The world has gone virtual, and it will never go back. Online mediations and facilitations open up new ways for people to participate — but also pose new technical challenges for practitioners.

Combining a watch-ahead instructional video with a live virtual practice session on Nov. 30, this class provides both

  • Practical information about Zoom video conferencing features that are necessary in mediation and facilitation, and
  • The confidence boost of practicing those skills in a supervised setting.

Zoom features covered by the class include tools specific for Mediation & Facilitation:

  • Host and co-host controls
  • Renaming & muting participants
  • Screen sharing
  • Breakout rooms
  • Annotation tools
  • Remote control
  • Setting up the Zoom screen to allow simultaneous private viewing of documents by the mediator/facilitator

While virtual meetings will never fully replace in-person meetings, it’s important that practitioners know how to handle both. This class puts those tools in your toolbelt.

Note: This class does not provide instruction on becoming a meditator or facilitator. If you have signed up for the Center’s 42-Hour Basic Mediation Training in December 2021, this class is included in your registration. Any Mediators or Facilitators that have attended training from Jan 2021-November 2021 are exempt from costs and can participate. 42-Hour Basic Mediation, previous Mediator & Facilitator (see dates above) students should indicate intent to attend and dates they attended their trainings by contacting center@ourfamilyservices.org Attn: Zoom for Mediators and Facilitators.
