    Walt Disney knew it and he had Mary Poppins sing it. A spoon full of sugar does help the medicine go down. He once proclaimed, “The normal gap between what is generally regarded as ‘entertainment’ and what is defined ‘educational’ represents an old and untenable viewpoint.” 

    The entertainments Disney created were both informative and enjoyable—unlike many learning programs. When entertainment and learning are aligned Disney style, the results are magical; participants pay attention, they absorb information, and they change behavior. 

    In this session, you'll learn how to...

    • Identify strategies Walt Disney used to draw people into an experience so you can apply specific tactics to capture learner attention and maintain focus
    • Examine the techniques Disney’s team used to transform rides into immersive environments so you can create your own captivating learning experiences

    Research indicates that images are vital for engaging, as well as informing, our audiences. Or a catchy tune can aid as a reminder tool. But in the rush to find the perfect image or music, the role of copyright and licensing may be overlooked.

She has a passion for raising awareness of the role of copyright in our daily lives. We are all consumers and creators of copyright-protected works, and understanding some copyright basics can help us avoid unpleasant “surprises.”

    • explain the importance of copyright awareness
    • identify appropriate sources for finding suitable content
