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.
This course looks at how STRUCTURE can be used to develop sessions which are more engaging and effective for any audience.
This course looks at how we can use voice, movement and timing to adjust our relative status and develop PRESENCE.
(Between sessions 2 and 3 you will be given a group task which you will complete in small, self-organised learning pods.)
This course looks at how facilitators’ choices in action can support co-creative FLOW, even when the unexpected occurs.
“I was surprised by how much fun the format was. I have done exciting workshops in person, but not a real online meeting that was as fun. This was new to me.”
