As we are learning and adjusting to our “new normal” of virtual communication, we wanted to give some encouraging words regarding virtual learning.
Virtual learning provides a certain level of flexibility which helps with helps with time management. An internet connection is the only needed requirement, so you can be at a number of different places as long as you have the desire to learn. Some of the different learning options are tablets, laptops, phones, or even a trusty desktop! This option helps you to choose what location is most beneficial to your own learning experience especially if you are navigating working from home while homeschooling.
Online education does require more self-discipline which will rely on more time-management and self-motivation. This is a trait we can enhance making it a great advantage.
This alternate version of training allows participants to have online interactions, receive online support which includes technical support and dialogue with the presenter(s).Some virtual trainings are shorter so the cost is not as intense. Southern Regional AHEC is going to start offering more trainings online, so this will be an opportunity to meet colleagues throughout the state. Some of these trainings will have a limited number of participants, so participants can have small group work with each other.
As we continue to learn more about the health crisis, please make sure you are taking care of yourself mentally, physically, and emotionally.
