Training in the Virtual Environment
Transferring in-person skills to the online environment
It’s one thing to be an effective trainer in a live conference room setting. It’s an entirely different thing to keep learners attentive and engaged when working virtually.
It’s not just learning how the virtual platform works. That’s the easy part. The real issues are (1) getting people to want to focus and participate and (2) communicating well using the technology so that what you say is heard and understood.
In this practical session, we will explore the skills and techniques it takes to facilitate learning effectively in virtual settings, including
Getting comfortable in the virtual training environment
Engaging learners you can’t see
Framing the training with clear expectations and learning objectives so that learners understand why they should participate and how the training applies to the work they do
Creating the conditions for a fruitful exchange of ideas
Using video productively
Delivering visual aids effectively
Facilitating fruitful interactions with attendees
Incorporating virtual platform tools to advance learning
Leaning on a host (producer or moderator) to manage technology on the back end
