PORTFOLIO: Sexual Harassment & Child Abuse Prevention


My Solution: I organized the information into manageable sections and created a series of visually stimulating presentations and interactive images followed by discussion activities and knowledge checks. The format works well with both in-person and online environments.

In order to track learners and their progress through the training, the online version is housed in a learning management system. This particular LMS features a clean and simple interface, which lends itself to learners who have little experience in online learning. 

Project Background

The Challenge: In order to comply with national mandates. the client, a church, needed to train all staff and volunteers how to recognize and prevent sexual harassment and child abuse and neglect.  The existing training was out-of-date, unorganized, and 100% text-based. The large amount of information had to be organized and presented in a manner that optimized learner understanding and retention. The online version of the training needed to be accessible to learners with varying levels of computer skill.



Why This Training Works

  • Information is presented in easy-to-process chunks.
  • Interactive elements such as the Thinklink image (right) keep the learner engaged. Interactivity also gives learners a measure of control over the information.
  • Discussion areas help learners process information by sharing their own insights and stories, which is important when dealing with sensitive or unsettling material.
  • The LMS allowed supervisors to easily monitor training participation.
