Design for Sustainability
Facilitation for Empowerment
2 - 8 November, 2013
Pracha Hutanuwatr & Jane Rasbash
Facilitation for personal growth, spiritual enrichment and sustainable social action.
The aim of this week is to enable and support potential course leaders, facilitators, teachers and trainers interested in teaching EDE material to gain confidence and skills to work more effectively in ways that will empower themselves and those they work with.
The approach is to encourage participants to cultivate attitudes, clarify concepts and gain confidence in using participatory learning tools. Participants will ride a dynamic balance of meditation practice, experimenting with facilitation and clarifying principles by going through an holistic educational experience.
Participants inspired to: trust in participant-centred learning; value knowing oneself; practice self-cultivation for transformation of consciousness and nurture a deep self-confidence.
Participants gain skills for using participatory tools in facilitation: e.g. organising effective group sharing to draw lessons learned from experiences and activities; leading exercises, games, role-play and group challenges; council for consensus; preparing and designing workshops with feed back loop, etc.
Participants able to articulate concepts related to participatory facilitation e.g. the meaning of participation & participatory learning; indicators of successful participatory learning and related concepts; skills and attitudes; cycle of experiential learning; self-confidence; team learning/team teaching, fun and learning.
