How to Develop and Deliver Effective Webinars
April 22, 2014 / 10:00AM EDT
In today's world, there is constant pressure to deliver information to others in a timely and effective manner. Using traditional instructor led face-to-face discussions or training is increasingly difficult to cost-effectively complete due to travel restrictions, constrained budgets and staff availability.
Synchronous (also known as live) web-based training offers participants the opportunity to deliver information with greater ease. This session will prepare government and contractor managers, supervisors, leaders and trainers to reliably and regularly create and deliver webinars, and therefore, be more effective.
This is an active, participant-focused session that provides participants with valuable skills and tools needed to effectively deliver basic webinars using GoToMeeting software. Although the session will specifically focus on GoToMeeting tools, the methodologies and techniques can be applied using other interactive meeting and training software tools.
What You Will Learn:
- Create objectives, facilitator/instructor guides with scripts and participant guides.
- Develop and use small group games, exercises and activities.
- Apply Universal Learning Principles within the framework of a webinar delivery.
- Apply adult-centric motivational techniques within the framework of a webinar delivery.
- Plan reasonable webinar session schedules (amount and sequencing of content).
- Develop effective test and measurement activities to verify meeting objectives are met.
