Facilitation Excellence: Building Virtual Capabilities at CPA Canada
Each year, CPA Canada engages a group of industry professionals who deliver their In-Depth Tax Program (IDTP) to hundreds of tax accountants, lawyers, and consultants. In 2020, CPA Canada partnered with Shift to upskill these subject matter experts and prepare them to facilitate impactful and engaging virtual training experiences. As of today, over 250 of the IDTP instructors have been certified through Shift’s Virtual Facilitation Excellence™ program. As an on-going investment in professional development, CPA Canada continues to offer Master Class sessions that deepen specific skillsets and introduce advanced techniques. For example, a “Written Feedback Guide” was developed and introduced for CPA Canada to improve the quality and consistency for how their instructors evaluate case study assignments.
