    Experiential Virtual Learning That Sticks!

    Join the Organization Development Network of Chicago for our annual meeting plus a new tool for your virtual toolbelt!

    It’s July – time for the ODN/C annual meeting! Plus, we have Diane Kubal joining us to present, “Experiential Virtual Learning that Sticks: Keeping Learners Engaged & Motivated in Uncertain Times.”


    We’ll spend the first portion of our meeting reviewing our accomplishments over the past year, along with sharing the exciting plans we have for the future. We’ll also be asking for your real-time feedback (confidentially) in a few polls to help us check the pulse of our network to make sure we’re heading in the right direction.


    With in-person training at a halt, you are likely wondering how you can convert your classroom training into virtual learning experiences. Organizations must now level-up and offer new and creative ways to engage, train and develop their workforce virtually; a workforce of modern learners that demand personalized learning that is interesting, accessible, and available anywhere, on any device.

    Isn’t this just converting existing training into webinars?

    No! Experiential virtual learning is different because it doesn’t just deliver knowledge through lecture, videos and written content.  Learners are required to take action by experimenting and applying what they have learned. It’s more effective because it helps establish lasting behavior change. When used in combination with a variety of methods such as gamification and micro-learning, learners stay engaged and motivated. And experiential virtual learning can be applied to all kinds of content and works especially well for “soft skills” training.

    Join this session to see a state-of-the art experiential virtual learning approach and how it can be implemented with or without a technology platform!

    In this enlightening and interactive session, attendees will:

    • define what experiential virtual learning is
    • review design methods used in experiential virtual learning
    • see a live experiential virtual program on a learning experience platform
    • practice converting classroom content into virtual experiential learning
