Facilitation Training

5:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Event Type:
Location Details:

Dialogue facilitation is an essential skill for organizers, teachers, or anyone else who leads groups. Good facilitation can mean the difference between an uninspired, hostile, or unproductive group, and one that effectively and joyfully pursues meaningful goals in a supportive environment. In this 2-hour session, you will learn practical techniques for fostering four key types of thinking in your facilitation: supportive thinking, focused thinking, creative thinking, and critical thinking. This will be a hands-on session where participants will try out the techniques they are learning and see how they work in action.
When: Saturday, April 3rd at 5:00pm PDT
Where: Online via Zoom
Meeting ID: 882 2458 0053
