Moving your in-person conferences and courses to an online platform was like putting on a new pair of prescription glasses. What was once blurry in the background suddenly came into focus. When replicated online, your conference sessions and courses resembled the average webinar—a passive learning experience that prompted attendees to multitask since they didn’t have any opportunities to engage with fellow learners or apply new information.
Virtual conferences and courses might have received a passing grade last year because people were eager to get out of their pandemic routine—plus they needed the credits and associations needed the revenue. But you can provide a more effective and enjoyable learning experience if your instructors understand and apply the principles of adult learning. A train-the-trainer program will help you improve the quality and impact of online and in-person instruction.
