Virtual Training Online Conference 2021 - August 5, 2021

Melissa Grey Satterfield

Director & Master Trainer

Have you created virtual classroom training that is interactive, yet the participants still don’t seem engaged? Interactivity does not automatically lead to engagement. Finding new, innovative ways to combine virtual platform tools with instructional activities can be challenging! What if there was a way to combine active and passive tools to engage your learners both physically and cognitively in the virtual classroom?

This session will show you how to effectively combine active virtual platform tools (like chat and polls) with passive tools (like content sharing and video streaming) to encourage simultaneous interaction from your learners. You’ll also learn when to strategically add the occasional splash of consecutive interaction to balance the blend of both physical and cognitive engagement. You’ll leave this session with a menu of tips, tricks, and creative “mixes” that will quench your learners’ thirst for engaging, interactive virtual learning experiences.
