We can also provide remote or on-site half-day, full-day or multi-day customized learning events for your entire team (including a keynote for senior executives and managers, the return on investment, an overview of the most common issues, best practices, and a complete review of how to comply with the relevant standards for those who need that level of detail.)
For such a learning event, we encourage you to consider inviting executives, task force members, administrators, content contributors, as well as a sampling of content owners, editors, developers, and other stakeholders. Or possibly representatives from your third-party collaborators, such as your advertising agency.
Such immersion also provides orientation benefits:
-gives a more precise framework
-gets a critical mass of your community equipped with a common vocabulary
-provides the option of a “kick-off” event (including that a senior executive could open the event with introductory remarks)
-builds buy-in for the approach becoming how you “roll”
-provides David and his team with a deep immersion into the ecosystem of issues, dynamics, vocabulary, and current learning levels of your group
-allows us to test customization if we will be providing the event more than once in your organization
We can bring our courses on-site to you, or develop training carefully tailored to your learning outcomes. For example, we’ll often bring our web accessibility courses on-site, customizing so it will be all about the site or product your team is working on. The result is that your team learns a common approach together while ending the day with solutions to problems they were already working on solving.
Our custom training clients include Honda, the National Research Council, the Society of Graphic Designers of Canada, the Association of Manitoba Archivists, the Arts and Cultural Industries Association of Manitoba, and the Center for Plain Language ().
Our typical offering is a half-day course (on-site or online) where we can teach a group of people our offered custom content.
We provide one-on-one coaching on pretty well all our course topics (and even some we don’t have courses on, such as one-on-one JAWS training).
For example, a one-on-one coaching package with a specific learning outcome would include:
- a teleconsultation session with David Berman and one of his trainers where we assess your goals, needs, current level of knowledge, experience, and language requirements
- up to three hours of one-on-one coaching, where you move through all the steps (e.g. for accessible video training we would teach you the entire process of making a video accessible) on the platform of your choice (this coaching could be all at once, or broken up into as many chunks as makes sense for your workflow)
- a PDF of the portion of our course material regarding the topic
- access to our specific recipes regarding the course topic (e.g. how to make videos accessible).
That package typically costs $495. You could also then buy additional hours of consulting or coaching as needed.
