Virtual Learning Games to Stimulate Engagement

About This Event

Come join us for this session on exploring virtual learning games to help energize your trainees, keep engagement levels high, and allow participants to make decisions.

In a virtual environment, it’s easy to start a session in which no one knows each other. This can create a tense environment, and you ask yourself whether or not you should spend time starting off by getting to know one another or go straight to presenting the learning material despite the time you have? And when training virtually have you felt like you have “lost” your trainees during a session? How can you bring them back and stay engaged?

Rosemary Okoiti, VP of Talent Management of ATD NYC Chapter and Juliet Hart, Past President of ATD Mid NJ Chapter, will facilitate virtual exercises that they checked out to help trainers who are new to the virtual training space or those looking for new ideas.  ALSO, Karl Kapp will guide us through an exercise and show us a sneak peek of the next level of engagement! 

Registrants will participate in various virtual activities which provide you with resources, tools and actionable ideas that you can implement immediately.

And come with your suggestions also - we would love to hear them!

Juliet C. Hart specializes in developing the leadership capabilities of scientists and their organizations.  She is the principal and founder of Hart & Chin, a company that offers workshops, coaching, and consulting services.

She believes that strengthening the leadership skills of scientists and developing their cultural awareness will make them more effective leaders, who will have a larger impact and create greater value for the organizations they serve.

Previously working as a scientist and with scientists at Johnson & Johnson, she has seen the impact of her work drive employee engagement, increase collaboration, and stimulate innovation across functions.

Juliet established her expertise in learning and development through progressive roles within pharmaceutical giants such as J&J and Bristol-Myers Squibb.  In addition, she has obtained management training from the Yale School of Management. She began her journey in drug discovery as a laboratory scientist at small to mid-sized biotech companies and at J&J in San Diego, CA.  Juliet earned her Bachelor’s degree from the City University of New York - Hunter College in psychology.  There she conducted research in biopsychology as a National Institutes of Health - Scholar Fellow, published papers, contributed to the National Academy of Sciences, and presented at international conferences.
