How to create Accelerated Learning virtual courses that get great results by putting the learners at the center of the process—just like in face-to-face sessions. 7 Powerful sessions for online training success.
About this event:
Explore key concepts that will help you deliver powerful sessions online and create an interactive learning atmosphere for your participants. It is not just about adding activities to your virtual sessions but about designing engaging learner-driven online sessions that create real impact.
- gain a multitude of virtual training activities,
- discover methods to create interaction,
- adopt design strategies to make your programs learner-centered
While these methods are equally applicable when designing face to face sessions, this Certificate delves into the nuances of designing and delivering virtual training.
What exactly are you going to be doing?
The Certificate is divided into 7 virtual sessions, each 2.5 hours in duration. We will be diving deep into the key foundations of the AL methodology – the AL principles and the 4 Phase AL learning cycle.
Session 1: The 8 AL Guiding Principles – October 20th 2021
Focus on: understanding the foundational pillars of the AL method with each of the 8 principles being “discovered” by you the learners through different activities. This sets the tone for the learner-centered nature of the sessions and begins your introduction to the different AL virtual activities.
Session 2: Mix it Up! Using virtual tools to support AL based learning activities. – October 21st 2021
Focus on: discovering different virtual tools (Mentimeter, Jamboard, Kahoot etc.) as well as typical virtual platform functions and gaining a basic understanding of their functioning in order for you to begin adapting different face to face activities into virtual activities.
Session 3: Designing Activities for the Preparation Phase – October 27th 2021
Focus on: developing the mindset needed to design for the preparation phase of the learning cycle (thinking from the perspective of the learners rather than our own trainers’ perspective). More importantly, collaborating to develop virtual activities which can be used to arouse learner interest.
Session 4: Designing Activities for the Presentation Phase – October 28th 2021
Focus on: developing the mindset needed to design and deliver information which isn’t in a lecture format but through activities. You will work on creating/re-tweaking virtual activities which allow your learners to discover/understand concepts or theories without a lot of “lecturing” from you.
Session 5: Designing Activities for the Practice Phase – November 03rd 2021
Focus on: developing the mindset to design activities and methods for your learners to integrate what they’ve learnt, during the session. The virtual activities that you will design during this session can immediately be applied to your program designs where your learners will practice their skills/behaviors.
Session 6: Designing Activities for the Performance Phase – November 04th 2021
Focus on: developing the mindset to create spaces and exercises for your learners to begin applying what they have learnt during your session. You will be designing virtual activities which support and drive on-the-job application of learning.
Session 7: Learner Celebration and Experience Sharing – November 23rd 2021
Focus on: celebrating your success in completing the AL Certificate journey. This session is driven by all of you and based on your experiences with how you’ve applied the AL methodology in your training design and delivery. We further develop our ties to the AL community.
Timing: 12:00 pm – 2:30 pm ET (for all sessions)
We believe, as our learners, you will take this learning journey seriously. Therefore, as a prerequisite for obtaining the AL Certificate (yes, there’s a certificate and it’s issued by The Center for Accelerated Learning), you will need 75% attendance over the 6 sessions and submit a final assignment after session 6. The assignment will demonstrate your understanding of the AL concepts you have learned and your application of them in your world. We will of course be there every step of the way to support you during this process. Please also note that there is pre and post work for each of the sessions so do budget time for this 🙂
Who is this AL Certificate for?
Anyone who designs learning interventions – trainers/facilitators, instructional designers, subject matter experts, teachers etc.
