Online, in-person, hybrid? Our possibilities for workshop formats have increased in the last two years. We have discovered and enjoyed getting to know digital tools which make online workshops fun and diversified. However, no matter which new digital platform or tool with more possibilities will emerge, what we always need is to facilitate in a holistic, inclusive and participatory way. And this is possible with simplicity or complexity.
How can we work human-centered and interactive in front of computers? How can we create meaningful connections while sitting in different physical spaces? And how can we include the context of each participant? Join this training to learn, explore and practice holistic facilitation online.
This training is not just about learning the basic digital tools for online workshops. It goes beyond the tools and technologies. It is about learning and reflecting how to facilitate online in a holistic and interactive way, taking into account our heart, head and hands, and creating a safe and brave space for participants to learn, share and practice their learnings.
Online time is precious but learning together and from each other is enriching and valuable. Therefore, we offer a blended learning training comprised of five live sessions on Zoom and asynchronous tasks in between. In the live sessions we will focus on what we can really only do together – peer-exchange, reflection and practice, whereas readings and theoretical input will be provided as tasks in between the sessions.
The training covers:
- how to design interactive and inclusive online workshops
- practice and reflection on participatory methods online
- exploration of online learning formats with simplicity and complexity
- what (not) to do while facilitating sessions online
- digital learning environments, life hacks, tools and methods to make your online facilitation more effective and enjoyable
- how to avoid online fatigue
- access to a community of education practitioners working in diverse settings
You will experience:
- a good balance between theory and practice delivered in five two-hour-long sessions via Zoom
- self-directed learning with readings and group work in between the sessions
- interactive online sessions delivered by experienced facilitators
- a learning community, with opportunities to exchange ideas and gain feedback from other participants
- a purpose-driven and process-oriented training design
This training is for you if:
- you wish to explore holistic, interactive facilitation and how to apply it in online settings
- you are facilitating online sessions and wish to learn more tools and methods and reflect on your current practice
- you are planning to facilitate online in the future and are looking for guidance
- you want to connect with other facilitators, project managers and educators to exchange and learn from each other
