You may have heard of the Flipped Classroom:
A flipped classroom is an instructional strategy and a type of blended learning, which aims to increase student engagement and learning by having students complete readings at their home and work on live problem-solving during class time.
Let’s Flip the Webinar as well:
- Record your content and share it with your audience in advance.
- Nudge them to post questions ahead of time as well. Ideally, everyone can comment too, starting the conversation even before the webinar.
- The webinar is a Q&A live stream focusing on answering all questions!
Couple of advantages:
- You can really nail your message, demos, customer testimonials, … when recording the main content ahead of time. You can enhance that video with additional information or highlights too!
- No more running out of time:
“Oh, we are sorry, but we only have time for one question.”
- Only the people that are really interested in the conversation will be present, which leads to a high signal conversation.
Amy Jo Kim in her GameThinkingHub is doing precisely that with tomorrow’s: Q&A Livestream The Power of Incentives with Barry O’Reilly (signup required)
I checked out Amy Jo’s video interview with Barry O’Reilly this afternoon at my own time and speed. Now I am ready for the discussion tomorrow.
Amy Jo was able to enhance the interview recording with pictures of Barry’s books:
I may not be able to make this Q&A live stream tomorrow Jan 26th 10am PST, as the Rise with SAP event is at the same time :-(. But I was able to post my question, and as the session will also be recorded, I can jump in later and listen to the answer and discussion around it.
Very cool! Another great step away from the death by Zoom Webinars :-)
