How we can assist you to keep going 

We offer advice and practical support to make your online meetings effective and interactive. We offer solutions for the design and delivery of your online training, will work with you or your colleagues to develop your skills. 

  1. You want to host an effective online meeting or workshop...
    Want to bring your team together for a strategic planning workshop, a team re treat, or a brainstorming session? From a twohour brainstorming session to multiple online sessions in which you develop your strategy, all can be done online! We think along about online tools to use, and how to ensure active participation so people feel comfortable to speak out. We have extensive experience with facilitating meetings while using a diverse set of online meeting software – Skype, Zoom, Kaltura, Microsoft Teams, Jitsi, Adobe Connect – we can think along on how to best set-up an effective meeting. We’ll use attractive visuals, interactive methods (think of polls, online whiteboards etc.) and ensure smooth (technical) facilitation along the process. By using tools like virtual whiteboards and breakout groups, we “recreate” the workshop room and make sure that (larger) groups can collaborate and create together.
     
  2. You want to have an online evaluation...
    Do you want to collect data remotely or do you wonder how to make sense of the data that was collected without physically bringing people together? We have the solution. Besides our extensive experience in working remotely with an international team of evaluators connected through online means, we also apply a set of  online data collection tools, as well as organise interactive sense-making workshops that focus on joint learning within your organisation. This offers you the opportunity to conduct sound evaluations without physically bringing people together. We transform your evaluation process to one that works online.

    We have recently extended our data collection tools that allow collection of quantitative and qualitative data in online and offline settings. At the end of your evaluation, you want your staff and other stakeholders to recognise the findings and, ultimately, use them to improve current or future project or programmes. For this, we set-up and facilitate online sense-making workshops. Whether it’s a two-hour session or multiple online sessions, we ensure joint reflection and learning.
     

  3. You want to organise an online training...
    Instead of spending a fixed number of days in a classroom, online tr ainings allow for remote learning and more flexible time schedules. We combine self-paced with group-paced learning. We do this using our own learning platform – MDF’s Learning Management System Moodle – where we offer a se t of interactive, facilitated
    online courses that include individual and group activities. In addition, we design and ho st virtual classrooms or individual coaching sessions. 

    Want to use your organisation’s online learning platform? That’s possible too! We have extensive experience in codesigning online learning content. We aim for extended learning trajectories that address the diverse set of needs of the learner s, ultimately, to create a las ting learning effect.
