00690 Complexity of Spa Leadership: Why Managing a Spa Takes a Unique Set of Skills
Tuesday, August 5, 2014
11:00AM - 12:00PM 
uci.webex.com

Designing the unforgettable spa experience involves a plethora of moving pieces. The relaxing environment, the soothing ambience and decor, the refreshments, the plush linens, the soft music, the effective products, the welcoming spa receptionists, and the dedicated spa therapists all need to come together impeccably to create a memorable spa experience. These are just some of the readily observable aspects of the spa and are generally known as the “front of house.” A spa leader, at any level of management, needs to be aware of all these moving parts to ensure the guest experience is a seamless journey, which involves strong customer service and leadership skills. But, being a spa leader is much more than being good with guests and being well-respected by the team. Spa leaders need to be effective in the “back of house” as well, and carefully orchestrate everything that happens behind the scenes. Organization, time management, and analytical skills are just some of the skills required. This webinar will cover the complex skills a spa leader needs to have to ensure a seamless experience both in the “front of house” and the “back of house” with Sonee Singh, spa entrepreneur previously with Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group and Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa. This webinar will include pre-registration advisement for individuals interested in UC Irvine Extension’s Spa and Hospitality Management Certificate Program.

00896 Getting Serious about eLearning
Tuesday, September 9, 2014
11:00AM - 12:00PM 
uci.webex.com

While the need for elearning is now more than ever, the examples we see continue to violate what we know about how we learn. What we see is unengaging content dump and rote knowledge test, when what we need is meaningful practice. It seemed time to call this out. Clark Quinn, Executive Director for Quinnovation, joined by his fellow instigators Michael Allen, Julie Dirksen, & Will Thalheimer couldn’t continue to watch this and decided to do something. The result is the Serious eLearning Manifesto (http://elearningmanifesto.org/), a call to arms to combat the horde of bad elearning. Expressing eight core values underpinned by 22 research-based principles, the Manifesto is a guide to learning that works. Please join UC Irvine Extension and Dr. Quinn in a presentation on the Manifesto, and then engage in a lively discussion about what’s needed and why. This webinar will include pre-registration advisement for individuals interested in UC Irvine Extension's fully online E-Learning Instructional Design Certificate Program.
