Digital meetings were before the pandemic an interesting opportunity but are now a necessary part of everyday working life. Initially, technical problems were accepted by many, but this has changed and the expectations on digital meetings are much higher nowadays. There are also growing expectations on meeting methods and facilitation adapted to the digital meeting format. We should not simply conduct a regular meeting through a screen, but to a greater extent use the potential that exists in the digital tools available to collaborate.
Even though digital meetings are here to stay, many still feel insecure in facilitating digital meetings and workshops. During two afternoons, there is now a chance to deeply delve into how to create good digital meetings with a high degree of participation and efficiency.
The workshop has a practical approach where you get hands on tips for planning, leading and evaluating digital meetings. At the same time, it is built around a theoretical foundation on meeting processes. As an added benefit, several of the techniques and approaches we go through can also be used for on-site meetings.
After the workshop, you will have received tips and learned insights about what is required for successful online meetings. You will also have learned and tested about ten digital tools suitable for digital meetings.
The training is for persons who in their professional role plan and lead digital meetings and/or workshops, regardless of whether you use Teams, Zoom, Skype or any other digital platform. We expect that if you participate in the training you have a basic knowledge on working digitally. This is not a beginner’s course and we will fill the sessions with so much content that a certain amount of computer skills are required to get the most out of the training.
