Blended learning combines face-to-face instruction and computer-mediated training in an integrated instructional approach. The multi-faceted learning style augments instruction powerfully, as the more versatile the method, the greater the effectiveness.
> Webinars & eLearning
Our eLearning training modules, like all training programs developed by The Negotiation Institute, are customized specifically to the needs expressed by the client. We use the organization’s unique negotiation deficiencies as working material to create case studies addressing issues anticipated in upcoming negotiations.
We use these case studies to develop eLearning modules that trainees can access anywhere, from any device with an internet connection. We are able to add interactive elements to the modules, such as exercises, live chats, message boards, and games involving all users.
The Negotiation Institute utilizes the creative talents of experienced media professionals to ensure that the supplemental elements of the program are dynamic and relevant. Our production and creative teams will assemble audio clips, video segments, and strong visuals that are customized for each program.
- eLearning is a cost-efficient solution for training global or multinational clients with very large groups of trainees, as well as for clients who wish to train entire departments on the general concepts of negotiation.
- Getting everyone together in one place for a certain period of time can be difficult. Through eLearning, we’re able to separate 2-, 3-, and 5-day live seminars into 1- to 3-day eLearning modules that deliver fundamental concepts, followed by one day of on-site, instructor-led exercises and discussion
Webinars (web+seminars) are an effective training solution for groups that cannot physically meet in one location to participate in a seminar. Utilizing the most powerful, easy-to-navigate webinar software (plus a webcam and microphone), the instructor–along with five participants–interact live in an intimate, yet not intimidating, learning environment. Audio, video and dynamic visual aids supplement and enhance the webinar.
During the Webinar, the instructor can pass control over to any participant, which keeps their focus and encourages participation. There are also polling and whiteboard options that enable feedback while the instructor is presenting. Our production and creative teams assemble audio clips, video segments, and strong visuals that are customized for each webinar.
- A 12-hour program given to 5 people at a time, broken down into 1-2 hour sessions, ensuring that participants are fresh, focused, and actively engaged. The entire program is generally given over the course of a week, and modified depending on the requirements of the participants. This enables participants to utilize what they have learned in their daily negotiations, and obtain actionable insights that can be shared with the instructor and group during a following session.
- At the conclusion of the program, participants have the option to come back after a period of time and share their negotiation experiences with the instructor and group, having applied the concepts they’ve learned.
- Role-playing exercises utilize the Webinar format to enable participants to break off into teams, plan strategies, and actively negotiate.
Webinars are also an excellent way to provide participants with direct access to the instructor post-seminar. These follow-up sessions via webinar reinforce key concepts and provide a forum for questions & answers, an opportunity to build upon skills and most importantly fosters discussions about how training has impacted their negotiations day-to-day.
Why a Webinar?
- A logistics solution for international clients, clients in remote or difficult locations, and/or colleagues with conflicting or irregular work schedules
- The planning and traveling involved when gathering a group for seminar can be time-intensive and inefficient, particularly for busy individuals whose time is of the utmost value. Webinars gather a group instantly, eliminating the need for participants to even leave their desk. Participants can stop and resume their work effortlessly, without taking a whole day off due to travel or loss of momentum.
- In our globalized society, organizations are using web conferencing technology to conduct meetings, review documents and deal with clients. This technology can be awkward or intimidating for some, and even a great negotiator can falter when required to interact in this way. Learning and practicing negotiation skills via webinar is an eminently practical way to prepare your team to negotiate in a video conference environment.
