Virtual Engagement Strategies virtual workshop






Primary Competency

Communication Skills

Join us for this interactive and hands-on workshop on virtual engagement strategies. Being able to engage people outside of an in-person space can feel challenging. Whether you’re looking to engage with a team of staff working remotely, coalition members who you want to stay connected with outside of meetings, partners spread across a wide geographic distance, or training participants, this workshop will explore practical skills and techniques you can employ for productivity and inclusion.

The workshop format will start with brief overview presentations and demonstrations on the following:

  • Project management and communication tools such as Basecamp, Microsoft Teams, and Slack that keep groups connected and productive outside of meetings.
  • Virtual meeting platform of Zoom – highlighting strategies and features for in-meeting engagement and interaction.
  • Padlet as a tool for in-meeting or between-meeting engagement with groups.

Workshop participants will then have an opportunity to break into smaller groups to practice using the tools and/or discuss with presenters and peers how various tools and strategies might be used to achieve their engagement goals.
