For many of us, virtual is the new normal. The global COVID-19 pandemic has shifted and impacted our daily routines in innumerable ways, including the transition of many in-person meetings to virtual platforms. Many professionals may have moved their work online without any training in virtual facilitation skills.
This online professional development program is designed for people who want to work effectively with virtual groups and generate results through virtual interactions.
This program will benefit people who would like to improve their skills in:
- engaging virtual group members
- managing a group’s virtual process and challenges
- handling multiple aspects of virtual technology
- adapting facilitation techniques and tools for virtual environments
This new 5-part training series adapts Strengthening Your Facilitation Skills Level 1 for virtual facilitation and was developed through a collaboration between University of Maine Extension and Maine Sea Grant, New Hampshire Extension, Virginia Cooperative Extension, and University of Vermont Extension
