HPT Video 2020 – Nyla Spooner

From LinkedIn:

I’m a Learning Experience Designer. I create adult-learning experiences for the digital space. I believe in strategic, user-centered design that prioritizes a foundational understanding of how people learn.

I want to create transformative learning solutions that meet performance goals and change the way people feel about what they are learning.

I don’t believe in being limited by a singular technology when creating learning experiences, so I’ve tried to “learn a little about a lot” of edtech. That being said – I am an experienced Articulate Storyline specialist, have video editing experience, and have worked in Adobe Captivate.

I practice what I preach, and am committed to my continuous education. I’m a self-directed learner, and I’m pretty good at tackling my own “curriculum”. I’m currently working on my UX/UI and coding skills.

I also enjoy mentoring new instructional designers and e-learning developers, and do so through my #100IDs program. I set a goal to mentor 100 Black women entering the L&D space in 5 years. I know, sounds like a big goal, right? But I created scalable mentoring experiences that will help me reach that goal – including a popular virtual happy-hour.

In addition to equitable mentorship, I am a co-founder and learning experience designer at Design for Humanity: a collective pairing experienced creatives with fresh faces to collaborate on real-world projects advocating for equity, diversity, inclusion, and anti-racism.

When I’m not building courses and other learning experiences, I create content around learning and development – including a podcast and YouTube videos.

HPT Video 2020

This video is 24:58 minutes in length.

Guy’s HPT Video Series

The HPT Video Series … formerly known as the HPT Practitioner and HPT Legacy Video Series … was started by Guy W. Wallace in 2008 as a means of sharing the diversity of HPT Practitioners, and the diversity of HPT Practices in the workplace and in academia.

The full set of videos – over 125 – may be found and linked to – here.

HPT – Human Performance Technology – is the application of science – the “technology” part – for Performance Improvement.

As the late Don Tosti noted, “All performance is a human endeavor.”

Whether your label for HPT is that, or Performance Improvement, or Human Performance Improvement, it is all about Evidence Based Practices for Performance Improvement at the Individual level, the Team level, the Process level, the Department level, the Functional level, the Enterprise level, and at the level of Society/World.

HPT Practitioners might operate at any of these levels, as this Video Series clearly demonstrates.

Although ISPI – the International Society for Performance Improvement is the professional home of many HPT Practitioners – the concepts, models, methods, tools and techniques are not limited to any one professional affinity group or professional label.

ISPI just happens to be where I learned about HPT – and has been my professional home since 1979.

This Series Has Evolved Since 2008

These videos were first posted on Google Video, then they were moved to Blink, and now they may all be found on YouTube. And my name for them has changed as well…

HPT Practitioner Video Podcasts and HPT Legacy Video Podcasts

– Practitioner Series – short 2-10 minutes, following a script. Intended to show the diversity of HPT and HPT Practitioners. (2008-2018)

– Legacy Series – longer 15-40+ minutes, also scripted, with added stories of other NSPI/ ISPI’ers from the earlier days of the Society or others who were of great influence. Intended to capture the stories of the people who influenced us. (2008-2018)

– HPT Video Series (2019+) – is a continuation of the first two types of videos in this series, but with less focus on capturing NSPI/ISPI members – and expanding out to any and all who use Evidence Based Practices in Performance Improvement regardless of any affiliation with ISPI or not.
