Make Virtual Training fun

Start maybe with the idea of structuring sessions with intention.

Remote workshops or remote meetings often go kaput is because people don’t really think through the outcomes they want at the end of the session.

Or, people are not aware of what agenda they will be covering.

So the more we think through or plan through the structure of where we want to facilitate learning, the more effective it will be.

Think through your intention

So think through the intention and what purpose you want to have.

How do we evoke emotions in the group, so that the collaboration feels better the leanings stick?

When people are engaged in what they’re doing, when they’re happier, it leads to much better outcomes.

I think the same goes when it comes to designing virtual training.

Be conscious of group makeup

You want people to feel throughout the session, so try to design around that.

As the facilitator, it’s not your role to have all the answers during the session, it’s your role to guide people.

Be very conscious about the makeup of the group that you’re running.

Try to understand the audience that you’re you’re hosting the workshop for and make sure that the activities that you’re doing are attuned to what those audiences needs are.”

Breakouts are super important in terms of changing the dynamics of the session.

Why facilitation is the future.

We really, really believe that the future is going to be distributed.

We do a lot of remote meetings, whether they be workshops or training, and it’s clear not everyone can become a facilitator.

The dynamics that normally happen in in-person sessions are not the same as online.

You need people to understand how to facilitate effectively, how to pull people into conversations, how to get them to collaborate effectively with each other.

So when they’re working in a distributed manner, they can run their teams much better.

So that’s like the crux of it, why we believe it’s important
