    How to Effectively Select, Organize, and Evaluate Webinar Content

    When writing a webinar, many designers have questions about the content. What content do I include? What do I exclude? What webinar format should I use; slides or a web demonstration? How do I organize the content? What learning activities are best given the webinar platform I am using? How do I weave an interactive webinar handout into my presentation? Knowing how to answer these questions is crucial to the success of your webinar.

    Webinar Attendee Will Learn To:
    • Integrate the content components of the Webinar Creation Process
    • Analyze webinar content and streamline it to one core message or intended outcome
    • Recognize different webinar content formats and determine which format is best to use when
    • Identify an effective webinar handout
    • Evaluate if content included in a webinar achieved its intended goal

    Outline
    1. Integrate content components of the Webinar Creation Process
    2. Understand different webinar content formats and determine the best to use when
    3. Recognize the importance of including a well-done webinar handout
    4. Use the webinar content evaluation tool
    5. Live Q&A
    6. Closing Remarks

    • “Backstage” and “onstage” tours of select areas of the hospital.

We will look on as members of the Hospital Education & Workforce Development Team, led by Diana Halfer and Julia Hooper, leaders within the Hospital Education & Workforce Development function, discuss a current project’s progress, challenges and triumphs. This is not just a peek into their world. At times we’ll be asked for help as they weave their way through some problem solving. This session will be fun and beneficial for all.
