In just one short week, gain the skills and confidence you need to successfully facilitate synchronous training in your organization.
This dynamic workshop employs a blended approach, combining 5 synchronous sessions with off-line self-paced activities, scheduled from Monday to Friday. You will spend 10+ hours live and online, learning and practicing the key skills and techniques of a virtual trainer. An additional 6 to 8 hours of intersession work will also be required to round out your knowledge and skills.
Maximum Class Size: 12 participants
Pre-requisite: Prior to attending this workshop (if you have not attended it previously), you must complete our 60-minute introductory session, Learning in the Virtual Classroom, to ensure you are comfortable with the tools you will be using in this course.
This workshop is delivered using the Adobe Connect platform. However, the content has been designed to apply to a wide variety of virtual classroom platforms.
Who Should Attend
For trainers who are currently delivering, or expected to deliver, synchronous/virtual classroom training. The workshop is also recommended for instructional designers/developers who want to gain a solid understanding of the unique needs that apply to the virtual classroom. Note: While it isn't mandatory, we do recommend you have fundamental knowledge and experience with instructor-led training techniques.
What You Will Learn
This workshop will show you how to leverage, adapt, and transition your skills and experience as a traditional classroom trainer to the virtual classroom (VC). Throughout the first four sessions you will have the opportunity to use the synchronous tools while practicing the core delivery skills of a virtual trainer. These practice opportunities are designed to progressively build your skills and confidence towards your final 10-minute teaching session during session 5.
Note: Additional after-hours practice opportunities in the virtual classroom will be available for learners to schedule between sessions 1 and 5.
