How To Design Engaging Virtual Learning Events with Catie Fitzgerald

Many of us have attended webinars that promise education but instead deliver boredom although the educational information is valid and the presenter has credible expertise. Within minutes of the session starting we decide our time would best be spent doing something else (i.e., reading email, doing research, and/or tackling items on our to-do list).  Why do we do this if the information is sound?
