3.15pm: Successfully facilitating live mixed learning

Diana L. Howles, Howles Associates

As a result of the pandemic, most organizations pivoted from traditional in-person training to fully virtual training programs for employees.

As staff have returned to the workplace, a live mix of both in-person and virtual learners together has risen in popularity by necessity. Hybrid learning is the live mix of both on-site and online learners sharing a concurrent learning space. Training practitioners may have limited experience and will benefit from learning how to do it well.

Come learn strategies that are experience and evidence based. Attendees will be equipped to apply these strategies to support meaningful and impactful live mixed learning programs.
