This TC is focused on improving the visual and verbal communication skills of youth workers. The competences they will develop during this course will help them to better engage with audiences of young people during training sessions and presentations.
‘Graphic Facilitation for Better Communication’ is a solution to the problem, “Youth workers lack the visual methods to capture and hold the attention of young people during training sessions and presentations.”
In order to solve this problem, we will work together as a group to achieve following objectives:
1. Improve our knowledge of the types of communication, learning styles and education (formal, non-formal and informal).
2. Understand and improve our graphic facilitation skills and be more open to the use of visual methods during our youth work.
3. Develop attitudes of acceptance towards disadvantaged groups, develop the ability to work in varied groups of young people and to adapt to changing work situations.
At the end of ‘Graphic Facilitation for Better Communication’ the 24 participants will make a video to show how basic graphics such as tables, charts, graphs and illustrations can be made more interesting to facilitate better communication. The participants will also contribute to a blog that will promote these ideas.
• To introduce graphic facilitation as a tool in the field of youth;
• To break the myth that you need to be “an artist” to do this;
• To explore some of the main types of graphic facilitation including drawings, mind mapping, reporting through illustration, etc.
Supporting the competence development of trainers is an important aspect to ensure the high quality of youth worker trainings in Europe. The European Training Strategy therefore calls for the development of a modular system to train the trainers of youth workers by defining a set of essential competences that can be acquired in specific courses and serve to establish a pool of certified trainers in Europe.
