Design to engage : how to create and facilitate a great learning experience for any group / Beth Cougler Blom.


"Facilitators exist wherever learning happens. Anyone who works in a community organization, a corporation, a government, or a healthcare environment can end up leading a workshop, running a course, or otherwise facilitating others' learning. Facilitators can also be consultants or post-secondary instructors who have been hired to lead one course or more. However, many people haven't been trained in how to facilitate learning effectively. Design to Engage is a "how-to" book that will help you become an effective designer and facilitator of learning events. You will: Learn about facilitation roles and responsibilities; Discover what good learning experiences look like; Plan for and design effective learning events using practical, straightforward design strategies; Raise your awareness about to how to create inclusive, comfortable environments. Along with specific recommendations on developing the skills and strategies necessary to be an effective facilitator, you'll find priceless advice on creating participatory activities to keep learners involved, assessing participants' learning, gathering feedback about learning experiences, and how to grow your facilitation practice. The more engaging and interactive you make your learning events, the more people will actually learn from them."--Provided by publisher.
