Comments from Previous Participants

Goals for Session
By the conclusion of this session, participants should:
• Understand the fundamentals of online meeting design and facilitation
• Design the critical elements of an online meeting
• Identify the appropriate technological tools to use in a given meeting
• Use and identify compelling interactive visuals to engage participants
Note: This session is not a technical training on specific tools, rather an introduction to creating meaningful online experiences. However, we will share free technical training resources, which are publicly available.
We will use Zoom and Google Slides. Free versions of both tools are available. The session is applicable even if you use other online communication tools such as WebEx, GoToMeeting, Skype, or Microsoft Teams. Because of the interactive nature of the session, we ask that you engage for the full session, using both audio and video.
