Effective Ways of Delivering Live Online: Techniques to engage effectively with learners, staff and parents online


Course introduction

This training course is available as in-house training.

Are you looking for ways to:
• bring the best out of your audience by offering them an excellent online training experience?
• promote learning and engagement online?
• facilitate effective and motivating meetings with staff/parents?

The aim of this half day Effective Ways of Delivering Live Online Training course is designed to increase the skills and confidence of teaching/non-teaching staff and group-leaders to engage with participants through the use of interactive online tools. There are lots of practical exercises for participants to learn how to annotate a picture, work in breakout rooms, answer and create a quiz in Mentimeter, hide your desktop icons, answer a quiz in Socrative and create a joint Padlet bulletin board.

This session will look at how to include and devise online games, quizzes and other activities that promote learning and involvement. We will be looking at how learners can collaborate and jointly annotate diagrams, use the whiteboard and get learners to work in smaller groups using the breakout rooms feature. We will also look at how to use mobile phones; to vote in polls, answer online questions, and promote feedback.

The training will be divided into three sections, Preparation, Presentation and Getting Active.

I found that this course gave me a lot of relevant advice about how it improve attendance and promote good relationships between the school and parents.

@nsmtc thank you so much for today's informative course. Feeling ready to get back into school tomorrow and get my attendance high priority and for everyone to understand attendance is everyone's business.

Really good mix of new ideas and making me feel better about what I am already doing. I've been an AO for about four years and this is my first training so thank you, really enjoying it.
