Is your virtual classroom ready for global learners? According to recent ASTD research, globalization is one of the most important trends affecting the workforce. So how can you make sure your virtual classroom training is appropriate for all learners, regardless of their location? When you prepare for a global audience as a facilitator or designer, you need to think globally about every aspect of the training from the learner perspective, and make adjustments geared to those perspectives. During this session you will explore the five key areas for global virtual classroom success: logistics, content, learning styles, rehearsal, and facilitation. You will leave with strategies and tips to successfully design and deliver training for the global virtual classroom. The speaker has designed and delivered hundreds of training sessions via virtual classroom to World Bank Group staff in every region of the world. She will share practical examples from a variety of courses that were converted for delivery in a global virtual classroom.
