Workshop Content

Workshop Content

In the first 1.5 days you will participate in a sample workshop aimed at changing mind-sets concerning a particular group which experiences discrimination – i.e. people with disabilities.  You will then have a chance to analyse the methodologies and techniques used, and understand when and how to use them.  The last part of the workshop includes individual practice, detailed feedback and exploration of how to adapt methodologies and materials to suit varied circumstances and topics.

* As well as the group feedback after each practice facilitation session, participants can avail of the opportunity to receive more detailed one-to-one feedback from the programme leader.

Format and Methodology

Format and Methodology

In practice, the methodology you will learn is:

  • dynamic (challenging, and tailored to the needs and interests of each group of participants)
  • participative (experiential exercises, games, dramas and discussions form the main learning activities)
  • work-related (relevant to participants’ actual work and interests)
  • reflective (participants have the opportunity to think broadly about their work and its impact on marginalised people)
  • encouraging and supportive (facilitators create a working atmosphere which enables participants to speak openly, without fear of criticism)
  • creative and constructive engagement (focused on finding solutions which work)
  • contemporary (based on the latest ideas about creating equality of participation for marginalised people)
  • adaptable (can be re-arranged to suit different cultural environments, and different levels of education or kinds of background).

 

Facilitating for Equality respects participants as experts in their own fields, and so aims to build on their existing knowledge and skills. It works to stimulate competenceconfidence and commitment in participants, facilitating them to bring their own expertise to their learning about equality and inclusion. While introductory, it delivers practical advice which participants can implement immediately in their work and personal lives.
