Présentation du cours

COVID-19 and the ensuing lockdowns accelerated the adoption and transition of pedagogical paradigms from a largely offline-mode, in which technology augmented learning, to an online-mode where technology is becoming as important as pedagogy.

This transition was quick, or maybe too quick! Those who were tech-savvy caught on early, those camera-friendly were at ease.

To cope with the constantly evolving training practises in online settings and to provide some clarity on the different dimensions required by facilitating in online settings, ITCILO has designed an online course on Facilitation techniques for online events, which is meant to improve the skills of trainers and facilitators of online events and courses.
