Thursday, August 20th, 9:30-11:00am

Via Zoom

Level up your virtual facilitation skills by joining Julie Neill, MCDA President and Katie Scheuer, Learning Experience Lead at Workplaceless, for an online crash course where you'll not only learn how to design engaging, interactive virtual workshops, but you’ll also experience one firsthand yourself. We'll share best practices, including a recently launched initiative that won rave reviews, and how to leverage innovative technology tools in order to transform your next virtual training.  

We’ll cover the following:

  • How to design and structure a virtual workshop to ensure participants stay engaged 

  • How to fully leverage all the functionalities of Zoom, including best practices on breakout sessions, as well as other interactive technology tools

  • How to incorporate pre- and post- work to better customize your session based on participants’ needs, maximize your in-session time and extend the learning

We’ll also carve out time during the session to begin designing (or re-designing) an upcoming workshop or training of your own so you can immediately put into practice what you learn.
