A key benefit of live workshops is the ability to pair people into small groups working at the same time with one another to explore ideas, problems, solutions, learning, and more. This approach not only allows groups to go deeper into collaborative possibilities, it also tends to build intimacy throughout the entire group as participants have one-on-one time with each other. Virtual environments don’t generally lend themselves to asynchronous activities like small group activities.
We’ve found a way to incorporate offline partner activities for online courses without the use of any special technology. Participants often comment that this is one of the most useful things they learn in our classes and are often surprised at how easy and effective these activities can be if you know how to set them up and run them.
