10:00 am–3:00 pm EST

The International Accreditors for Continuing Education (IACET) and InSync Training are pleased to announce a strategic partnership to support learning and development professionals, educators, and trainers in ongoing efforts to sharpen their skills, navigate cutting-edge virtual learning tools and leverage methods vital to staying competitive, optimizing learner knowledge, and retaining employees.

Design, facilitate, and support the hybrid virtual learning environment to meet the needs of all learners. Hybrid virtual learning, made so popular during the pandemic, is perhaps the most challenging training environment. Not only do we need to intellectually engage individual learners, but we also need to anticipate and accommodate so many different scenarios!   

The approach to this workshop is scenario-based. Participants will work together to develop a training plan for a hypothetical company (“Bluebird Technologies”) to tackle the intricacies of their global hybrid training requirements. Issues to be addressed in the workshop will include helping individuals learn while in a classroom, office, or at home, variances in instructional experience on a variety of devices, and optimizing design and delivery for a hybrid audience. Hybrid virtual training is complicated - but you’ll help to ensure Bluebird Technologies leaves no learner behind.   

Learning Outcomes

The Hybrid Virtual Training Workshop is focused on providing hands-on, immersive experiences so learning professionals leave with a solid foundation on the topic. At the end of this workshop, you will be able to: 

  • Articulate the importance of hybrid virtual learning in the modern workplace. 
  • Define the elements of a hybrid learning program, including the impact of mobile, global, and virtual learning environments. 
  • Incorporate learning technologies (video, breakout rooms, whiteboards, 3rd party integrations) that are accessible and effective for all environments. 
  • Include activity design options that are effective for a hybrid learning audience. 
  • Re-imagine the role of the producer as the learner advocate for all participants, no matter how they are participating.  
  • Facilitate in a way that maximizes engagement and psychological safety of all learners. 
  • Adapt activities ‘in the moment’ to accommodate the actual audience composition.  
  • Blend self-directed and ‘remote group’ learning activities into the program to connect learners in between live session.
