Leading Powerful Online Programs – Basic | February 20-21

Build Your Basic Zoom Facilitation Toolkit

This 6-hour workshop will prepare you with basic Zoom tools and activities to create the same lasting impact with your online groups as you do in your in-person programs. Designed especially for people who are newer to using zoom or facilitating online, we will show you how to leverage Zoom to facilitate programs that deliver a deep, interactive, and connected learning experience. You’ll learn tools you can use in any online program, regardless of the content, format, or audience. 

This workshop will give you a taste of the possibilities inherent in creative online facilitation including tools that help with participant accessibility and engagement. Working with these tools takes practice and this workshop will get you started!

Zoom Tools

Practice Zoom basics such as ‘raise hand,’ and ‘view options,’ as well as more advanced tools such as sharing audio and slides effectively, using spotlight and pin features, and setting up breakout rooms.

Participant Engagement

Gain a toolbox of easy-to-lead low risk activities that build a sense of community among participants and help bring even the shyest participants out of their shells.


  • Experience how to build community and connection through creative processes.
  • Gain a toolbox of 15 virtual activities that promote group cohesion.
  • Maximize collaboration using whiteboards, annotation, Google Jamboard and Slides.
  • Unlock the surprising potential of breakout rooms.
  • Share slides, video and music seamlessly.
  • Learn ways to engage even your quietest participants.
  • Explore ways to make your online activities more accessible for your participants.
  • Highlight speakers and online group presentations.

NOTE: This training is similar in content to that of our former “How to Lead Engaging and Interactive Programs Online” training. It teaches a few less tools, but offers more time for practice.
