Online learning content approaches can diminish the role of the face to face trainer. This is often to the detriment of learner engagement. However, this can be overcome by a strategic switch to establishing the trainer as the facilitator at the centre of the learning process for students.

In this webinar, we'll look at:

  • Case studies where online content provides deeper focus in the classroom for trainers to extend teaching approaches that encourage learners to apply that content to problem solving, collaboration, scenarios, group work and more.
  • Exploration of face to face classroom approaches which incorporate online technology and content with learner engagement at its core.
  • Addressing the question about how educators can refocus their teaching to take advantage of online content while building engagement and deepening learner understanding, application, problem solving and contingency skills.
  • How this represents a staff training opportunity in moving away from traditional blended learning models and established classroom practice.
  • Face to face classroom approaches with learner engagement at its core. We'll examine content types and how these can scaffold into personalised learning in face to face as well as online facilitation (social forums, discussions and virtual classrooms).
  • Detail personal productivity tools trainers can incorporate into student learning.
Learning Outcomes

By the end of this workshop, participants will have the knowledge & skills to:

  • Re-examine the potential of the blended & flipped learning models.
  • Checklist the facilitation skills that make for an active face to face classroom session.
