What you will learn
While online meeting platforms have several features such as polls, chats, whiteboards, and breakout groups, few people know how to couple them with advanced-level engagement strategies. In this ½ day course, you won’t just learn what to do, or just see how to do it, you will actually do it. You will come away from this class confident that you can make your next virtual meeting buzz with excitement. Why? Because you will have practiced using your platform’s advanced features yourself to maximize participant engagement.
Discover How To:
- Incorporate the features of online platforms with advanced engagement strategies such as Dump and Clump, Rotating Flip Charts, and One Minute Collaboration
- Implement these strategies in a variety of sessions, such as strategy, action planning, status meetings, etc.
Note: This course is taught using the Zoom platform, however we will teach you how to incorporate the engagement techniques using other platforms such as Microsoft Teams and WebEx.
