Recently, our experts Anna Kuehl and Abhijit Navale hosted a webinar on Transforming Classroom Training: Best Practices and Examples, where they spoke about transitioning classroom training to virtual platforms and demonstrated examples of transformations.
In these challenging times, every organization is working towards building a sustainable model to ensure that access to knowledge is not curtailed. They want to ensure prolonged learning support towards their remote students, employees, partners, and customers. A systematic approach to the transformation of learning can be achieved when you follow some methods like:
Learning & Business Objectives, Target Audience, Level of bloom’s taxonomy, what do you want to teach Stays the Same
Aspects like Ice-Breakers, Flip-Charts, Hands-on Activities, Group discussions need Minor Tweaks to enable online delivery such as whiteboard, breakout rooms in virtual learning methods.
Online or virtual learning does have constraints, so if the training requires hands-on time on a physical piece of equipment then such kind of training requires a New Approach and alternative digital learning methods for delivery.
Classroom as a delivery channel cannot be simply replicated online, as there are limitations, but if carefully thought through you can build a complete learning ecosystem using different learning modalities to drive what can result in an enhanced training experience. So a key takeaway here is to transform the “Classroom Experience,” not just the “materials.”
Here is a summary of what you should consider when going through a transformation phase:
Run post-training surveys and implement their feedback to enhance the learning experience.
