It’s one thing to be an effective trainer in a live conference room setting. It’s an entirely different thing to keep learners attentive and engaged when working virtually.

It’s not just learning how the virtual platform works. That’s the easy part. The real issues are (1) getting people to want to focus and participate and (2) communicating well using the technology so that what you say is heard and understood.

In this practical session, we will explore the skills and techniques it takes to facilitate learning effectively in virtual settings, including

  • Getting comfortable in the virtual training environment
  • Engaging learners you can’t see
  • Framing the training with clear expectations and learning objectives so that learners understand why they should participate and how the training applies to the work they do
  • Creating the conditions for a fruitful exchange of ideas
  • Using video productively
  • Delivering visual aids effectively
  • Setting up and debriefing online activities
  • Facilitating fruitful interactions with attendees
  • Incorporating virtual platform tools to advance learning

Dale Ludwig is the Founder and President of Turpin. Over the past 26 years, he and his partners have developed methodologies that challenge much of the conventional wisdom in the field. Working with presenters, facilitators and trainers, Turpin’s work (1) focuses on The Orderly Conversation® that must take place, (2) acknowledges the Default Approach that every presenter and facilitator brings to that process, and (3) helps communicators develop the skills they need to engage listeners in a productive interaction. Dale has a PhD in Communication from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He is a frequent blogger and is the author of the white paper “Getting Past 101,” which can be downloaded at www.turpincommunication.com.

Greg Owen-Boger is the Vice President of Turpin. Schooled in management and the performing arts coupled with an entrepreneurial spirit, Greg brings a diverse set of skills and experiences to the organization. He joined Turpin in 1995 as a cameraman and quickly worked his way up. He now serves as a communication trainer and coach for Turpin’s largest clients. He was the 2015 President of the Chicagoland Chapter of the Association for Talent Development. Like Dale, he is a frequent blogger and makes guest appearances at www.PresentationXpert.com. He is among many thought leaders who contributed to Master Presenter: Lessons from the World’s Top Experts on Becoming a More Influential Speaker.
