My Event Moved Online,
Adapting Knowledge Exchange Activities for Virtual Platforms
By Anne Kott
Are you suddenly moving an event or working group meeting to a virtual platform? Wondering how to adapt the in-person, participatory agenda you spent so much time planning?
Knowledge exchange, or peer-to-peer learning, is a powerful way to share best practices, reflect on lessons learned, and encourage collaboration. Many people think of “knowledge exchange” as synonymous with “face-to-face.” But you can still create meaningful connections and engaging conversations even when face-time isn’t possible.
Watch these videos to learn how you can move knowledge exchange activities to a virtual space. These are excerpted from a Knowledge SUCCESS webinar hosted on April 16, 2020.
