There are many good uses for Webinars in schools, in a community and with the teacher-apprentice relationship. But how do you know which Webinars are worth watching or listening to? It’s important to get it right because it can set the tone for a good lesson. So how do you know which Webinars will really teach your students something?
What Are Webinars?
In a word, use your judgment! Most teachers have an instinctive way of choosing their Webinars so that they are not making it obvious that they’re doing what’s best for them. Some teachers may even feel obliged to choose the best Webinars for their students.
However, make sure that the particular webinar material is not just a ploy to sell you on a course that you don’t need. Also ensure that it will teach the material correctly. It should also provide examples of real life situations where the material will apply. If it does, then it may be worth listening to and attending.
The Attributes Of Webinars
Also remember that you may have a lot of questions about the topic, so your teacher will certainly want to answer some of them during the webinar. However, it’s better to leave questions for the next lesson so that you don’t lose track of the message.
You will also want to watch the webinars carefully. You might want to check out the schedule and then check to see if there are any breakouts so that you can plan ahead for what’s coming up next.
When you’re watching the presentation, make notes about how you feel about the lesson, the presenter’s manner, how informative the presenter is and how easy it is to understand. Then talk to the presenter afterwards so that you know how well they’ve been doing and what you think the real audience is expecting from the lesson. Make sure you leave them enough time to answer any questions you have. If they can’t do that you might want to consider other options for getting your information.
There are lots of different kinds of Webinars to look at. Look at the content, make notes about it, and then check out the presenter’s method of teaching it. This way you’ll have more confidence in which ones are good sources of education and which ones should be avoided.
There are a lot of other ways of making sure that you have a good experience and you don’t lose sight of the course material. For example, you can look for videos, audio files, slide shows or e-books to download and follow along with online.
The answer to the question “Are webinars good sources of education?” will be a resounding yes, if you plan your lesson well.
