Why Online Training?
In webinars, video conferences, and remote meetings, we’re organizing and educating groups virtually. These online spaces can feel dull and ineffective, but they don’t have to! And they can’t be if our movements and organizations are to thrive. We need dynamic online spaces that engage all participants, allow for deep collaboration, adapt for learning moments, and keep people coming back. That’s why we’ve developed our new Online Training Series.
The Online Training Series offers innovative tools and techniques for maximizing the effectiveness of virtual groups. The Series includes four online public workshops, each focusing on a unique skill-set. These trainings can be taken individually, but the complete Series is a special opportunity for those wanting to get the most out of the tools and techniques we’ve developed.
Enroll in the Complete Series
When you register for the complete Online Training Series, you get access to all four of our online workshops PLUS one hour of free, individualized coaching from an online trainer. You determine what you want coaching on; possible topics include designing or evaluating online trainings, preparing for an upcoming online meeting, or how to adapt a TFC tool to the software you are using.
The complete Series is for organizers, activists, and educators who facilitate or train virtual groups and want to do it most effectively. It’s designed to be useful across experience levels – from beginner online trainers to those with years of experience wanting to skill-up. No matter what software you use, you’ll find tools and approaches in our series that you can apply.

Coaching for Online Facilitation & Training
Jeanne Rewa, our Online Training Coordinator, is available for hourly individual and group coaching for virtual meeting and training. This can look like 1:1 or small group consulting on how to choose or use specific technology, designing and evaluating online meetings or trainings, or preparing for an upcoming online training or meeting.
“Designing Dynamic Spaces has totally shifted how I run online trainings. Training for Change introduced me to both frameworks and philosophies for creating highly experiential and impactful learning spaces online, and practical tools and resources for getting it done. My new philosophy: any activity you can do in-person involving small group, partner discussion, flipcharts, post-it notes, and most that involve moving around, you can do online. It’s enabled me to run highly interactive online workshops on topics from power mapping to election strategy.”Peter Gibbs
