The winner of the 2015 AITD Best Blended Learning Solution award, as well as a Brandon Hall Excellence award, MindMatters is one of those once-in-a-lifetime projects.

Funded by the Federal Department of Health and delivered by Beyondblue, the goal of MindMatters is to teach tens of thousands of secondary school staff around Australia how to improve mental health outcomes for their students. Sounds like a great goal, but the content is complex, it requires long-term commitment from staff, and their engagement is entirely voluntary. So how do you do it?

In this session, Andrew Duval—the project’s creative director and learning strategist—will give you a tour of the solution, and talk you through the key decisions and strategies, including failures and frustrations, behind one of the most innovative learning design projects in the world.

Session highlights:

  1. Creating a premium user experience
  2. The role of high-end video production
  3. The power of humour and emotion
  4. Designing for long-term behavioural change
