A crash course in live online facilitation

A crash course in live online facilitation -   In this 90 minute session learn how to run engaging live online session 

Almost overnight facilitators, many trainers and teachers have had to move from face to face learning experiences to live online sessions.  Online facilitation is radically different from face to face facilitation. It’s harder to engage learners, harder to monitor their progress.  It’s easy for the online session to become just a passive presentation not an interactive experience. 

In just 90 minutes you will learn: 

  • how to engage learners 
  • simple learning design tactics to transform face to face sessions into online learning 
  • how our self and technical management is one of the keys to a great session  
  • strategies for dealing with most common group issues     
  • how to use the whiteboards to increase participation 

This session is a rapid way to develop your skills as an online facilitator.
