Again in 2007 or 2008 I watched knowledgeable growth webinar for the primary time. I can not keep in mind precisely what the webinar was about (it was one thing about Second Life), however I do keep in mind considering that I did not get “it.” After that I watched bunch of free webinars about every kind of issues as a result of that is what I assumed I ought to do to be a contemporary instructor staying present in his apply. Lastly, in late 2011 I paid to affix a webinar and one thing bizarre occurred, I obtained much more out of the expertise. Since then nearly each webinar I’ve attended, each free and paid, has been a great studying expertise. Here is what I found out about studying from webinars.
1. Take part in reside webinars, do not simply watch them.
Each webinar platform has some form of chat or Q&A characteristic. Use it! Use it to ask the presenter questions. An skilled webinar presenter will be capable of deal with questions in real-time. Do not be afraid to ask clarifying questions. Even once I’m attending webinars about issues with which I am already acquainted, I make an effort to think about inquiries to ask. This forces me to tune-in and pay attention with extra focus than if I used to be simply listening within the hopes that one thing stated by the presenter will bounce out at me.
2. Shut Fb and take notes.
If I can not attend the reside model of a webinar, I nonetheless discover nice worth in recorded webinars. Once I watch recorded webinar I deal with it the identical manner I might throughout a reside session. Meaning closing Fb and taking notes in my pocket book. In that pocket book I write the questions that I wish to ship to the presenter through e mail.
three. Act on webinar concepts rapidly.
Once I take part in a webinar my participation isn’t over till I truly act on what I used to be simply taught. Identical to in a standard classroom setting, it’s essential to strive for your self what was simply demonstrated for you. Do that as rapidly as you may.
