Getting the most of online workshops

We thought it was timely to reiterate some tips for online workshops.

A suitable learning environment

Find a place to learn that is a suitable ‘learning environment’ – whether at home or in the practice. We recommend that you should be in a quiet room with minimal distractions.

Don’t participate while out on a walk, and certainly not while driving a car (that’s actually illegal).

Make the most of scheduled session breaks

Get something to eat and drink and move around rather than checking your phone.

It’s a ‘real’ workshop

Treat your online workshop just as you would a face-to-face workshop.

Eliminate distractions

Put your phone away – don’t be tempted to check your phone if your video is off.

Actively participate

Just because you’re not physically at a workshop shouldn’t stop you from participating, if you want to ask a question and it’s not a suitable time use the chat box.

Reward yourself at the end of the workshop

Step away from your computer, have a good stretch and have a break!
