Online Training: Leading an Online Training or Webinar

Amidst COVID-19, we aim to make online workshops as accessible as possible. Fees are sliding scale; please use accordingly for access to these tools, including naming your own fee. Fees support participants unable to pay, and keep our program sustainable.

The use of online trainings and webinars is key to building the kind of power necessary to take on the problems and solutions organizers are tackling today.


Whether trying to introduce a concept to a large audience, including less-mobile activists whose participation is crucial to the change we seek or reducing our carbon footprint by minimizing travel, more and more information is being distributed online. These trainings often rely on one-directional power points, leaving trainers wondering how much participants absorbed.

This online training covers tools and techniques you can use to develop and lead interactive and engaging webinars, regardless of your technology or budget. Learn how to leverage the benefits of training online while being able to read your group and train on hard content.

This is an interactive online training.  Come prepared to participate fully, just as you would an in-person interactive training.  Be prepared to connect from a quiet place on a computer with headphones.  A computer with a webcam is recommended for maximum connection.  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 introduce resources you can use after the training

Length: 2 hours
