Facilitating Virtual Collaboration

Keble College Oxford

September 18, 2009, 9.00-17.00

Virtual collaboration tools have mushroomed and matured at the same time. There are thousands of tools and platforms such as online conference systems, blogs, wikis, chat rooms, forums, social networks, social bookmarking sites, files sharing, etc., which allow small and big groups to work together for a common goal. Many profit and non-profit organizations are using such tools for communication and collaboration with their internal and external stakeholders. In the future, most workshops, seminars, conferences will have a virtual component. Other events will be entirely online. Besides real-time events, the demand for facilitation of asynchronous processes of organizational development is high.

We offer you a practice oriented seminar to upgrade your skills for navigation and communication in the virtual world.
