Intro to Facilitating Online Meetings

How to engage your group and make better decisions in remote meetings

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.

A strong team communicates effectively, builds trust in the face of challenges, and makes thoughtful decisions to advance its goals, while being inclusive of all voices. Unfortunately, online meetings can become boring or stagnant, hiding group and power dynamics and limiting a team’s ability to achieve its goals. 

This introductory workshop offers experiential tools and techniques to facilitate online team meetings that support trust-building, effective decision-making and engagement of all members, regardless of technology and budget.

Length: 2 hours

  • Acquire tools for effective and inclusive decision-making and communication in remote teams that you can apply immediately.

People whose rely on technology to build their teams remotely and want to increase their effectivity using interactive and experiential tools. We welcome a range of experiences – from beginner online facilitators to those with more experience. Some face-to-face facilitation experience is helpful for 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. 

If there is anything else that would make this training more accessible to you, please email us directly or make a note in your registration form.
