Learning to Facilitate (Online) Meetings

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedings

We describe an approach to teaching collaboration skills directly by building on
competences for meeting facilitation. (Online) meetings provide a rich arena to practice collaboration since they can serve multiple purposes: learning, problem solving, decision making, idea generation and advancement, etc.. We argue that facilitating meetings is a competence worth developing in students and describe the main knowledge and skill components that pertain to this competence. We then describe some implemented software tools that can be used in schools and colleges to provide opportunities for practicing and developing group facilitation skills.
