Workshop: Facilitating Virtual Collaboration

Overview

The Grove’s Facilitating Virtual Collaboration workshop provides a treasure chest of best practices and tools for successful remote work. You will tackle the unique challenges that come with virtual facilitation and learn how to run distraction-resistant, productive and visually engaging online meetings. This hands-on workshop provides you with what you need to transfer your face-to-face facilitation skills to remote settings.

You will work with our seasoned workshop leaders who bring years of field experience facilitating virtual and visual meetings. Watch behind-the-scenes and learn how they solve real-time challenges, plan effective co-facilitation, and navigate the inevitable technology glitches that arise in remote work.

Of Special Note

  • This is a live online course and the sessions are not recorded.
  • This course does have a large visual component, but it is not a virtual graphic recording course.
  • No special equipment is required other than the ability to connect to a web meeting.
  • Familiarity with Zoom and Mural is a plus but not required—we will orient you to these tools in the class.

Highlights

  • Learn strategies and best practices for inclusion when participants have varying tech capacity.
  • Develop fluency with different collaborative platforms, such as communication platforms, digital whiteboards and web-conferencing applications, and know what to look for so your chosen platforms support your meeting outcomes.
  • Build a toolbox of high-engagement visual techniques and best practices.
  • Learn best practices online for supporting contribution from everyone—drawing out quiet people and managing strong personalities.
  • Learn methods for enhancing personal connections and deepening relationships, building community online.
  • Learn how to design effective meetings using The Grove Facilitation Model™.
