What do you do when not every workshop participant is in the room?

You turn to technology!

Working with ‘remote’ participants is both a challenge and an opportunity. I’m learning how to get the most of these sessions and to provide better experiences for people ‘dialling in’.

The vast majority of the time people think of inputs into a workshop, they’re thinking a PowerPoint on a screen, and a presenter speaking to the content, aka ‘Death by PowerPoint’. The good news, is doesn’t have to be that way! By thinking about what your participants will do with the information you can open up a range of possibilities about how you’ll use that input.

Remember being a kid and spending your days playing? By the time we reach adulthood we divide our lives into times we can play and times we must work. Is that the right thing for us to do? We know that kids use play to learn – but what role can play have for adults?
