The virtual learning world creates new challenges for facilitators and fortunately, many of the ideas from live facilitation can easily be adapted for the virtual learning space. In this Facilitator-led, online course, you will learn impactful ideas that work in the classroom, both virtually and in-person.
- Facilitating vs Presenting.
- “Assisting in the Exploration” of content.
- Understanding trainer relationship with “Power.”
Instructional Design Essentials
- The “4 Ps” and how they guide us in crafting the learning experience.
Adult Learning Principles
- What to keep in mind as we create a learning experience.
- Main learning styles and adjustments Trainers can make.
Compelling Openings (with practice!)

- Securing Audience attention.
- Quasi-Formula for creating Compelling Openings (and a delivery opportunity!).
- Three critical “buckets” of types of questions most useful for facilitating.
- Practice crafting questions.
- Front of the Room (or Camera!): exploring the link between audience needs and Facilitator actions.
Virtual Training Strategies
- Content and discussion around application of curriculum to meet the needs of the “virtual learner”.
Practice Virtual Delivery
- Each participant will run a remote learning session of 10-15 minutes in length. The session does not require having a beginning, middle, end, and instead will focus on 10-15 minutes of Virtual Facilitation. Participant will send out invites on their platform of choice. It is suggested that Facilitators invite a colleague from their company to serve in the “Producer” role, handling any technical issues, managing chat box, etc. More details will be provided in Session 3.
