During the session
During the session, you are one of up to 15 students participating in an online course led by 2 experienced facilitators. You are guided by the course facilitator through practice exercises that develop your skills. You can print off your course booklet before training or if your monitor is large enough, simply arrange the booklet in a window on your screen to use as you work through the exercises. During the session, you can see the facilitator’s screen and participate by using Chat or by ‘raising your hand’ – both features within Gototraining. One qualified, experienced facilitator leads the session with the support of a co-facilitator, who answers individual questions and keeps each participant’s learning on track.
