What is the session about?

 

 

[Month of September, 2020] At the time of this writing, the world is still dealing with the aftermath of the first Covid-19 outbreak. Until the time a vaccine is approved and administered to the human population, we continue to live in this ‘new norm’, and perhaps, beyond.

As resilient as we are as a species, we have moved businesses and the way we conduct whatever we do to the online, or virtual, environment. And as the organisations move there, so do we, as adult educators and facilitators, to serve the needs of our stakeholders. While some of our previous skillsets in the physical classroom may be ported over, some, unfortunately, may not. And with physical distancing ever becoming an obstacle in the way we create relationships to make learning social, engaging and interactive, we are faced with that challenge. Of creating engagement, of creating a social environment such that learning can be transferred effectively to our participants.

This evening’s sharing exposes you to a variety of tips and tricks used in online facilitation, to hopefully inspire you with some new ideas on how to bring about a higher level of engagement for your virtual classroom.

 

What does the session cover?

 

  • A variety of ideas to inspire your next virtual classroom session
  • Facilitation tips and tricks that supports learning
  • Introduction to the Miro platform to support learning
  • A selection of facilitation processes and tools to elicit learning from participants, rather than telling them

About the speaker

Gerauld Wong (Mr)

Lead Facilitator | Oopa! Consulting

Greenlight Classrooms, Impact Teacher, ALC (WIAL), CBC (DISC), ACTA, TOP (ICA), DCF (VMC), 6”I”s Innovation Practitioner, TES Facilitator/Master Trainer

Gerauld’s personal and professional mission is to move people forward: to have personal power, to have choice, to be effective.

He is a Learning and Process Specialist who believes strongly that, “When you grow, your team grows”. His personal and professional mission is "moving people forward... holistically" by driving awareness and igniting motivation within oneself.

Gerauld is also a strong advocate of unconventional, albeit based on science, facilitation strategies to create engagement and deeper conversations, and value-based leadership development. The amalgamation of his diverse exposures and experiences allows him to pilot in a unique blend of learning and process delivery methods and techniques.

Gerauld's methodologies have greatly influenced practitioners and individuals in personal growth and development with direct and indirect impact in supporting the growth of countless organizations and schools around the Asian Region for the past 17 years. He uses extensively the VAK (Values drives Attitude, which drives usage of Knowledge) mindset as a foundation for his designs. This allows the learner to use one’s moral compass as the guide to his/her own individual learning.
