Tips from a Production Partner


6 TIPS to consider when facilitating online learning events and training, from a production partner. When we move our learning online there are some different aspects to consider and plan for. Of course the technology is a big difference from an in-person experience, and this may be why you are expanding your team to include production supports. Stay tuned for all the tips coming up in our posts. PLUS download your quick reference resource to improve the engagement level of your virtual learning events:


Did you know: You don’t have to do it all alone?



TIP ONE: Clarify a detailed timeline and plan for your online event’s support team is an important part of great communication.⁠


TIP TWO: Back-Up Plans! This is a big one! I even have a back-up computer, back-up internet options and just ordered something to boost my cell signal for my cell phone (data option). You may not be able to have those options but make sure you send links, passwords, phone numbers and options ahead of time! Have them ready to send to people last minute if they need it. Make sure your online support team has everything they need. #BackupPlans


TIP THREE: Breaks for your participants, speakers and your technical production support team are important for ‘bio breaks’ and for time to troubleshoot any issues.⁠


TIP FOUR: Have you ever felt that you were interrupting someone when you did not mean to online? There are delays which is why we cannot all sing together and sound good. Give a brief pause after someone else has spoken before you talk. This shows good listening and helps reducing ‘interrupting’. We are all learning in the context of online communication.⁠


TIP FIVE: Your Production Partner is looking after a lot of tech in the background. This could be setting-up your next breakout groups, answering private chats from your participants with tech issues, and a variety of other tasks.⁠ Consider adding details and enough time in your production list.⁠


TIP SIX: Flexibility is good, but stick to your timeline as much as possible, and communicate any changes in the moment. Your production partner or support team are working with the initial plan, while also paying attention the needs in the moment for your participants, & speakers.⁠
