Manitoba: Creating High-Impact Virtual Learning Experiences
*SOLD OUT* Imagine if you could deliver virtual learning in a way that was so valuable and engaging that your participants prefer it to going to a classroom and listening to an instructor. This session will show you how to create a rich, robust, collaborative virtual classroom environment that delivers a compelling learning opportunity. In this interactive one-day workshop, you will learn engagement techniques that build collaborative learning, innovative uses of the chat, polling, and annotation functions, and how to maintain attention and interest in the virtual classroom. Experience great virtual learning first hand, as Cynthia Clay, author of Great Webinars: How to Create Interactive Learning that is Captivating, Informative and Fun, models webinar delivery while you’re logged into a webinar in the face-to-face classroom.


As per the original event web page, here is the information below in case needed. Note: - All participants are required to bring a laptop. - Bring a short segment of a course that you’d like to “re-purpose” for the virtual classroom based on the techniques presented.
