Making Virtual Learning Effective
Trainer and peer-to-peer interaction provide a rich experience that ensures participants are fully engaged and supported in developing proficiency.
Here is how we can achieve this in the virtual environment:
Group interaction and collaboration
Working with peers on case studies is a key element of the learning experience.
Participants are allocated to small groups that would meet telecon in the week before a virtual tutorial to:
- Recap the learning from previous session
- Discuss the case study questions
- Raise any questions.
Groups working together over a series of virtual tutorials would also benefit from networking and knowledge sharing.
Interactive virtual tutorials
Tutorials are interactive, encouraging participants to ask questions and share opinions on the case studies.
- Trainers encourage two-way interaction in the session, calling on individuals to contribute to the discussion on case studies.
- A launch session would focus on building rapport and setting expectations for the programme.
- Break out rooms could be used for short group exercises.
- Polling and chat features provide opportunity for frequent engagement.
