Presented by: Brad Paleg, Distance Learning Specialist, University of Maryland Extension
Webinars can provide a dynamic and engaging way to convey information to a geographically dispersed audience. Depending on your goals, a well designed, developed and implemented webinar can yield meaningful outcomes for participants. However, we've all experienced webinars where obstacles and challenges did not allow for successful learning and engagement. And, recent estimates suggest that the "no-show rate" of webinars is 40%. The presenter will highlight the characteristics of successful webinars, identify obstacles to engaging experiences, and discuss and explore strategies, resources, and techniques to both reduce obstacles and to increase attendance, participation and learning. Participants are encouraged to share their experiences, questions, and ideas related to delivering successful webinars.
This webinar is sponsored and hosted by the National Association of Extension Program and Staff Development Professionals (NAEPSDP). For more information on NAEPSDP, visit http://naepsdp.tamu.edu/
