From Zombies to Engaged ZOOM Learners: How to Have Learning Conversations in Zoom


Many trainers and learning professionals are now rushing to use ZOOM for the rapid transfer of their classroom workshops online. But in the hustle and bustle, we focused too much on the urgency of getting things done instead of getting things done the right way. We are then left with ZOOM sessions with Zombie learners. Yes, we have the content and all the materials, but no learning is taking place.
The webinar will cover these topics: 
  • How to prepare for your ZOOM event to make them highly engaging
  • How to encourage participants to be involved in conversations
  • Why does a lot of ZOOM sessions create Zombie learners
  • What is the 5-step conversion process from classroom to ZOOM
  • How to avoid lecturing and boring participants to death
  • What techniques work in addition to interactions and conversations
  • How to make ZOOM sessions become deep learning experiences

The session will be using ZOOM and its many features to add conversations, engagement, and deep learning.

Pre-WEbinar Requirement: To attend the webinar, you are required to post in the discussion room a small story and deep learning exercise. This is requisite before the webinar.
