Reflecting on Our Online Delivery

5 December 2022
ONLINE via Zoom Meetings


As the end of the year approaches, let's look back on what we've done in the delivery of training online. 

With attrition rates consistently surpassing 20% in tertiary education over the past decade, education providers are looking beyond the gloom to discover what works. What strategies can educators use to engage learners and encourage success? Reflecting on QILT’s Student Engagement Survey, studies show that an increased level of commitment is needed by providers and educators. 

Learn about some easy-to-use strategies that will support students toward active engagement and job-readiness while also assisting your RTO in areas such as:  

  • student support; 

  • teaching quality; 

  • skills development; 

  • learning resources;

  • learner engagement; and

  • the quality of the entire educational experience.

It isn’t just what resources you use, it is how you integrate the resources with collaboration between departments, provision of assistance, planned occasions of knowledge building, group work, emotional resilience-building, and quality teaching.

Participants will be encouraged to contribute before walking away from this 90-minute webinar with:

  • An achievable to-do list  

  • Self-reflection and validation considerations 

  • Free and royalty-free resource development websites 

  • Resources and data for organisational decision-making 

  • Satisfaction when your RTO or HEP student retention statistics improve

Key topics covered in this webinar 

  • Educational evidence of impactful engagement
  • Instructional strategies that have supported learners
  • Development of partnerships within the learning community
  • Collaborative reflections of our online delivery
  • Commitment to our future of online delivery
  • Websites, template ideas, tech advice
