This week-long course includes an introductory workshop, individual practice, and detailed feedback.
Participants participate in a simulation exercise, analyze methodologies and techniques, and learn how to apply them in practice.
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.
The goal of this course is to help participants understand all the elements of facilitation for equality, so they can become change agents at work.
