Praxis in educational webinars

Webinars are fast becoming a fundamental tool for eLearning during the Coronavirus (Basiel A, Howarth M, 2021). This paper explores some elements of webinar design to weave a tapestry of blended learning solutions.  We look at the technical and pedagogical components of webinar eLearning. First, the instructional design of an online learning process is discussed. What are the pedagogical ingredients for the eLearning ‘Master Chef’ to apply in a live online educational event? Next, a learning word formula is presented to examine the relationship of the interactions between the learning stakeholders and the process to access the online eLearning event content.  Finally, the balance of theory and practice in an eLearning event is offered as a dynamic multimedia tool providing an overview (gestalt) perspective of the 70:20:10 webinar design and its real-world application (Basiel A 2020). The reader is invited to contribute to an on-going virtual discussion and contribute their perspective to help build an online learning community[1].

Summary Discussion:

This paper has offered several ways to represent the content and processes of an online learning event. The blend of theory and practice is illustrated through a chart to position praxis in the webinar design to support the online facilitator. Connecting these examples together is the 70:20:10 learning model, which sees informal learning as the place where most learning takes place.  

Next Generation

Informal learning design can also be a brainstorming session. This may be conducted in a Socratic discussion circle (Basiel A. 2019a).  Instead of rows of students or trainees in a traditional ‘sage-on-the-stage’ seating arrangement, there is a circular design. Experts sit in the inner circle to express their views on the discussion topic or problem to be solved. The audience sits in another circle of seats around them. When there is a question, the audience member and the expert being questioned swap seats. In an immersive webinar a 360* video camera is placed in the centre of the circle of chairs to capture all interactions.
