Webinar Design to Promote Quality Engagement: Towards a Transactional Model and Toolkit

Date: Wednesday 1st July (Recording information below)

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.

The PowerPoint slides are available to download and you can see the ‘bad example video’ https://youtu.be/X09GCZ1FZgM – The Webinar Profile Toolkit can be downloaded so you can use it for your next video. Please email a copy back to me to discuss the Transaction Distance Model at abasiel@gmail.com
