General information

Webinars are online versions of a lecture or seminar. For the GE Academy, the duration of webinars is set at 1 to 2 hours and they can host larger audiences, even over 100 people. Due to their short duration and the online formats, webinars tend to be more lecture-driven. Nevertheless, the GE Academy acknowledges the most recent developments webinars tend to increase interactivity and the use of methodologies to foster reflexivity among participants. Available online platforms provide the technical tools that support the implementation of such trends. Therefore, the GE Academy experimented with interactive techniques and novel approaches for webinars, to enhance their effectiveness.
