EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE AND ENGAGING YOUR AUDIENCE IN THE VIRTUAL CLASSROOM

Technology encompassing live video, virtual reality and emoticons has become an integral part of professional training in the virtual classroom. But, without their actual presence can facilitators make a true connection that positively impacts the learning process?

Yes when virtual learning relationships incorporate “emotional intelligence”.

It enables facilitators to understand the feelings of individual and groups and the influence their emotions may have on individual behavior and learning motivation.

Moving beyond technology, this 2-hour workshop includes a breakout session where teams evaluate an activity through emotional intelligence and redesign it with a final action plan of emotionally impactful designs that lead to greater intellectual engagement.

EVALUATING HYBRID & VIRTUAL LEARNING

Most training programs seek to accomplish specific organization goals
such as improving sales and adopting new technology. Once delivered the program
is then evaluated largely on learner feedback…especially positive feedback.
Data is often manipulated to demonstrate successes that may not be completely accurate.

This program focuses on a more refined training measurement through related
virtual and hybrid intervention. It provides more precise and actionable
information about where training is most successful or falling short of goal.

This 2-hour collaborative workshop features a breakout session for teams
to develop a more specific hybrid training evaluation that measures results
at the individual as well as organizational level. A final action plan refines
the evaluation to gather and analyze real data supporting actual
professional development.

HYBRID IS THE NEW BLENDED

Today’s professional training must reflect the reality of today’s workforce.

Work conditions are continuously and often unpredictably changing from day to day.

When not in the office, employees are often working from home or on the road.

audience engagement designed to meet company goals.

This two-hour collaborative workshop includes a scenario-based breakout session.

Teams use a template to design a blended program within the hybrid environment that leads to future success. A Blended Learning Campaign supports the program and includes an eLearning module, infographics and related readings
