What is this programme about?


Online learning can be a torturous, unsatisfactory learning experience. This is often because trainers re-use their in-class training material, uploading it onto virtual learning platforms with little change.

As a trainer, you probably plan your learning activities to achieve workshop outcomes. You are likely investing in new technology and technical skills to move your training from in-person to online. An important question is are you also making sure that learning remains engaging and meaningful for participants?

How can you connect with your learners online and engage them in meaningful and impactful learning? You can do this by adapting time-tested facilitation skills to suit the virtual learning environment. Of course, there will also be new sensitivities to tune into, and new tools to use. However, the basics remain unchanged. Impactful learning is about being engaged. Emotion creates motivation to use new learning for real change.

This seven-hour online workshop helps you to understand how to design and deliver online learning experiences that drive human engagement. How can you make full use of the learning platform and its functions to design and deliver engaged learning that has learners connecting with themselves, each other, and the new learning?

This online workshop explores these ideas and more, providing you with the opportunity to experience engaged, impactful learning for yourself so that you too will be able to drive high engagement online learning.


What does it cover?


By the end of this programme, participants will be able to:

  • Differentiate between online webinar and workshop
  • Set up a relaxed and trust-filled learning environment
