WABI interviews Grant about virtual facilitation workshop series

WABI (Channel 5) talked with Kristen Grant, a University of Maine Sea Grant professional, about a new workshop series designed to build virtual facilitation skills 10:30 a.m.–noon Nov. 17 and Dec. 1. Participants will learn fundamental concepts and strategies for applying them in virtual meetings as well as techniques for brainstorming, prioritizing and decision making. “Because the training will deal with really essential facilitation skills whether you’re in person or online, I think that it’s applicable for our immediate needs as well as any time in the future,” said Grant. More information about the workshop series, which is co-sponsored by University of New Hampshire Cooperative Extension and Maine Sea Grant, is online. Centralmaine.com, the Bangor Daily News and the Penobscot Bay Pilot also promoted the workshop series.
