Zoomergisers - how to keep everyone engaged and energised during online classes/sessions
We are experiencing an unprecedented period and scale of virtual interactions in the form of online staff meetings, professional development webinars, classroom teaching etc.
While there have been very many positive outcomes for so many, these virtual sessions can also be extremely hard on us both physically and mentally and many of us experience ‘online fatigue’ or ‘Zoom fatigue’ as it’s now being called!
This online hands-on and interactive session will take participants through a series of fun and engaging activity based energisers that require no prior set up. They are quick activities that can be used as and when needed during online sessions with students and staff. They are useful when participants need energising and a bit of a fun perk up to help to support concentration and engagement.
The energisers are very flexible and while each is designed as a stand-alone activity to increase engagement and energy levels during classes or meetings, they can also be put together as a string of activities to form part of an end of term/year online event, induction day, staff or student party etc.
During this professional development session, participants will be invited to participate in an active way. It will be helpful to have cameras on for some parts of the session but it’s up to individuals to choose. We will be using the Zoom platform.
