Event Description

Please click “Register Now” to register for this event. This event will be hosted online on Zoom. 

For those of us who facilitate group work, discussions, and meetings, the online space requires the use of educational tools that can facilitate collaboration. In this session we will explore tools for facilitating collaborative group work. We will highlight Zoom options (e.g. annotation tool, polling); Visual brainstorming platforms (e.g. Padlet and Jamboard); and collaborative working documents (e.g. Google docs/slides).

With a focus on synchronous facilitation, in this session participants will:

  • Be introduced to tools for collaborative brainstorming
  • Practice using select tools and strategies
  • Discuss the adaptability of these tools for use in a variety of contexts

*This session replaces the OTP’s summer workshop, “Facilitating Peer-to-Peer Engagement”. There will be some overlap of previous activities, yet some new tools introduced.
