ATD Dallas Technology SIG
Deliver Webinars that Energize Participants
Wednesday, September 13th, 2017 @ 12pm
Facilitator: Brian French
Too many webinars are just plain boring, where the participant passively sits back and either multitasks, only halfway listens, or even falls asleep (yes, it happens). Discover how to develop and deliver webinars that fully engage participants through discussion, activities, and exercises that invite active participation. In this classroom-based session you will participate in a simulated virtual environment and learn how to sequence webinars to keep the pace flowing and create interactivity to maintain attention. Come find your groove and learn how to rock on!
Objectives: At the end of the session, the participants should be able to…
- Detail techniques for increasing interactivity within webinar-based delivery.
- Explain how to sequence the content for shortened attention spans.
- Describe tips on how to personalize the experience for the learner.
- Articulate the benefits of using live video of the instructor.
