Roundtable Discussion:

Components of Blended Training 

Join us for an interactive forum to learn about the training modalities for a blended solution. Whether you do one or all, you'll hear real-life examples that will give you insight to implement your own strategy.

Opening Remarks

on Blended Training

presented by: 

Laurie Donnelly

Instructional Designer, Retooling the Workforce

Would you select a colleague’s lunch food? Probably not. Yet we select teaching modalities for learners instead of collaborating with them to identify options. Blended-learnings’ benefits of diversity, flexibility, and budget-friendliness have become well-known. Laurie will help you consider how to convert a garden variety blended-learning model into a blueprint for a customized model that is sure to inspire your creative solutions and empower your learners. 

Virtual Training 

presented by:

Jeff Potocki

Learning Specialist, Marsh McLennan

Were you thrust suddenly into the roles of virtual trainer, administrator, and producer because of COVID? Do you still have questions about designing virtual facilitation, training platforms, and doing more virtually with your LMS? If so, Jeff’s game-style roundtable will help you find answers.

XR Training

presented by:

Monique St. Paul

Instructional Designer, ContinuumXR

Are you still not sure what XR is? That's ok! Virtual and augmented reality don't need to remain a mystery. Come take a closer look into what these technologies are about and how they can help with skills-based and scenario-based training. In a world where social distancing doesn't seem to be going away, XR might be more of a reality for you than you think. Monique's roundtable will get you using the lingo with confidence.
