“Coaching in a virtual world presents an opportunity to enhance system and personal competency in a safe, collaborative, interactive format. It offers aspiring GPA coaches the opportunity to embrace technology as a means to an end. The use of virtual Ice Breakers, Gallery View conversations/demos/chat room group interaction, Menti & poll questions, website resources (e.g. ALPs), fillable documents, etc. — all of these make the GPA learning engaging and innovative. It becomes a collaboration “with” the learners instead of “to” the learners.”
— Bob Spicer, GPA Master Coach, Psychogeriatric Resource Consultant, North Bay Regional Health Centre, ON speaking about virtual GPA Certified Coach Workshops.
