Facilitation skills

Facilitate conversations

Course overview

How best can we help our learners, turn information into their own knowledge? The purpose of the course is to answer this question and help you in your understanding of what it means to be effective in helping other people learn.

The question is not about delivering great teaching; it is about achieving the right learning results.
Moreover, teaching adults is not simply passing on the information and knowledge that we have but primarily about enabling and empowering them to excel in their own fields. This is the primary objective of the course, to enable you to be the trainer that makes a difference in the lives of your learners.

"The Facilitation skills course was fantastic! The mix of theory and practice was just right. The tone and atmosphere created a safe place to throw ourselves into the exercises and get the most out of them. I look forward to drawing on the resources from this course for years to come."
