NZ001T03 Facilitator Training - Course Summary

Dear participants,

Thank you for joining me today. Usually this post would be a 'comment' attached to the post for the session in the Course Group, but as this course only has one session, this post also acts as the 'round up' summary.

As we all experienced, today's session was shaky. I'm sorry for the issues you have encountered which, as I said in the meeting, after many years of using Adobe Connect, I have not seen to the extent we saw today. We will have a protocol in place shortly for what to do should a facilitator-led session become untenable. As a facilitator, it is always a difficult decision to make whether to carry on or abandon the session, most of the time carrying on is ok when resources can be provided afterwards. Thank you for your perseverance. I will let you know when the video is available.

Slides from today are attached to this post. I have also attached the Remote PDE Facilitator Guidance (which is NOT usually shared with participants). It is much lighter than a usual PDE, but may help you relate what you see in the Course Group and Adobe Connect session. 

Further support:

As mentioned, you are all great facilitators. Don't let the bells and whistles of technology get in the way of the participant experience. At the end of the day, you have slides for live session, your subject knowledge and teaching expertise, and a text chat box to communicate with participants. Use that 'live' time together well to prompt participants to think, contribute and learn from each other. Use the Course Group to sustain engaement, create participant tasks and use that space for sharing ideas and learning from each other too.

Good luck and enjoy the experience!

Best wishes,
