Turning Social Workers into Web Conferencing Technical Experts via an Intensive Online Institute: The Institute on Technical Skills for Online Event Production

Folk, Krystal; Garay, Kristin; Marquart, Matthea S.

Columbia University School of Social Work’s Institute on Technical Skills for Online Event Production trains social workers to become excellent virtual event producers. Participants learn how to run interactive and engaging virtual events using web conferencing technology, which is applicable to work in agencies that want to maximize their social impact by creating innovative approaches for training and meeting with clients, stakeholders, and staff virtually. Launched in 2017, the Institute is designed to be highly interactive, practical, and hands-on, with many skill-building exercises both during the class sessions and assigned as homework. In 2020, it was honored by the International E-Learning Association with an International E-Learning Award in their Academic Division, Blended Learning Category.

This poster presentation was for an asynchronous virtual poster session at the UPCEA (University Professional & Continuing Education Association) Mid-Atlantic Regional Conference. During the conference, the presentation included embedded audio on each slide; that audio may be available to UPCEA members in the UPCEA archives.
