunt topics. Your goal will be to find and photograph one or more images to use as backgrounds for each of those topics. After our visual scavenger hunt at the museum, we'll meet up outside the museum and walk to a local restaurant TBD where we'll enjoy casual dinner and conversation, and share and compare our visual inspirations.
IMPORTANT Met Museum Rules: Admission is pay-what-you-wish for all NY State residents with and NY, NJ, CT students with ID; it is $25 for all others.
