Session Description

Today’s workforce is increasingly mobile and in need of more effective and convenient approaches to transformational training. As such, live, instructor-led virtual training is becoming a critical component of the organizational training strategy. This session will detail virtual training best practices, strategies and specific approaches that focus on increasing the motivation to learn and on more effective engagement of the audience. The use of real-life case studies provides specific examples of how these approaches have been applied in practice and demonstrates how they can be leveraged in the participant’s own environment as appropriate. In addition, participants will be introduced to a model that will help identify which training modalities are best suited to common training requirements in support of an effective continuous learning environment.

Emphasizing practical application of virtual training best practices, this session will equip training decision makers with:

  • The model for live virtual training vs. physical classroom training
  • The critical difference between live and asynchronous virtual training, and how the chosen modality impacts effectiveness
  • The optimal architecture of a total, continuous learning environment
  • The top five traps that inhibit virtual training impact—and how to overcome them
