Transforming your staff's potential

Friday, June 4, 2010 Tidbits: Backchannel

Here is the periodic sampling from my favorites list. This time I chose the tag "Backchannel."

In training and presentation settings, a backchannel is a tool (or tools) or other established process for supporting real-time conversation (generally now online) alongside live spoken remarks. Backchannels have become commonplace in many industries during conferences, classes and other learning/informational events as a way for the learners to deepen/expand their experience and learning by communicating with those around them.
