Application for the training “New normal – virtual conferencing toolbox”  is open now!

Would you like to make virtual conferencing and meetings more powerful and interactive?   Do you know exactly how to plan and manage online events?   Do you lack focus and self-direction into remote and hybrid learning?   Would you like to discover how to overcome communication obstacles and shyness?

If you answered “yes” to any of the above questions, online training on virtual tools for online meetings and collaboration is for you!

Video conferencing can be exhausting, even for highly engaged participants during an in-person session. WBAA project “Build Strong Relationships Regionally – Virtual Toolbox for Making Virtual Conferencing and Meetings More Powerful and Interactive” and series of online trainingsNew normal – virtual conferencing toolbox” have an aim to provide adequate skillsets and modern tools for young people (18-35 years) from the Western Balkan countries (B&H, Montenegro and Serbia) on how virtual events can be a blast.

Online trainings will consist of lectures, workshops and Q&A sessions and will ensure successful guidance of the transition from “normal” to “new normal” and “post-new normal” in the year of pandemic. The lectures and workshops together with adequate supporting materials will showcase to the WBAA participants how to create highly interactive, dynamic, well-organised and well-attended online events, and finally last but not less important, how to overcome shyness and how to speak better online. All participants will experience group work for implementation and practical presentation of key learnings. After all modules, participants will receive an e-brochure with the key learning points from lectures and workshops as well as with use-case based check-list for participants’ future events & projects as the outcome on which participants can build on their future projects.

Some of the topics will be how to have participants/students engaged, how to use e-games, mind maps, quizzes, how to improve speaking and presentational skills and how to organize and promote online events.

This educational project will be conducted by highly skilled professional trainers with proven experience in EU educational projects, on-line education, and corporate communication Marija Stevuljevic, M. A. and Ivana Jovanovic, PhD candidate.
