Online Training: Facilitating Online Meetings
Connection and communication is a key part of any group’s ability to create an effective and powerful team.
Trying to achieve this through online video chats or virtual conferences presents unique challenges – meetings may feel flat, it’s difficult to know whether people are engaged and issues of power and access get swept under the rug in order to accomplish other goals.
In this online training, we’ll explore and demonstrate tools and techniques you can use to facilitate virtual meetings that are engaging and inclusive, regardless of your team’s technology or budget. Attending this training will increase your team’s ability to make decisions that include all voices and build strong relationships over distance.
This is an interactive online training. Come prepared to participate fully, just as you would an in-person interactive training. Please try to connect from a quiet place on a computer with headphones. A computer with a webcam is recommended to get the most out of the training. High speed internet will give you the best experience. Details for how to connect to the session will be sent to you prior to the day of the training. The training will include follow-up resources you can use after.
Length: 1.5 hours
