Online Classroom


Facilitation Fundamentals is a three-part interactive course where you will learn what we believe are the fundamentals of facilitation in any given context – be it creative workshops, working meetings or training sessions. Although this course is taught online, the material is relevant to all facilitation contexts – in the physical and digital worlds.


Anyone facilitating workshops, meetings, training courses, events, or project sessions – for example in design thinking or service design projects – whether online or offline.

Session 1: STRUCTURE

This course looks at how STRUCTURE can be used to develop sessions which are more engaging and effective for any audience.

  • understand different co-creation preferences.
  • explore how these preferences can be used to design and STRUCTURE effective sessions which engage everyone - even people with very different working strengths (the PARC model)

Session 2: PRESENCE

This course looks at how we can use voice, movement and timing to adjust our relative status and develop PRESENCE.

  • understand the key concepts of relative status and PRESENCE
  • recognise your own natural presence "level"
  • learn how to adapt it to suit any situation and need
  • develop a personal action plan to increase your

(Between sessions 2 and 3 you will be given a group task which you will complete in small, self-organised learning pods.)

Session 3: FLOW

This course looks at how facilitators’ choices in action can support co-creative FLOW, even when the unexpected occurs.

  • understand the key concepts of FLOW in the context of co-creative sessions
  • understand how you can move between freedom and structure and understand their impact
  • know how to keep sessions moving effectively and achieve co-creative flow
  • remain confident in all situations
