Trainers in command of the management of face to face presentations and activities can leverage these strengths to adapt to facilitation in online spaces such as virtual classrooms, forums, voice boards, social media and various “apps”. Awareness of the absence of usual cues – body language, posture, eye contact, attitude – requires strategies to monitor, build and sustain engagement. In this webinar, we’ll explore a range of approaches to facilitating activities including brainstorming, scenarios, student presentations, “what if” & contingencies, role play, guest speakers, group work. We’ll discuss using online cues to “read” and “provoke” the student’s audience such as app notifications and “push” activities. Finally, we’ll explore options for providing feedback to learners through audio, video and digital annotations.

Learning Outcomes
  • Monitor and determine student presence in the activity
  • Manage activities in a variety of online environments for student participation
  • Evaluate the range of facilitation tools available to find the best fit for your cohort
  • Incorporate learning content, readings, videos as set ups for online sessions.
