Many organizations quickly moved in person training to an on-line venue without the usual planning and design. By using design principles, they can retain the effectiveness of their training. Join us for a webinar presented by Dr. Zelphia Brown , who makes clear the definitions and difference between ERT and on-line training,

Introduction to ERT

Remote training continues to be a pervasive topic. COVID-19 forced many organizations to abruptly implement a remote training model with no lead time and almost no preparation.

This temporary shift has created an emergency remote teaching (ERT) situation...instruction that was not originally designed to be delivered online and will return to its original instructional delivery format once the crisis ends has been adapted to be compatible with an online environment.

However, even in a crisis situation, instructional design should not be neglected. The design process impacts the quality of the instruction and increases the probability of achieving desired learning outcomes. Failure to do so could make instructional activities wholly ineffective and lead to critical knowledge and skill gaps within your organization.

Further, to the dismay of professionals who understand the level of planning and design present in online teaching and often absent from emergency remote teaching, the terms are being used interchangeably.

In this webinar, we will discuss:

Why the terms emergency remote teaching and online learning are not interchangeable, the striking differences between them, the necessity of utilizing instructional design, and ways instructional design principles can be used to make the most of your emergency remote teaching experiences.
