Designing Dynamic Spaces Online

How to support groups to connect and engage in deeper work together in online spaces.

Amidst COVID-19, we aim to make online workshops as accessible as possible. Fees are sliding scale; please use accordingly for access to these tools, including naming your own fee. Fees support participants unable to pay, and keep our program sustainable.

Online meetings and trainings can be creative, engaging, and dynamic, especially when participants dare to stretch outside their comfort zones, make themselves seen and heard, and participate boldly. Tools for building energized and expressive spaces online can make meetings and trainings more effective, inclusive and impactful. 

As facilitators and trainers, we have many options while designing the agenda and facilitating in the moment to maximize participation and create the spaciousness for exploration and connection. In this advanced online training, we explore how core concepts of experiential facilitation such as container building and the integration-differentiation principle can be applied online. 

It is recommended, but not required, to attend the Intro to Facilitating Online Meetings training or Intro to Training Online before taking this training.

This is an interactive online training using the Zoom platform. Come prepared to participate fully, just as you would an in-person training. Please try to connect from a quiet place on a computer with headphones. A computer with a webcam and high-speed internet are recommended to get the most out of the training.

Details for how to connect will be sent prior to the training. The training will include follow-up resources you can use after. We’ll cover tech strategies that apply across software options, but for training on specific software, individual coaching is recommended.


This training will take place online in the Zoom meetings platform. Our trainings offer multiple ways to engage in activities and we do our best to apply best practices in visual accessibility on our slides and handouts including using high contrast and alt text. Closed captioning, sign language interpretation, and advanced copies of the slides are offered if requests are received up to 1 week before the training.
