A Disney Inspired Approach to Learning: The Learners’ Declaration of Rights | Recorded Webinar


60 minutes

In the spirit of the July 4th celebration of independence, this presentation shares a learners’ declaration of rights. Learning must deliver organizational objectives. That’s why the program exists. But despite the logic behind those objectives, learners often need something different: emotional connection to the content.

Master showman and communicator Walt Disney knew how to engage those emotional connections. He once said, “The gap between entertainment and educational represents an old and untenable viewpoint.” And he proved it too. The programs Disney developed, for the public and internally for Disney employees, were informative and moving. When entertainment and learning are aligned Disney style, the results are magical: participants pay attention, they absorb information, they change behavior.

In this insightful presentation, explore the ways in which Walt’s engagement strategies meet learner needs. Join us and celebrate the learners’ declaration of rights.
