Program Details


Chapter Members - please register for the event with your respective chapter.

Ever noticed how physical examinations always start with the doctor or nurse checking your pulse rate, respiration, and temperature? Those vital signs of health are critical to the body working, so we start there. In our developing training world, there are also vital signs of health. Is your content truly participant centered? Do your learners experience the power to choose and a sense of belonging? Does your training still meet the needs of today's learners? When you are Participant Centered, your vitals are healthy...Application and retention improve dramatically!

In this session, we'll:

  • Examine the 4 "vital signs" of participant centered virtual training
  • Experience immediately applicable ideas you can use to put people in charge of their own learning
  • Discuss the biggest threats of "infection" to learner engagement and content retention
  • Acquire new techniques to defeat these threats
  • List means by which to tap into the strengths of digital resources to train the growing population of "digital natives" in our classrooms
  • Select at least one new digital activity to implement in your next training to energize, take surveys, or deliver content
  • Explore 5 advanced PPT tips to transform your slide decks and become a "PPT Ninja"
  • Identify what makes PPT work well or poorly and build your action plan to maximize this tool

Join us for this exciting virtual 2-day session.
