IAF England and Wales have started up a podcast on matters facilitative. I have the honour of appearing briefly on the third episode, talking about my journey in virtual facilitation https://www.listennotes.com/podcasts/facilitation-stories/fs17-how-facilitators-are-McbSB9T_5zA/
Last year, I was commissioned, via Intrac, to design a micro (10 minute) qualitative data analysis course for Disasterready.org (providing free online courses for humanitarian and international development professionals). 126 satisfied reviews so far! The Arabic translation has just launched: this gives me the incentive to dust off my أَلْأَبْجَدِيَّة ٱلْعَرَبِيَّة and have a go at deciphering my own words!

While we are getting our intensive course up and running, we’re offering a 90 minute introduction to virtual facilitation. It’s selling out fast!
I’ve been working in virtual facilitation for almost a decade, but current circumstances have pushed me to share some material from my short and long virtual facilitation training courses. I’ve shared some tips in some guest blog for ICA:UK – see the first one here. Thanks to email@example.com for the images.
Applications are now open for INTRAC‘s next Online Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning course. This distinctive course, which always gets positive feedback from participants, involves one to one mentoring, individual feedback on assignments, and a curated discussion forum, as well as engaging and highly participatory real time online sessions. Alison Carney and myself, the trainers, always enjoy this animated and highly personalised course.
Avoid this, by learning how to design and facilitate engaging, inclusive and productive online workshops. The long standing online training in virtual facilitation, on which Orla has been collaborating for the past 5 years, starts again on 16th January, and there is *one* seat left. The course runs remotely, on 8 consecutive Thursdays, at 15:00 UTC/GMT. Bespoke/in house training on your preferred conferencing platform is also available: contact firstname.lastname@example.org With thanks to Chris Lysy for the cartoon.
Do you want to help groups to have constructive conversations? Would you like meetings to be more participatory, collaborative and creative? How can we ensure that groups define and meet their objectives, with no-one left behind? Come to the Group Facilitation Methods course (4th-5th December 2019) in Manchester. Suitable for both novice and experienced facilitators. Trainer: Orla Cronin. Booking link here
My colleague Miriam O’Donoghue and I are running a Group Facilitation Methods course with ICA:UK in Dublin on 1st-2nd October – some places still available. The details are here: https://www.ica-uk.org.uk/index.php?option=com_civicrm&task=civicrm/event/info&reset=1&id=207
