A Gallup virtual course is much more than just a webinar. Through a combination of live video calls and independent learning assignments, you'll integrate new tools and discoveries into your everyday life right away.
For example, a day in one of Gallup's most popular virtual courses begins with a live video call. You'll meet a new network of instructors and classmates and work together with full video, audio and interactive functionality such as chat and breakout conversations. During an extended lunch break, your instructors will assign you a selection of podcasts, articles or online tools to explore.
Gallup's accomplished course leaders are successful in the workplace and the classroom. You'll get to know these instructors who bring Gallup's science and research to life through practical tools and meaningful interaction. When you learn outside the walls of a physical classroom, the possibilities to change, grow and become even stronger are endless.
This is why we do what we do.
"It was intense and extremely engaging! It was not like a webinar where the speaker presents and most people listen and multitask at the same time. It was focused, effective and everyone was on time. Because it was a virtual course, the facilitators were intentional to break the session into very manageable bits between teaching, discussions, practice and breakouts. The trainers were excellent."
"The instructors made online learning interesting, interactive and fun. The ease at which all attendees were able to participate and activities given surprised me. During most training courses, you sit in the same place each day and look at the backs of people's heads, straining to hear what they are saying. It was refreshing to see people's faces when they answered and asked questions."
"This was the most content-rich, personable and in-depth online course I have ever taken. We were able to see everyone's faces and reactions, which is something you miss when you are in a physical classroom and can't see everyone. The knowledge gained, relationships built and the development in my personal coaching style is priceless."
"I've never experienced a program that had so much rich content supporting it. I was surprised with how engaging the online program was. The instructors were very in-tuned with our reactions and used the tools to monitor the chat and raise-hand-type requests. Our breakout sessions gave a richer experience with greater opportunity to connect with more of the classmates than in-person classes."
Founder & Partner
"What surprised me most about the virtual course experience was how engaging it was! Gallup utilized many tools and functions that replicated the in-person experience. We were frequently placed in breakout rooms for small-group discussion, which really helped us interact with each other and gain an appreciation for the content. This was by far the best training I've ever participated in."
