The Art of Online Creative Facilitation

A course on how to deliver brilliant and creative workshops and
classes online 

The virtual workshop has become ubiquitous over the last couple of years, and although face to face interaction is back, virtual working isn’t going to go away.  Most organisations who deliver training, workshops, classes or other similar things are now looking at a hybrid approach, catering for everyone.

This course is for you if:


You’ve resisted moving your facilitation online but now realise you might need to


You’re already delivering online but would like some inspiration and new tips and tricks


You’re fairly new to facilitation and would like to learn more


You’re a s**t hot facilitator, love delivering online but always open to new ideas

 This 2 hour, interactive lively course will explore:


  • The basic tenets of good facilitation

  • What needs to be adapted in a virtual space

  • How to keep everyone safe and included

  • How to deliver in creative ways, and inject playfulness into your facilitation

  • How to use zoom to its full potential

Alongside the 2 hour session, you will also receive resources on different apps/platforms you can use, how to set up a second camera, a sample Working with Children & Vulnerable Adults Online policy and more.

Bonus: Exclusive opportunity to join the monthly meet-up group (The Online Creative Facilitation Playground) upon completion of attending the Art of Online Creative Facilitation Workshop
