Are you Zoom’ed out? Excited to spend another day in “training” online? It’s time to focus on the person, their time, energy, and interest matter more than the time in their seat.
In this session we will examine ways to maximize time together by “flipping” the content model. The basis of this model is to use time outside of the live, or synchronous, class to introduce new materials ranging from text, videos, and interactive lessons and to use the time in the live class to begin the deeper dive into the content focusing on problem-solving group exercises, small group interactions, and group discussions.
As we work and learn remotely the ability to use time together effectively and efficiently is vital and instead of having your first contact with the content be a lecture via Zoom this model changes the focus to using the time together to interact with the instructor’s and peers to practice, apply, and synthesize the content in the context of their mutual working experience. This session will focus on how the flipped model can be integrated into the learning path an organization uses to develop and train employees.
The session will begin by reviewing the basics of the model and ways developers can utilize existing content to create a meaningful experience before a live Zoom session and examine and discuss 6 techniques to consider using to engage and promote peer learning while meeting the business and performance needs of the individual.
