Make the shift from teaching to Learning Facilitation. This course explores how to make the leap from conventional teaching approaches to a new perspective based on the learner and incorporating facilitation skills and philosophy into the learning environment.
Are you ready to learn the specific skills and tools needed to catapult your participants to a higher level of engaged and passionate learning?
- Are you stumped when it comes to engaging the people in your trainings?
- Are you wondering why your participants don’t want to get involved?
- Are you tired of trying to teach those who don’t want to learn?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you’re not alone! Delivering your message in a way that truly engages participants and leads to optimal learning is one of the biggest challenges faced by group facilitators.
A key is to shift from being a ‘teacher’ to a ‘co-creator’, empowering the group to learn in ways you could not have planned. Adults don’t want to be ‘taught’ anymore. They got enough of that in school. Become a Learning Facilitator is a 5-hourTeleClass series designed to help you make the leap from conventional teaching to the skills, attitudes, and practices necessary to create and facilitate a learning environment.
I became inspired and awakened to a new possibility. It’s a possibility that instead of being a teacher, I discovered that I am very passionate about facilitating learning. This is what I am fundamentally all about, and I was turned on by the conversation, the facilitation, the tools and the community of learners that were present. –Annie Hammond, Life Coach–
