What is facilitation?

A facilitator is someone who makes a group process or task easier. They do this by guiding groups through a process, helping to develop understanding, and improve participation and collaboration. By employing facilitation techniques and methods, the best facilitators help teams move towards their desired outcomes in a structured manner.

What is Virtual Learning session/meeting?

Virtual learning and/or training goes by many names, including synchronous online training, virtual classroom training, and virtual, instructor-led training. Virtual training is a highly interactive, instructor-led training class, with defined learning objectives and participants who come together using a web-based classroom platform. These platforms include Zoom, Adobe Connect, Teams, and many more. All of them include a suite of tools to help learners and the trainer interact and communicate by using chat, whiteboards, breakout rooms, screen sharing, and more.

What is the difference in a virtual meeting facilitation?

Traditionally, facilitators work with groups in live settings, facilitating workshops, team development days, training sessions and more. As more organizations and teams become remotely distributed and have staff spread out all over the world, the need for facilitators to help facilitate workshops or meetings in a remote setting is growing.

Many experts think remote facilitation and the running of online workshops is going to be increasingly common and important in the future. Developing the skills and resources to be an effective facilitator will future proof your team and business and enable you to work with virtual teams and remote workers.

Why you should Attend:

Whether you are a seasoned facilitator wanting to make the move to remote facilitation or the manager of a remote team, the guide and best practices presented in this program will help you and your team make the most of the time you spend together online.


After this session, you will be able to understand role of a facilitator, producer and broadcaster. In the virtual classroom, voice is the most essential instructional tool. Interactivity and learner engagement are driven by the facilitator's and participants' voices. You will understand how synchronous facilitators can use their voice and questioning techniques to maximize engagement in the audio environment and read participants 'body language in bandwidth.'

There will be practical tips and activities to show you how to use your voice to effectively engage participants, create an effective audio environment and craft questions to which participants can effectively respond, while identifying participant cues that take the place of body language and eye contact.

How can the facilitator and producer work together to enhance the synchronous session impact?

A producer, or assistant facilitator, can help transform synchronous programs into trouble-free, fast moving, interactive events that keep learners involved and facilitators on track. Through numerous practice exercises, this session provides insight on how facilitators can stay focused on content while the producer takes care of everything else.

A virtual meeting's success often depends on the guidance of a facilitator, so it's important to learn the skills and tools that you'll need to succeed in this role.

When participants haven't met before, icebreakers can encourage everyone to relax and get acquainted before discussing business. You could ask attendees to introduce themselves and give some information about what they do; then do an exercise that helps them find out more about one another. Think about and try out icebreakers well before the event to ensure that they'll have the desired effect.

And make sure that you're completely comfortable with the virtual meeting software. Rehearse using its tools and facilities beforehand - you need to be able to operate them effortlessly during the meeting.

Why you should Attend:

You are working in a new normal reality: a global market, more volatile, more virtual, more competitive, more challenging, more demanding. The reality is that virtual meetings require even more rigor and understanding of facilitative techniques than in-person meetings.

So, whether you are a seasoned facilitator wanting to make the move to remote facilitation or the manager of a remote team, the guide and best practices presented in this program will help you and your team make the most of the time you spend together online.

It is a very powerful program that combines theory and practice to prepare participants on how effective facilitation can generate impacts. Along the webinar you will be learning and applying the Problem-Based Learning approach and discuss real cases and researches in neuroscience.

You will identify your facilitation profile and will build up an impactful story using practical storytelling principles that can be applied at the virtual learning meetings, business presentations immediately after the program - this will generate observable results.
