Q&A Session: How to Effectively Facilitate Engaging Online Discussions
12:30-13:30 Wednesday 20 January 2021
Join Befriending Networks for a Q&A Session; a time to ask questions, get support and exchange ideas with other befriending services. Since March 2020, we've been zooming, whatsapp-ing, meeting on teams and attending and hosting all sort of digital gatherings on a variety of platforms. What works in a face-to-face conversation doesn't always translate directly into a digital conversation. This discussion will focus on how to make the most of digital interactions; covering topics such as, what tech and features you've learned about, which platforms you and your staff/volunteers prefer to use and what features make them work for you, ice breakers or techniques of bringing everyone into the conversation and more!
