for humans and (non-profit) organizations
Online CAN be Good
In 2020 online events and activities got to be something more than just a poor substitute for offline meetings. For personal but most of all for professional usage, everything online got to be indispensable. Many people for the first time took part in an online meeting, webinar or a conference. The world, even with social distancing, got to be a bit smaller, when suddenly everybody could take part in online workshops.
But just how we suffer from bad offline meetings and conferences, we also can recognize that if something was bad offline, for sure it will be also bad online, with additional technical and zoom fatigue difficulties as the digital cherries on top.
As an independent consultant I collaborate with organizations, supporting them in implementing online activities in their programs. In times of covid, I have been acting often as emergency help, translating events from offline to online.
For over 10 years I have been using the online for education purposes in my professional activities. In 2010, working as a project coordinator for Citizens Network Watchdog Poland, I created the first e-learning course for Polish local watchdogs and its more expanded version in the blended School For Watchdogs course. Later, when working with TechSoup Europe we constantly mixed online and offline activities for capacity building projects for activists.

About the online on the Blog
We’ve been working together only for 2 years but it’s already impossible to imagine doing MEGAPHONE [conference for activists from CEE and Central Asia] without Anna. Her knowledge and skills when it comes to coaching and training are invaluable but also passion, genuine interest and enthusiasm for the work we do within the civil society is unparalleled. I have no doubt that thanks to her work with session leaders our events meet and exceed expectations of the participants (92% agreed and 89% declared that the event was useful or very useful in their daily work).
Not to mention that it’s just fun to work with her.
