Facilitation is all about helping a group of people achieve their goal
or objectives and is the most effective way for adults to learn.
Facilitation requires a range of skills to stimulate thinking and
problem solving, challenge perceptions, utilise participant's
experiences, identify group dynamics and manage the group process and
interaction. It is challenging to learn, these skills but once you have
mastered them you will find it very rewarding and will notice a
significant improvement in the learning outcomes.
Our Art of Facilitation workshops are interactive, hands on and involve
practical group work to promote facilitation skill development.
Some of the things you will learn are:
What is the difference between teaching, training and facilitation?
The role of a facilitator
What makes someone a good facilitator
Adult learning principles
How to use questions to manage group dynamics, direction, time and
What to do when you have a challenging participant and how to turn
that challenge into a positive learning experience
The importance of setting up the room
Planning facilitation sessions
By the end of the program, participants will be able to plan and
facilitate effective sessions that maximise the learning outcomes,
positively engage their participants and make the sessions more
enjoyable for everyone.
