Design and Technologies 

The purpose of the ATD South Carolina Special Interest Group (SIG) is to provide a community of

collaboration around technology and resources as it relates to learning and development. The SIG is designed to extend ATD South Carolina training and development to professionals across South Carolina with a focus on instructional design and technologies.

The Technology SIG is a resource for all ATD South Carolina members. The SIG provides members with hands-on instructional design training and access to training resources. The SIG also provides an opportunity for members to network and share training tools,
resources and best practices with other working professionals.

This technology SIG is a member benefit to all members of the ATD South Carolina chapter. 

Midlands SIG Strategy

Our strategy is to strengthen awareness of technology tools and resources available by: 

  • Exploring existing and new technology that can be applied to learning environments

  • Building a community of collaboration with members of similar interests

  • Creating an informal learning environment for those who wish to grow in their skill set


  • 6 times annually either in-person or via webinar. Members with the highest attendance will be entered in a drawing to win a prize in December.
  • Each meeting is lead by a collaborative leader.

  • BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) – We strongly encourage you to bring your laptop, tablet or mobile device to actively participate in using the tools we are focusing on. 

  • Skill Level – Sessions are gauged toward skill level. 

  • Registration is required to track activity, interests and resources needed.
