Nuggets for Nonprofits: Tips for Making Online Training Fun from the ATD International Conference
It’s a different world for the delivery of training. Since March many trainers, presenters, and instructional designers have worked tirelessly to migrate in-person training to an online environment. This changed the way we interact with our participants and challenged us to design a relevant and engaging learning experience.
And we are still thinking of ways to enhance our online, synchronous trainings. Fresh from the 2020 ATD International Conference, we’ve collected tips and best practices to help you design and deliver interactive online training. This session will go beyond the chat box and poll feature and bring you strategies for maximizing the learner experience to ensure learning transfer. Some activities will be demonstrated.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND: Trainers, instructional designers, consultants, coaches, and anyone who participates in developing the learning experience for any organization.
