There are three video clips that I wanted to share with my seminar participants this week. Instead of the typical, old-fashioned approach – projecting them to the whole group - I decided to turn them into QR codes and set them up at three separate stations.
Quick Response Codes (QR) are two dimensional bar codes that are usually linked to a URL. When scanned with a mobile device, this visual code quickly takes the user to the linked content. Easy to generate, QR Codes can be linked to expert interviews, demonstration videos, Google documents or content related web sites.
By hanging the QR codes on the wall at three different stations, I had participants up and moving. I also provided questions at each station to guide them in their discussion with their colleagues.
Not only were participants more actively engaged, but this approach freed me up to wander, check-in with people and assess how the learning was progressing.
No more sage on the stage – instead honor your participants’ expertise and be a guide on the side!
