The Art of Facilitating training – an interesting opportunity for youth workers to develop Experiential Learning facilitation in order to create and facilitate meaningful learning experiences for others using Experiential Learning as a tool.
This training course is based on non-formal education and experiential learning, being highly participatory and interactive. In the training you will be the creator of your own experience – the more you put into it, the more you will get out of it – guided by the facilitators and supported by the group.
Your self-directed individual learning process will take place in a safe space and in a team-oriented and group-supported environment.
The flow of the program is inspired in the Kolb cycle of Experiential Learning:
- and applicability
The Experiential Learning methods that we will use are along individual and group reflection and conceptualization processes are:
-Challenge-based learning: using challenges as learning opportunities
-Game-based learning: using games with a pedagogical purpose
-Body Expression and Movement: connecting with oneself and others in an embodied way
In “The Art of Facilitating” training you will have the chance to:
-Get familiar with the ETS Competence Model for Trainers and Facilitators developed by SALTO T&C RC
-Set your own learning objectives for the training and direct your learning towards it
-Experience embodied openness and vulnerability when standing in front of a group
-Identify and practice how to make your presentations more engaging and creative
-Distinguish between facts and assumptions in your communication
-Learn how to give and receive factual feedback
-Identify the elements of a game and learn how to gamify your workshops
-Connect with yourself and connect with others through your body in movement
-Identify your own principles to facilitate Experiential Learning
-Plan how to create your own Experiential Learning workshops and projects after the training
