Effortless Effortless Virtual Facilitation

Organizational change stems more from environmental impact than from any other factor" (Burke, 1994a). Today external environment is driving a transformational change. Technology is the savior when life expectancy has come to depend on minimizing human contact.

Most of us have experienced virtual learning sessions as a monologue with a bunch of slides, a presenter talking through them and participants at best asking a few questions on the chat. Precisely the reason why most people believe virtual sessions can't be as effective as in-class sessions. What if there was a way to make those sessions more engaging by using a plethora of features the tech- platforms provide which we haven't yet explored? Break-outs, annotation, polls, videos, external tools of engagement-Mentimeter, Kahoot, Mural, we have barely scratched the surface of the virtual facilitation universe. There are a host of opportunities to leave your virtual session participants spellbound with these extensive tools of engagement.

Tech-enabled learning is the future. We used virtual learning earlier but mostly for awareness building, low-touch and educational topics. Areas of learning where we chose in-person over virtual learning would now also have to be delivered through virtual but impactful experiences.

How do we then create these immersive experiences for our learners which have an impact similar to a classroom session?

In this program:

  • Learn practical ways to enable impactful learning on Virtual Platforms based on robust theoretical frameworks
  • Get hands-on learning on designing and facilitating in virtual classrooms
  • Examine various popular platforms of collaboration - Microsoft Teams, Adobe Connect and WebEx Training
  • Explore how to design virtual learning journeys across different platforms with the support of 'app-tivities' (leveraging smartphones and learning apps)
  • Learn how to create engaging and immersive content on a virtual platform using external tools like Mentimeter, QR, Kahoot, Mural
  • Learn to replicate the impact of a classroom program on a virtual platform
  • Use polls, chats, videos, word cloud, break-outs to enhance virtual class experience and increase participant interactivity
  • Experience and get inputs on replicating in-class facilitation methods such as world café, fish-bowl, sociometry, brain-storming in a virtual class
  • Discuss how to evaluate effectiveness of virtual learning 

Who should attend - Anyone seeking to design and deliver engaging and impactful learning on virtual platforms
