Where Do I Start? Using ADDIE as a Roadmap for Conversion, Part 1

This is a three part webinar series. Each webinar builds into the next!

Are you converting your instructor led training (a.k.a. face-to-face or in-person training) to live virtual instructor led training (VILT)? Do you know where to start to convert face-to-face training and materials, such as your facilitator guides, participant guides, slide shows, and other learning experience materials?

What We Will Do in the Webinar Series?

  1. Explore popular virtual platforms, compare and contrast them to your unique agency needs / outcomes for virtual learning.
  2. Assess agency technology infrastructure as well as learner, trainer, and agency readiness for virtual learning.
  3. Survey best practices to determine the duration of virtual learning based upon training outcomes.
  4. Apply options for participant engagement, interaction, and collaboration during virtual learning.
  5. Share experiences from other correctional agencies with respect to in-person to virtual conversions.

Part 1:
In this webinar, participants used the ADDIE framework (Assessment, Design, Development, Implementation and Evaluation) as a virtual roadmap to:

  • Compare and contrast the characteristics of popular virtual training platforms;
  • Assess agency technology infrastructure versus what is needed for effective live virtual training delivery;
  • Assess learner, trainer, and agency readiness for virtual learning; and
  • Determine initial steps for conversion of training from in person (instructor led training / ILT) to virtual instructor led (VILT).
