Reflections by Silvia Pochettino (article published on Linkedin) on how a good online course and a competent teacher are fundamental pillars of an effective training path.
Each of us, whatever his experiences, his studies, his professional paths, has met in a path of classroom training at least two types of teachers who - without prejudice to the quality of the contents transmitted - embody these two extreme characters:
These two extreme teacher prototypes are the ones we can have the chance to meet every day in the training in class. And meeting one or the other - even with the same content transmitted - can have a decisive influence on the level of attention, involvement and therefore real learning of the subject on which we are training.
When we talk about online courses, we often think of a more standardized tool, essentially based on the transmission of mere contents, and therefore less influenced by the style of display of the material.
It is not so. Specularly to the two types of teacher described above, there are two types of online courses that promptly reproduce their characteristics:
In the training offer there are still too many Beta Teachers in the classroom, and in addition, many anonymous online Beta courses have been added "screen recordings " which have the only advantage of costing little or nothing, but add nothing to the training course of those who have the misfortune of having to experience them on their own skin.
Digital training is often chosen by those who want to save money, but this is a colossal strategic mistake.
The right choice for engaging and effective training
A good e-learning course, when it exploits all the new technologies and is developed in an original and innovative way, easily manages to capture the attention of the learner, to stimulate their creativity and imagination, and above all to maintain their interest throughout. the course.
The choice instead of the teacher in a project of classroom training it is one of the fundamental variables to be kept under control, and sometimes you prefer to activate a more expensive course in order to have a certain Alfa teacher in the classroom.
So you need to think about other price standards, because you rightly pay for quality.
Learning must be a pleasure, and this result can only be achieved with strictly Alfa courses and teachers.
