eFacilitate

efacilitate for elearning

I facilitate online and so do many of my colleagues around the world. eFacilitation is an important skill for the organised and elearning savvy teachers and coordinators in our educational and corporate environments. This is a new series of webinars being introduced to budding eFacilitators everywhere.

Know your tools, work with people

Facilitating is about working with people, whether it is online or face to face. Every facilitator needs to be able to use the tools for the job: the learning platform (Moodle); the web conferencing system (Elluminate); and other communication tools such as email, skype or messaging.

The tools though, are secondary. Please join us to identify good facilitation practice and discuss the question:

What does an eFacilitator do?

Facilitators are skilled practitioners who have well developed capabilities for guiding, motivating, stewarding, supporting, stretching and challenging learners in online learning environments.

How do you know if you have those capabilities to become an eFacilitator? Please join us to identify the attributes and attitudes; skills and knowledge; experience and evidence for the role of an eFacilitator and to discuss this question:
