What's Your Preference - Webinar or F2F Training?

Whether you are more responsible for classroom technology or fully online support, do you, personally, prefer to "attend" trainings online or in person?

For me, I actually enjoy the face-to-face time for the sense of community - clearly I'm not referring to "meetings" . Then there are times that the topic is such that I'd just rather take it on my own time and work it in.

Your thoughts?


{my background for this topic}

I am employed full-time, remotely. While my employer actually proposed the idea to me, and pays for me to come out to California for a week every month, what I find interesting is around the culture of Faculty Training. They want me to do all of the trainings in person. Sure, I enjoy that time, especially presenting, but they are also undergoing the culture-change where faculty and administration need to understand the importance and efficacy of online components that they didn't have before.
