Fall Webinar Courses – A Peek Behind the Scenes

Over the past few weeks I’ve been busy putting together a live training program on How To Build Your Own Webinars. The live seminar will be offered in Calgary in the fall. Depending on how successful it is, I may offer it in other cities, too. It’s a 12-hour course, offered over four Monday nights. The objective is to have participants develop a webinar that they can then deliver to an audience. I’m super pumped about this and I can’t wait to teach this course!

I’ve had a few people out of town ask me if I do the training program online. So, I’ve started building it. That means planning a curriculum for each online course and integrating those courses into an overall program. I’ve spent my entire career in education and program planning. One of my strengths is that I can clearly envision an entire program and then build it. I also know that to do that well takes time, thought and organization. I take a systematic approach when I build a program. Each piece has to integrate with the other pieces perfectly. The various courses must make sense individually and together, as an integrated program.

Each course must have clear objectives and outcomes. I’ve learned how to strike that elusive balance between making my courses content rich, engaging and not promising too much. I need to know exactly how much material I can cover in a given time — and also include some time for fun and interaction.

Some of the courses I’ve come up with so far for this new online program are:
