Mastering Facilitation Series - Leading Engaging Meetings and Webinars: Webinar (11/25/14) 

Mastering Facilitation Series

NEFLIN is offering three online, highly interactive classes designed to improve your skills when leading online meetings, webinars, and events. These classes are for those with experience using online meeting technology, but wanting to create a meeting experience where attendees are actively engaged and learning is the focus. The three classes may be taken individually as stand-alone classes, or as a series. One “master” session is also provided for interested attendees to practice their skills and receive individualized coaching from the instructor.

Facilitation: Leading Engaging Meetings and Webinars

Topics to be addressed:

  • Myth-busting: Does face-to-face always trump online interactions?
  • Effectively using our face-to-face techniques in an online environment
  • Working effectively with an audience we cannot see
  • Using instructional design tools (ADDIE and Rapid Design) to gather information and shape successful meetings and webinars

Participants will:

  1. Be able to demonstrate familiarity with basic tools and techniques that produce engaging online meetings and webinars
  2. Have at least three ideas to develop to meet the online meeting/learning needs of their staff and/or library users
  3. Have at least two ideas for needs assessments they can conduct in their library as part of efforts to develop meetings or webinars that serve their organizations, staff, and library users
