What is an Edchat Interactive event?

Like webinars, Edchat Interactive uses live video.

But with an Edchat Interactive, instead of a long presentation, the event is a live video discussion.

The leader will present a basic concept in the first 5-10 minutes of the event. Then participants will break into small video chat groups to discuss the practicalities of the concept.

After 5-10 minutes of small group discussion, representative of various groups will discuss their findings with the event leader(s) while the entire group watches and listens.

This, more interactive format incorporates social learning and reflection into the learning process, which facilitates deep learning, and greater engagement.

We hope you can find a topic on the left that interests you, and that you get a chance to participate.
