Virtual Facilitation and Humanity

April 03, 2020 3:25 PM | Tammy Rogers (Administrator)

This week I've facilitated my first virtual classes.

To be honest -- I have always shied away from the virtual/webinar world for 2 reasons...

  • I don't dig technology.
  • I dig relationships.

I spend a lot of time creating a safe space in the classroom so that together we can tell our truths and find solutions that will work. And I just didn't know how to do that if people were not face-to-face with one another.

And then comes the pandemic...

So I'm not the kind of person who is just going to check out and wait for the world to get back to normal. We're never going to GO BACK to normal. We're going to have a new normal. So I know I HAVE to figure it out...

And Zoom becomes a new tool for me!

So what is the most interesting thing I have I learned in 4 days of virtual facilitation? Humanity is easily inserted in a virtual world. This week not only have I met Program Managers, Technical Assistants and Vice Presidents. I've also met Moms, Dads, Neighbors and Kids...

Even Kids with Fur.
