Shift Happens: Design Principles for a Virtual World

Individuals, groups, and organizations are in the middle of recreating how we work together. Learn theories, tools, and techniques to help!


Individuals, groups, and organizations are in the middle of recreating how we work together. There are theories, tools, and techniques to help facilitators and conveners create the space for them to do so. Come learn about image shift theory and how it applies to designing meetings so that you are able to help groups:

  • Create small incremental change in the middle of large global change
  • Be meaningfully engaged
  • Be responsive, organized, and timely

You will experience a virtual learning community and leave the sessions with tools to support you in your meeting design on any virtual platform of your choosing.

 We will be using Google Slides and Zoom for this training. There will be pre-work and homework in-between the two training sessions.

Course Applicable To:

  • Meeting facilitators
  • Educators
