Who These Virtual Workshops Are For:
CarePortal U Workshops are considered a mid to late-stage element of the onboarding journey for local network leaders.
|Should Attend CarePortal U Workshop||Should Not Attend CarePortal U Workshop|
What You Should Expect:
CarePortal U Virtual Workshops are designed to go deep into features and strategies that help you lead your network with excellence through the CarePortal platform. The activities and sessions planned are a mix of information, collaboration, and hands-on practice, covering both technology and ministry topics.
Each day, we will meet via Zoom for three hours. You'll be asked to complete some light preparation work ahead of the workshop and will be mailed a care package if you register at least seven days before your workshop dates. Some additional follow-up work is provided as well (see below).
The week after your workshop, you'll have the chance to come back for a 1-hour, open-format "Reunion" meeting to collaborate deeper with the other network leaders you met and ask more specific questions of the Training Team.
Note: Because this workshop goes deep very quickly, it is most effective if attended after you've completed at least most of the CarePortal U Proficiency Training Tasks prepared for your role (Ambassador, Regional Manager, Area Director).
Before Your Workshop:
Two things to be focusing on as we get closer to your Workshop dates:
- Begin/Continue Working Through Your Proficiency Training Tasks
If you haven't already finished your proficiency training, this will give you the benefit of understanding the basic functions and features of CarePortal so we can get right to the deeper strategies and tactics of being an implementer in your local network. Head to the Training & Resources tab in your dashboard to get started!
- Identify What You Need From CarePortal U
Please download this document and identify what you personally need the most and expect to gain from CarePortal U (the top section of the document). Save this to your computer and hang onto it because we'll ask you to share these topics at the beginning of our time together.
Next Steps After Your Workshop:
Two quick requests we have for you to close out CarePortal U:
- Finish the Rest of the "What Do You Need?" Document
Send the finished Microsoft Word document to firstname.lastname@example.org so we know how to continue supporting you and making sure CarePortal U continues to meet the needs of leaders like you. Feel free to copy any relevant supervisors on this email.
- Come Back for the Reunion Meeting!
This is a simple, less-structured 1-hour meeting you'll be invited to at the same time as the original workshop days. The goal is to give participants a chance to come back for a more open-dialogue and general Q&A.
- Create a Field Order for Your Network
These documents are intended to be a strategic planning tool for local CarePortal network leaders, allowing them to identify specific problems and proposing measurable, specific solutions. Field Orders are meant to be kept internal and used by implementing partners as they work together as a team to meet the specific needs of their community. Direct supervisors can also use the Field Orders created by their team members to provide accountability and actionable support that focuses time and energy to the projects and goals that would make the greatest impact.
Please send this document to your direct supervisor and use it to set expectations and communicate with a common language.
Note: if you are employed by The Global Orphan Project, a Field Order is required. For other leaders, this is not required but highly recommended.
