Facilitator Series - Facilitations to Maximize Learner Engagement

Professional Growth Opportunities

This day will move beyond a foundational understanding of planning professional learning. Facilitators will learn to use technology and other thinking devices, including questioning to encourage critical thinking, as well as stories, pictures and other media as metaphors to extend thinking. Understanding and implementing culturally responsive pedagogy will also be included.

A quality facilitator:

  • Utilizes media and technology to engage learners.
  • Is able to use stories, pictures and other media as metaphors to extend learner thinking.
  • Asks thought-provoking questions to cause reflection and growth.
  • Embodies culturally responsive pedagogy within facilitations and coaching.

Participants will:

  • Reflect on powerful professional learning practices.
  • Determine facilitator actions that create a sense of community.
  • Investigate media that enhances adult learner engagement.

Audience: Professional learning leaders and facilitators
