The Training Industry Conference & Expo (TICE) was held online on April 27-29, Andrew L. Brewer, MS, Instructional Technologist for Northwest Area Health Education Center (NWAHEC), presented Pandemic Pivot: Shift from Classroom to Virtual. Andrew also hosted a roundtable discussion session on the future of online learning and development. 

TICE was attended by training professionals from all over the world. For the first time in the history of this long running program it was available online everywhere due to the COVID-19 pandemic, so the topic of virtual learning was especially timely. 

With the experience of NWAHEC’s shift to online delivery, Andrew was able to use a case study to share the methodologies and lessons learned as NWAHEC tackled the challenges presented by the sudden necessity of virtual learning.

This is a tale of business continuity and how necessity accelerated virtual adoption.
 
We are a seasoned education delivery operation servicing healthcare Continuing Professional Development. Our learners get their licensure requirements met through their participation in our activities.
 
Before the pandemic our activities were over 95% classroom, face to face, and in-person. Now we are 100% virtual.
 
So gather around for my Pandemic Pivot session at TICE 2021 and let me tell you how we adapted to the new landscape for teaching and learning.  
 
Hope to "see" you there!

Almost a year into the pandemic we’ve transitioned most of our teaching and learning into completely virtual activities. By now most of us have participated in some live online activity by connecting with others via technology services such as ZOOM or Webex. For the most part, this modality seems to be delivering effective instruction in an accessible and convenient way, and literally meeting learners where they are via broadband Internet.

I’d like to share what goes into our workflow when we think of our learners through their journey in continuing professional development with Northwest AHEC.

Earlier this week I attended a very informative masterclass on Learner Engagement in live instructor trainings (LIT) given by Training Industry Magazine.
