Empowering learners to take centre stage in the virtual classroom

How engaged are your learners during your live virtual classes? Live sessions in virtual classrooms can be one-dimensional and teacher-centred, with groups of passive learners listening to a ‘sage on the stage’ talking head. We listened to the experience of our trainers and learners, and have identified ways to enable the learner to be at the centre of the learning experience. We’ll share techniques for overcoming some pitfalls of the virtual classroom for both content and teaching.

What will you get out of this session?
Whether you’re a teacher, content developer or course designer, this session will help you reflect on your own use of live virtual classrooms. We’ll discuss how they can boost the learning experience you’re offering, and you’ll come away with some practical tips and tools for engaging and inspiring your learners.
