Transition to remote training delivery
To make a successful transition there are several factors to take into account:
- Follow a process to transform the content
- Use a checklist to validate the effectiveness and efficiency of the transformation
- Embrace the new way of thinking
- Develop abilities to use digital training technologies
- Modify the activities and adapt the content to the new kind of delivery
- Experiment and refine the content until it reaches the level of quality that you desire while making sure you can employ the method’s structure to deliver it
- Embrace proven practices
The process of modifying the content for remote training
“Any activity that proved its value in a class teaching environment will be modified, adapted, or replaced for usage in the new training delivery medium.”
How to validate content transformation
simplifying the content while fully satisfying the participants’ need for information.
|The target recommended for content reduction is 1-2 hours for a 2-day in-class course.|
The trainer is assumed to be capable to present topics, ideas, messages, and supporting information in a coherent discourse.
the content is redefined visually, for a deeper impact.
|After minimization and visual amplification, trainers could effectively deliver the content of a 2-day in-class course in a 1.5-2-hour webinar.|
Participants who are exclusively introduced to the material of the presentation normally show an understanding of the content that is consistent with the initial intention.
Addition of practical activities
to increase participant’s involvement
Method-specific reusable games and game-like activities have been added to the minimized content.
Delivery and refinement
the content is delivered remotely and is refined based on the participant feedback and in keeping with the observation of the level of engagement and the degree of success in reaching the proposed teaching goals.
Content and delivery forms come in updated versions and thus have results that are superior to the previous versions.
The desired ratio of practical activities
By following these guidelines, you can transform the content of your traditional training session to achieve the desired ratio of practical activities from the total training duration of 65-75% (thus minimizing the lecture time).
