Regular learning and networking opportunity for trained facilitators
This group is open to all trained facilitators, both those for which facilitation is just a component of their job; and those work as professional facilitators.
This Community of Practice has been set up by individuals who, after attending one or more Technology of Participation™ (ToP) Facilitative Leadership Program courses, wished to have a means through which to continue their professional development as facilitators in a collegial environment.
ToP is one suite of facilitation methodologies among many, and most facilitators use a variety of methods and tools: we welcome all trained facilitators.
Why this group?
The purpose of the Community of Practice is to provide trained facilitators with the opportunity to gather as a group (in person or via Zoom) for a hands-on learning opportunity. At each session, a practitioner shares a plan for an upcoming facilitation event; or debriefs something that have run that they wish to seek feedback on, and learn from with the help of fellow facilitators.
The Community of Practice follows this format:
1. A member of the group volunteers some work they wish to seek feedback on. They send their facilitation plan / brief commentary to attendees via email 4 days prior to the meeting;
