In this course we’ll cover:
1. Why Convene Online: In the first module, we’ll lay out all the evidence and key considerations that support activating the virtual medium for your experience delivery. We’ll then end with the beginning: we’ll define your experience’s purpose, audience, and objectives, and we’ll begin to imagine possible virtual communities.
2. Anatomy of a Good Agenda: With Zoom fatigue increasingly rampant, how can we design agendas that drive engagement while appropriately structuring activities and breaks? What does it mean to build community-based agendas that keep engagement high while enhancing learning? In this module, we’ll talk through the anatomy of a good agenda: something that can be applied no matter the type of virtual experience.
3. Designing for Engagement: In this module, we’ll begin to design the actual activities in which attendees will participate during the experience. We’ll explain how to take presentations to the next level, and walk you through what to do when you’re ready to ditch the PowerPoint all together.
4. Virtual Facilitation: You’ve defined your objectives, created an agenda, and designed your activities; so how do you put it all together into a seamless virtual experience? In this module, we’ll review best practices for virtual facilitation, and share what we’ve learned at TechChange from 10+ years of managing online learning experiences and engaging participants.
