Upskilling Scotland's Civic Society
Friday 2nd December, 1.30pm - 4.30pm
Delivered online via Teams
Post lockdown, some things about working life have changed, perhaps permanently. There is a lot more home working, and the amount of time that we spend online, using platforms like Zoom or Teams, is certain to increase.
To help you transition to this new way of working, Civicos Training has developed this half-day training session, Online Facilitation Skills.
A good facilitator ensures that all voices are heard, that key messages are understood and that there is commitment by every person involved.
We begin this online session, by looking at how really good facilitators get the best from a meeting or a team. We outline the core behaviours of an effective facilitator, gain an understanding of the role, and examine the key characteristics of groups and group dynamics.
We then look at the challenges that are unique to online facilitation.
What are the main differences with face to face contact and online contact?
How do we ensure everyone gets an input?
How do we keep everyone engaged?
Do group dynamics change with online contact?
How do we reach a consensus decision?
The session finishes by looking at the various tools that you can bring through online collaboration, such as file-sharing, virtual breakout rooms, flagging and using facilitator notes.
The course is being delivered online, using the video conferencing service Teams.
