ABOUT THE LEARNING SESSION:
Through collaboration with the New England ATTC, we are offering two training sessions on using Zoom to conduct virtual trainings, education programs and presentations. Space is limited and available only to prevention practitioners within New England (CT, MA, ME, NH, RI, VT).
The trainings are intended for those who are or will be hosting or facilitating prevention virtually via Zoom. If you have been leading prevention programs virtually during the pandemic, this is an opportunity to enhance your skills and knowledge on using Zoom and conducting programs virtually. You can sign up for either or both of the training sessions.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to limited space, this training is only open to prevention practitioners within the New England Region (CT, MA, ME, NH, RI, VT). The trainings specifically address features and settings within Zoom, although some lessons may be applicable to other virtual meeting programs.
ZOOM 101 - Tuesday, May 25, 1:00-3:00 pm
Zoom 101: This training will introduce participants to basic to intermediate Zoom functions to build the foundational skills necessary to host and facilitate any virtual meeting, training, and/or conference. Participants will learn how training objectives can be used to inform key decisions about modes of engagement, use of a training partner, and tailoring of curriculum to match participant needs. Moreover, the training will describe strategies, techniques, and resources to manage and engage participants in their ‘virtual classroom’. The trainers will facilitate open discussion and answer questions to promote skill acquisition.
ZOOM 201 - Wednesday, May 26, 1:00-3:00 pm
Zoom 201: This training will introduce participants to intermediate and advanced Zoom functions and troubleshooting. Participants will also learn techniques and best practices to manage and engage Zoom participants in their virtual training sessions as well as practice how to implement these changes into their current curriculum. Moreover, the training will dive deep into implementation strategies for translating their previously in-person curriculum to a virtual platform.
ABOUT THESE EVENTS: This event was developed in response to a need identified by the New England (Region 1) ATTC and PTTC through the quarterly COVID surveys to provide professionals in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont training to utilize virtual platforms to conduct training, education and events to conduct prevention work.
