Video Killed the Radio Star: Improving VILT for Your Stakeholders

If over 50% of all human interaction is nonverbal, what are the implications for teaching and training online? Many instructors complain that virtual instructor-led training (VILT) sessions are rarely as effective as in-person delivery, but don't understand the core reasons why. This session will explain how to transform the virtual experience so that it exceeds in-person instruction for both trainers and learners. Learn how new techniques and technology are finally making it possible to train online with no loss of nonverbal communication to restore integrity to your VILT sessions. You'll see and hear from instructors in the field who have experienced the difference for themselves and see clips from classroom interactions.Come with an open mind and leave inspired!

putting “face-to-face” back into your virtual online training – seeing is believing

We've all heard the over-quoted statistics that 55% of all human interaction is non-verbal but what are the real implications of this information for training online?
Anthropology can explain so much about why your VILT sessions are rarely as effective as in-person delivery and once you understand why, you'll experience one of those “Aha!” moments that makes it all clear.

More importantly, you'll learn what's needed to transform your training so that “online” can become superior to “in-person”. If you currently use any sort of Virtual Classroom platform then this session will be invaluable to understand why, despite the promises, your current classes are often a poor imitation of the live, in-person experience. And for those who believe that “virtual” classes can never compete with “face-to-face” instruction, be prepared to change your mind. Seeing really is believing!
