How can you make collaboration in virtual environments more interactive and outcome-oriented? How can you bring more energy and active participation to your online meetings? How do you keep one eye on process tasks and another on group dynamics when all you can see is your computer?
These are a few of the many questions we address in this 1.5-day module, helping you overcome challenges nurturing collaboration online by thinking through how you can combine some readily available online technologies with the best of your collaborative process design skills, and a little creativity!
Online tools are ever-more a part of our collaborative working practices. All the time new tools are being released, others becoming ubiquitous, and some obsolete. Together we’ll look at some of the online tools readily available today that seem to hold the greatest promise for facilitating collaboration and creating change, and have fun whilst practicing using them!
For this module, participants need to bring a laptop and headphones.
