Tips, tricks, and how-to’s
for virtual facilitation

You know just how to make your in-person workshop engaging and energetic. Ready to do the same thing online? Miro’s got you covered. Here are some effective thought-starters for how to use our built-in features and customizable templates to run virtual workshops your way.

Preparing your workshop

Set your board up

Choose one of our pre-built templates or start a board from scratch — then use frames and other features to customize your presentation. Be sure to structure your workshop with an introduction, an overview, and clearly defined goals.

Get your timing down

You know how important pacing is.
So make sure you know how many participants you’ll have, and how long you’ll need for each activity.
(Tip: Use our timer feature to box activities, and be sure to plan for
pauses and breaks.)

Do a few practice rounds

A dry run of your workshop is key, especially when you’re co-facilitating with a partner. It’ll help you feel confident in your delivery and even test out your technology (like breakout rooms) to make sure you get how it all works.

Running the show

Get the group engaged

At the start of your workshop, encourage everyone to turn on their video — then use one of our icebreakers to make introductions and get your guests ready. (Tip: Nothing loosens up the group like a little laughter.)

Grab and keep their attention

Use our attention management features, like Bring Everyone to Me, to guide your guests through every activity and make sure no one’s getting lost on the board (or losing focus after lunch).

Keep them involved all along

Plan interactive, inclusive activities — like voting and energizers — to engage the entire group. Use our hide/reveal frames feature to hold them at different points throughout your workshop.

Winding things down

Close on a positive note

Consider an exercise, like a retrospective, that summarizes the day’s workshop. Make sure it includes many voices, recaps the high points, and reiterates the key takeaways.

End with next steps

Miro makes it easy to turn all those insights and ideas into concrete tasks. Just convert the many stickies from your board into cards — simple assignment sheets that tell team members what to deliver, and by when.

Be on top of the follow-ups

Plan ahead anything you want your guests to keep from your workshop, like recap emails or any other helpful reference documents. You can even export your board and send it to them as a hi-res PDF or image.
