Different learning requirements and neurodiversity amongst your learners demands careful consideration in how you provide virtual training to ensure your learning is as accessible for everyone wherever possible. In the early days of virtual training, getting any form of verbal interaction felt like a win. But how rich can that interaction be?  Using polling, chat box and open questions to the group might get learners involved, but how deep is that learning?

We know that the ‘fight for attention’ in virtual learning environments is continuing to be challenging as learners become more confident and easily distracted in platforms that are really familiar to them like MS Teams and Zoom.

This masterclass looks at how we can use carefully prepared and crafted questions that create conversation and thinking that embeds and transfers learning much further.  We explore how to ask questions and drive discussion that engages learners’ brains from the high levels of learning like understanding and knowledge to deeper levels such as analysis and synchronising. 

Achieve a turbo-boost to your virtual training by developing conversations that deepen and broaden your learners thinking.

Designing for webinars

Webinars are a cost effective and efficient approach for reaching many learners at the same time. Where they lose their impact is when the design and delivery isn’t adapted for a larger audience where participants can easily be distracted to multi-task.
