Trainers comfortable with applying a range of training and facilitation techniques in face to face learning presentations and activities are well placed to adapt to facilitation in virtual classrooms for both VET and HE course delivery.
Awareness of the absence of usual cues – body language, posture, eye contact, attitude – requires strategies to monitor, build and sustain engagement – supports that adaption to ensure a mix of knowledge and participative learning experiences.
In this webinar, we’ll explore a range of approaches to facilitating activities including brainstorming, scenarios, student presentations and peer feedback, role play, and utilising guest speakers.
- Have strategies to keep students connected and contributing to activities in a virtual classroom.
- Utilise pre session activities and student presentations to build industry awareness.
- Be able to evaluate the range of facilitation tools available to find the best fit for your cohort and qualification.
- Know effective planning and management techniques to maintain session flow.
- Evaluate pros and cons of virtual classroom and strategies to overcome their limitations.
