Advanced experiential learning to equip you to facilitate truly engaging virtual training courses
Take your virtual training skills to the next level as you explore for yourself a wide range of advanced facilitation techniques, and create your own best-practice training formats.
As the world gets used to the "new normal" of the COVID-19 workplace, most training companies have made the switch from face-to-face training, to virtual. After hastily converting traditional courses to virtual format, a big question still remains for many trainers: how do I make my training as engaging online as I did in a physical training room?
And this is where Advanced Facilitation Techniques for Virtual Training comes to the rescue - an advanced workshop to help trainers in all subjects to take their facilitation skills up a gear, with innovative and engaging facilitation ideas to liven up a virtual training course, engage learners fully in the experience, and stand out from the competition,
In this three-hour virtual knowledge bite, you’ll consider your own training audience, explore and experience a wide range of advanced facilitation techniques for the virtual world, and leave with practical actions to use straight away in the virtual training room.
Neil definitely brought the human element to the course. The way the course was structured and the techniques were used made the conversations with other participants engaging and natural.
