Laying the Groundwork
In an article “3 Ways to Approach Remote Learning” it shows that the global pandemic has caused businesses, schools and families to stop, pivot and rely on technology more than ever, as they make the rapid shift to a more virtual lifestyle. While the global workforce is adapting to this sudden shift to virtual communications and meetings, learning and development lead are re-evaluating their approach to learning and looking at ways to seamlessly bridge remote workers with online learning. With so many possibilities for online learning available, including asynchronous and synchronous training, virtual instruction, virtual training labs, informal learning and virtual meetings, it can be challenging to decide on the best options. To assist you, here are three approaches to consider as you build a virtual learning experience for your team:
- Virtual Instructor-led Training
- Asynchronous Learning
- Learning Platforms
The current situation is an opportunity not only to engage remote workers and continue knowledge-sharing but to lay the groundwork for an exceptional virtual learning experience that will transform the future of work and learning.
Making Remote Training Work
A training industry article shows “3 Tips for Making Remote Training Sessions Work.” In an ideal world, all development training would be face to face, in person.
The trainer would have a clear sense of how the room as a whole and how each individual learner was responding to the content and be able to adjust accordingly. People would feel comfortable stopping the trainer whenever they had a question or a problem.
And the personal bond among participants, arising from everyone being in the same physical location and sharing the same experience, would make it easier for them to discuss, reinforce, master and execute best practices in the period immediately following training. The communication dynamic is fundamentally different from face-to-face training if the trainer is working in one location and the participants are somewhere else. Therefore, the trainer’s engagement strategy should also be different. Here are three approaches that have proven successful in delivering developmental training remotely:
- Before the training, lay the foundation
- During the training, follow through on what you did to prepare participants
- After the training, send the playbook
