Here at Legal Light Bulbs, we have extensive experience in teaching and education, both in-person and in e-Learning education online.
People we speak with often ask us whether online education modules (e-Learning courses) are as effective as in-class seminars and tutorials such as those employed in traditional learning environments like universities. Of course, these days a lot of universities are also making this transition.
As we now discuss, there are a number of ways online learning is as or even more effective than face-to-face. First, in this modern Information Technology-based society we now find ourselves in, much of our lives is spent cybernetically connected to our smartphones, tablet, laptop, and desktop computers.
In our pockets (or hand bags) we hold a tool providing us with a massive repository of information accumulated by human society. What better way to teach and inform than via the medium the majority of people already use to communicate and learn from one another?
Secondly, there are a variety of ways people learn. Some read; listen; watch; or focus intently for lengthy periods, whilst others work best with brief bytes. Here at Legal Light Bulbs, our online modules allow for these differences.
For instance, using our modules the viewers can tailor their learning experience. If they work best watching and listening for brief amounts of time, pausing to think or discuss with colleagues or friends, this is an ideal method.
The content of our modules is simple: the face and voice of the expert on the subjects covered. (See sample mini module) Professor Patricia Easteal AM has done research, written books and articles about domestic violence, sexual assault, sexual harassment, workplace bullying and violence, violence against women, women in the law, gender bias, unconscious biases, and access to justice since the early 1990s. She has taught about these issues for 20 years ‘turning on cerebral light bulbs’ and winning national awards for her teaching.
Starting in 2013, Easteal converted face-to-face delivery to online delivery. Therefore, both the process and the substance of the e-learning are derived from years of research and teaching.
Whether you or your organisation works within the government or private sectors, are a law firm, corporate, university, not-for-profit community agency, or charity, Legal Light Bulbs e-Learning modules are a powerful tool to inform and educate. Contact Legal Light Bulbs now to find out more.
