Lunch & Learn: A Practical Approach to Creating Guidebooks for ILT & VILT Instruction

  • 16 Mar 2023
  • 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
  • Zoom


Registration is closed

ILT & VILT training encompasses 60-70% of all training developed and delivered. However, most training programs struggle to ensure a consistent experience for the participants, the facilitators, and the content developers.

A well-crafted guidebook helps ensure consistency in delivering material across multiple trainers and locations and ensures that your training program is an asset of your organization.

In this session, we will take a practical look at items you can implement to create a phenomenal guidebook: 

1.      Participants will be able to describe the dual roles that guidebooks play for the facilitator & participant. 

2.      Attendees will be able to replicate the structure to create guidebooks that ensure consistency across multiple trainers, locations, and sessions.

3.      Participants will learn to organize their course for effective VILT programs regardless of the virtual delivery platform (Zoom, Teams, WebEx, etc.)

Follow-up Workshop:

Want to try it out and get feedback on your guidebook?  Join us on 4/6 from 12:00-1:00 for a Guidebook Workshop.  You can share your work, see the work of others, and get real time feedback and consulting from Pat!
