Planning for Live Sessions


Review & evaluate resources that were developed in 2020!

The worldwide pandemic in 2020 meant a rapid shift to online learning for training providers. For many, this was with little or no training in effective online learning design and delivery. Significant effort was put into creating resources including videos and handouts, that became the lifeline for students at a distance.

In 2021, it is time to move past crisis mode and further build on the enormous efforts of training organization staff. To make the most of the situation, it is time to review and evaluate the resources that were developed in 2020.

An effective online learning program requires a different approach to designing face-to-face classes, with different strategies needed to engage learners and motivate them to login to your classes. For this reason, it is important to understand the fundamentals of online learning, which is exactly what this Bootcamp aims to provide you with!

This Bootcamp session dedicated to live sessions in a virtual classroom or webinar setting, will provide an overview of planning a session that makes use of the tools available in a synchronous virtual classroom setting. Students thrive on social interactions, so this session provides you with the background on how to create these interactions in a live online environment.

Key topics covered:

  • Storyboarding for a live session
  • Ice breakers and introductions
  • Designing interaction for virtual classrooms
    • Polls 
    • Chat 
    • Other tools
  • Designing activities for breakout rooms
  • Applying design principles to slides
  • Considerations of what to avoid
  • Alternatives to slides for presenting information
