Registration is closed

You are a comfortable facilitator.  You know how to manage a group of learners.  Your course is exciting and engaging with breakout groups, activities, and group discussions.  Now you have been asked to conduct it virtually.... Where do you start?  Do you just take out the parts that don't translate to an online environment?  Maybe add in a poll or 2 to engage learners? 

The virtual learning environment has become a well-established platform because it offers many advantages over traditional, face-to-face training. But it does present challenges for participants, designers, and facilitators alike.  Join us as we learn the tips, tricks, and techniques for adapting a classroom-designed course into an effective, engaging, virtual experience. 

In this session you will learn:

  • Where to begin:  the technology
  • How to design:  what's different about facilitating virtually
  • How to adapt:  what goes, what stays
  • How to engage:  what activities work well virtually (and which don't)

This session is intended for anyone who conducts, or will conduct, virtual learning sessions.  That means YOU!  

Continental Breakfast included
