Eco-Facilitation: skills lab

This practical and creative day is structured to provide time for experimenting, receiving feedback and taking your practice somewhere new. It is an opportunity to focus on ideas you wish to develop, to hone specific skills and to lean into your own learning edges.

With group, pair and solo work, the day will include: 

  • Sharing interests and live issues
  • ‘Sketching’ and trialing ideas
  • Insights from different approaches to facilitation
  • Insights into improving the design of courses or sessions
  • Practices to deepen your presence and resilience as a facilitator
  • Peer and trainer feedback
  • Support with challenging situations

 

This training is for those who have done the Wildwise course Eco-Facilitation: skills for experiential environmental education and those with experience in related facilitation who want to experiment and find new directions.

Come ready to take risks, ask questions and get in to the nitty-gritty of facilitation!
