Collaboration Tools: Microsoft Teams - Virtual Train the Trainer (Live Online using MS Teams) new (1 of 3) [Places] 09:00 - 10:00 UIS Online Microsoft Teams 4

Are you new to teaching online? It is natural to feel apprehensive of this mode of delivery, virtual training has an additional skill set to those in a classroom based situation, and though your existing training skills remain essential, there is another layer of technical expertise to master.

This online virtual workshop will help build your confidence delivering training sessions and give you an opportunity to practice and to receive feedback from other trainers. The emphasis of the course is not about the method and practice of teaching as an academic subject or theoretical concept, this is a hands-on workshop where you can practice in a safe environment.

Before the workshop session, you must create an activity or convert one of your existing courses to an online version, and be prepared to present a 15-20 minute session. You will need to demonstrate that you have thought through and manged the pre-course bookings, communications and activities as well as competence using an online delivery tool.

The workshop will be friendly and supportive with a maximum of three participants. You must have Teams installed on your computer to participate.

  • Session 1 is optional for those who are unfamiliar with the Teams application to receive basic hands on training.
  • Session 2 is guidance concerning the management of a successful online training event.
  • Session 3 is the peer-reviewed workshop, you will both teach a session and review the other instructors.

Though this is an informal training session you may like to review the competences required to achieve certification by CompTIA

  • You should have Teams installed on your local computer, but you could deliver your course using a different tool such as Zoom, but no instruction using different tools is given.
  • You will need a webcam and a mic.
  • Add the event to your calendar by following the link in your booking confirmation email and click Add to Calendar.

If you are in an institution that is managing their own Teams tenancy (CAMENT, JBS, medschl and some of the colleges) then you may not have access to the files or calendar used in the course. Please contact the instructor in advance to discuss this.
  • If you are using Hermes for your email you will not be able to create a meeting or Breakout Rooms.
