The Covid-19 crisis has made teaching in a classroom incredibly challenging and at times unfeasible. Teachers and professional trainers all over the world have had to adapt. They quickly moved to using online meeting tools such as Zoom to keep on doing their job.
Teaching online was no longer an option but a necessity. With this new tool also came new challenges: how do you make your course interesting? How do you keep your audience active? How do you make sure that your participants are actually listening to you?
With Covid-19 once again being a major problem in most countries in Europe, it is quite probable that teaching online is still going to be a necessity well into 2021.
This e-Master Class will look at some of the best practices that can help you improve your performance as an online professional trainer.
Professionals who need to deliver training online
• Choose the correct equipment and set your environment to effectively teach online.
• Learn how to behave in front of a camera during an online session.
• Design an online presentation to capture the attention of your students.
• Involve your students and ensure a high level of participation.
• Calmly handle technical issues and other problems related to teaching online.
In the first part of the course faculty member Frederic Frantz will review all the best practices that can help you improve your online teaching skills.
In the second part of the course, each participant will have to teach a ten minute online session to the rest of the group. This experience will give you the opportunity to test what you have learnt in the course and to receive valuable feedback from your fellow colleagues.
