Instructional Techniques for Teleconferencing Program
Instructional Techniques for Teleconferencing
This Instructional Techniques for Teleconferencing program introduces how to deliver workplace learning and instruction by phone or conference call. You will explore new techniques and skills for this delivery methodology.
Delivered in the form of a teleclass, the program models the methods presented in the program. Equivalent to a one-day program, the program includes two 2-hour teleclass sessions dedicated to the discussion of the content and one 2-hour session dedicated to practice presentations and feedback.
During the teleconferencing program each participant will deliver a 10-minute practice lesson and will receive feedback from the instructor and fellow learners. Participants will also do some preparation for the practice lesson outside of the teleclass. The course includes email and telephone access to the instructor.
