When it comes to learners' experience, recreating the personal in a virtual world is now a global challenge. How should a training session look in the post-lockdown era? And, more importantly, how feasible is to ease the transition and provide more learner-centered experiences? Jack Quantrill and Stefan Eger from Learning Pool have the answers. Join them in this session and stay updated! The event is sponsored by eLearning Industry.

Face-To-Face In A Virtual World

Recreating the personal in a virtual world is now a global challenge, and in a post-lockdown environment there’s now more room for reflection - to pause and think about what good could and does look like.

While the COVID crisis has brought many new remote learning possibilities to the forefront, true human connection has taken a backseat. Learners often feel emotionally distanced from peers and miss the comradery as they move into the New Normal. Fortunately, you can personalize the process and bring your teams together without the risk. But how do you overcome the negative preconceptions that some employees have about virtual training? Is there a way to ease the transition and provide more learner-centered experiences?

Join us to discover how you can transform your on-site training to meaningful and memorable virtual training sessions that break the L&D mold.

In this session, we'll discuss:

  • Going beyond conversions
  • Reflections on post-lockdown training
  • Recreating the personal in a virtual environment
  • Unpicking the tensions between expectations and reality
  • Quick wins and key takeaways
