About the event

How to Design and Facilitate On-Line Classes will explore practices for putting together written on-line classes and/or Zoom sessions for building and facilitating life-giving online courses. We’ll especially look at TLA-related workshops, such as writing, storytelling, poetry, spoken word, and other ways to be a word artist in the world.

In this two-hour session, Joy and Caryn—who have over 50 years of combined workshop facilitation experience between them—will guide you on a journey of what to ask yourself, think about, research, and plan out when considering an online workshop.

While this class is an overview of questions to live your way into finding your best way forward, we’ll also share lots of resources and considerations to help you start thinking or deepen your thinking about:

  • How to zero in on a focus that fits the time, audience, and your callings.
  • The best shape of your workshop: a one-time session, a multi-week class, or a day or weekend-long retreat.
  • Ways to begin, develop, and end sessions, pacing them in tune with your people and focus.
  • How to craft a flexible but sturdy curriculum that can bend as needed.
  • Effective facilitation in action on Zoom or online platforms, including how to engage students, balance participation, and navigate potential challenges.
  • Ethical considerations to keep in mind when it comes to online teaching.
  • How to work with time in online settings for refreshing and energizing classes.
