Converting Instructor Led Training to Virtual Instructor Led Training

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? Are you interested in learning a comprehensive set of strategic considerations to address as you convert, such as:

  1. Popular virtual platforms and features – what do you need to consider to fulfill agency outcomes;
  2. Agency technology and learner readiness for virtual facilitation and delivery;
  3. Best practices for determining length of virtual training sessions;
  4. What options are available to engage, interact and collaborate with participants using virtual training tools; and
  5. Sharing NIC’s and other correctional agencies experiences in how to mirror face-to-face training processes in virtual instructional design and facilitation?

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).

Part 2:

In the second webinar of this series, participants use the ADDIE road map to guide steps needed to analyze, design, develop, implement and evaluate the instructor led training (ILT) to virtual instructor led training (VILT) conversion process. Best practices for converting from ILT to VILT are detailed including analyzing status of curriculum you are converting to virtual, is it a one to one hour ratio from in person to live virtual delivery hours, virtual digital live and off-live activities, and determining session duration and number of live virtual sessions. The webinar includes three agency conversion stories, focused on the steps to converting from in person to virtual training.

Experiences are shared from
1) Ohio Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation's (ODRC) New Employee Orientation (NEO) training,
2) NIC's Correctional Leadership Development (CLD) training, and
3) NIC's Thinking for a Change (T4C) Facilitator training.

Part 3:

In the third webinar of this series, participants use the ADDIE road map to guide steps needed to design in and add engagements, interactions, and collaboration tools into their virtual instructor led training (VILT) conversion process. The webinar includes defining engagements and interactions that lead to virtual collaboration, and highlights various examples of how to design and add these tools to virtual training design and facilitation. Included in the webinar is demonstration and practice of using a design flow tool for detailing engagements, interactions, and collaborations to meet a performance objective. Sample design flow is shared for a virtual performance objective from NIC's Correctional Leadership Development (CLD) virtual training series.
