Organizations have adopted the virtual classroom as a way to maximize training opportunities while minimizing costs. After a decade of ineffective sessions, training organizations are looking for instructional design techniques that will create virtual programs that will meet, or even exceed, the results achieved in more traditional settings.
Trending in the virtual classroom design space are two concepts: how to ‘flip the classroom’ to maximize valuable collaboration time, and how to apply the latest thinking with regards to Bloom’s Taxonomy to determine how best to delivery content in this new environment. Another key consideration concerns how blended learning fits into the equation. Do we need to both FLIP and BLEND?
This session will examine both the flipped classroom and Bloom’s Taxonomy and their relationship to the virtual classroom. The application of these concepts will help make your virtual and blended sessions as impactful as possible, while taking advantage of your technology investments by focusing on what content is best delivered through a virtual classroom and other learning technologies, and how flipping the classroom is a natural consequence of good design.
In this session, techniques will be shared which will help you to:
- Determine what content is best delivered in a live, virtual format
- Map learning objectives to the appropriate virtual classroom tools using a modern application of Bloom’s Taxonomy of Learning
- "Flip the classroom" to maximize the collaborative impact of "together time"
