Online Facilitation Training

Moving to virtual facilitation through Microsoft Teams can be considered unfamiliar territory for those that are used to delivering programmes face to face.

The QI Team have developed a new 1.5 hour session, where you will be shown how to get the best out of Microsoft Teams when delivering training, including the following topics:

  • How to structure an effective online learning event
  • How to design engaging slides and visuals
  • How to use Teams Functions to make your sessions interactive and engaging

These sessions are for individuals that already have knowledge on basic Teams functions and would like to learn specifically about facilitation using the platform. 

Please follow the below links to sign up. Please note: there are limited places per session please only sign up for one.
