What is a live, virtual workshop?

This program is not a bunch of recorded videos – it’s quite the opposite. The ‘live virtual’ workshops will replicate face-to-face sessions, as if we were together in the same room. We will be dynamic, using break-out rooms, real-time polls, and interactive activities.

"UPEACE creates a dynamic and stimulating online experience. The use of breakout rooms allowed me to have small group exercises with other participants, just as we would do in a normal classroom setting. In just an hour’s session, I was able to truly connect with the group, while learning a practical framework"
