Facilitating Groups Online.  
This synchronous workshop is part of the Mentorship Foundations training which prepares students to serve as a mentor or peer advisor in a peer support role. Facilitating Groups Online will begin by outlining some of the numerous components that are necessary to consider when setting up an online space. To explore this topic further, a plethora of engagement and facilitation techniques will be introduced followed by the opportunity to review some scenarios that may take place when facilitating online.
