VIRTUAL FACILITATION MASTERCLASS

Leading Engaging and Productive Virtual Collaboration

This Virtual Facilitation Masterclass will help participants take their learning from the Agile Team Facilitation class or other similar facilitation courses and learn key principles and techniques to translate those skills into a virtual environment with a distributed team.

The class is brought to you in partnership with TeamCatapult who has been leading remote experiences since 2015 and teaching remote facilitation since 2017.

“Working with groups virtually offers us as coaches, facilitators and trainers many new possibilities geographically, but it only works if our participants have the same quality of connection, collaboration and control than if we were in the same room together. Currently most people are with virtual facilitation where we were with internet shops 20 years ago – simply porting the in-person experience to a virtual tool – but virtual meetings and training can in fact be BETTER than in-person. Except for the hugs!.”Antoinette Coetzee

Module 3

Deciding Remotely
