JOIN OUR LAB TO BOOST YOUR FACILITATION SKILLS

 

JOIN A FACILITATHON

Do you host events or offer trainings? Are you a coach or facilitator?

Join our safe space for facilitators to improve your skills through peer to peer learning.

TOOLS

Do you want to get to the next level as a facilitator? The Facilitathon will give you hands- on trainings and access to lots of new methods and tools. 

INSIGHTS

Have you been wanting to be a participant in a training again and feel how certain tools impact you? Learn new approaches and techniques by being facilitated by others.

SPACE FOR PROTOTYPING

You have an activity that you have always wanted to try but it was too risky to do in a work context? This is your opportunity to experiment with an audience who will happily debrief it with you.

NEW CONTACTS

Exchange ideas with professional facilitators from very different fields and grow your network. Learn from and with them in an intensive weekend.

THE APPROACH

 The Facilitathon’s learning approach is mainly based on direct feedback, on participating in each other’s sessions and on sharing the “behind the scenes” tips and tricks. It’s not a top down workshop on what facilitation is or how you facilitate. It’s rather a safe space for facilitators to try, experiment and give each other useful and personal feedback.

TARGET GROUP

The Facilitathon has been designed for experienced facilitators who hardly have access to spaces where they can improve their skills. You should thus have some kind of experience of working with groups: hosting, coaching, training, moderating or facilitating. We are aiming at a diverse group of participants so do reach out if you’re not sure if this is for you.

Over the last 3 years, NOW has developed a new methodology to accompany participants in their individual learning. Learning Facilitation combines trends in education such as formative evaluation and the use of frameworks of competences with strong personal connections and community hosting in online spaces to enable personalised and self-driven learning of competences. Now, we are ready to share this methodology with you!

In early 2019, we are offering an online module on Learning Facilitation, combining an introduction to the methodology with best practises from our programs. Participants of the Facilitathon can attend the online module at a discounted price. Learn more about it here.
