Mastering Digital Facilitation

Training: Facilitation of Digital Meetings and Workshops

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. That is why, the Anna Lindh Foundation network in Sweden hosted a two-day online workshop on mastering digital facilitation (8 and 11 November 2021). 

21 participants from Sweden, Austria, Latvia, Palestine, Egypt, Croatia, Lithuania, UK and Tunisia had the chance to deeply delve into how to create good digital meetings with a high degree of participation and efficiency.

The workshop had a practical approach where participants got hands on tips for planning, leading and evaluating digital meetings. At the same time, it was built around a theoretical foundation on meeting processes. As an added benefit, several of the techniques and approaches we went through can also be used for on-site meetings.
