As stress mounts from the uncertainty of the times and major shifts are brought about by the coronavirus - trainers, coaches and designers find ourselves in a dilemma. 
We are experts in designing and delivering content; however, more often than not, most eLearning and virtual training are devoid of empathetic experiences. As a result, the learners fail to experience the sincerity, trust and helpfulness of the trainers and designers. As suggested by experts, remote learning and eLearning are very LONELY learning experiences. This is unfortunate because we are unable to motivate learners due to a lack of warmth, a sense of care and empathy. On the other hand, we also have this great opportunity to make our design and delivery highly "caring, empathetic, trusting, respectful and appealing.”  This creates harmonious and reflective learning.
Topics to cover...
  • What is the main source of very impersonal and lonely remote learning and eLearning?
  • What do expert studies suggest about loneliness and what can be done with the problem?
  • What special changes can be implemented in learning design and delivery during the Covid-19 times?
  • What and how can you incorporate design and delivery elements to help learners deal with the stress of demands in new Covid-19 situations, and the accompanying work dislocation, stress and adjustments?
  • How do you learn your own "empathy quotient”? 
  • What are the examples of eLearning and virtual training that shows empathy, care, harmony and productive learning?
