Virtual Training Hero Tip #20


Virtual Training Hero Tip #20

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?
