Begin with ACTIVE Participation
Let’s lose the music hold, hidden attendee lists, and mute upon entry for our live virtual training sessions. We wouldn’t do such things in an in-person training session, so why do them online?
Teach everyone how to properly connect and participate, and then facilitate active learning rather than passive lectures.
Do the same types of things you would do in an in-person training session. Examples may include:
- Greet people as soon as they join
- Use their names
- Ask them to unmute and say hello
- Wave on camera
- Participate in a warmup activity
- Start on time
What other ideas do you have to create an ACTIVE start to your virtual training sessions?
