GROUPWORKS DECK: A PATTERN LANGUAGE FOR GROUP PROCESS
BAY AREA METHOD-MAPPING WORKSHOP
Do you regularly lead small groups at work or in your community life?
Do you use or know about specific methods, such as Dynamic Facilitation, Scenario Planning, Appreciative Inquiry, Open Space, or others?
Does the idea of having creating a shared vocabulary for healthy thriving group dynamics appeal to you?
Friday Feb. 22, join us in using the Group Works Deck to "map" out group tools and methods using the 91 patterns in the deck (and new ones you can create).
If you're new to facilitation or haven't experienced the Group Works Deck yet, please come to the larger open event on Saturday Feb. 23, also in Berkeley.
The first Method-Mapping workshop was held in Seattle last fall, as part of the National Coalition on Dialog and Deliberation's (NCDD) 2012 Conference. EBCOHO is hosting the 2nd Method Mapping session for the Bay Area. Lead facilitator will be OD Professor at Antioch University: Sue Woehrlin, assisted as needed by Kate Sassoon (of Berkeley-based Sassy Facilitation) & Tree Bressen (founder of the Group Works Project, from Eugene, Oregon).
