Webinar Design to Promote Quality Engagement: Towards a Transactional Model and Toolkit
Interactive video has grown over the last decade to engage learners through a range of instructional designs and supporting technologies. Webinars are now commonplace, but as with early eLearning pedagogy, a ‘talking head’ design falls short of meeting the potential of the media. Next-generation learners need to master virtual collaboration skills to construct solutions to higher-level problem solving using interactive webinars.
How do academics, instructional designers and students design and use webinars to construct new knowledge through social meaning making? The Webinar Profile Toolkit is a methodology and toolkit aimed at providing distance learning stakeholders with the techniques and resources to construct their own effective webinars. First, we look at WHAT are the main features of a webinar? Next, WHAT possible instructional designs and Web Video Hard/Soft Skills are developed. Then, we look at WHY a webinar model linked to Transactional Distance can be a way forward to promote autonomous, creative learners. A software toolkit will be used as part of this ‘hands-on’ workshop to give participants to apply their learning.
This is an action-packed 60-minute workshop that promises to stretch your understanding of how to engage learning through a webinar. Be ready to do some pre-event tasks, collaborate with fellow ‘webinerds’ through Socratic ‘fishbowl discussion. And make smartphone recordings from your own room to share your reflections on the event.
