      Online facilitation is an evolving and expanding opportunity to
      support groups to work, learn and connect across time and distance. Online
      work and interactions require facilitation skills beyond those used in
      face-to-face meetings. Group dynamics in the virtual environment combined
      with new communication technologies create unique conditions and
      opportunities calling for specific techniques and an expansion of our
      consciousness with mindful facilitation.

      design and facilitation of online group interactions. We will explore
      concepts through key readings, discuss theory, reflect in personal learning
      logs, and practice technique.
