The Art of Facilitating training – an interresting opportunity for youth workers to develop Experiential Learning facilitation in order to create and facilitate meaningful learning experiences for others using Experiential Learning as a tool.

This training course is based on non-formal education and experiential learning, being highly participatory and interactive. In the training you will be the creator of your own experience – the more you put into it, the more you will get out of it – guided by the facilitators and supported by the group. Your self-directed individual learning process will take place in a safe space and in a team-oriented and group-supported environment.

The flow of the program is inspired in the Kolb cycle of Experiential Learning: experience, reflection, conceptualization and applicability.

The Experiential Learning methods that we will use are along individual and group reflection and conceptualization processes are:

-Challenge-based learning: using challenges as learning opportunities

-Game-based learning: using games with a pedagogical purpose

-Body Expression and Movement: connecting with oneself and others in an embodied way

In “The Art of Facilitating” training you will have the chance to:

-Get familiar with the ETS Competence Model for Trainers and Facilitators developed by SALTO T&C RC

-Set your own learning objectives for the training and direct your learning towards it

-Experience embodied openness and vulnerability when standing in front of a group

-Identify and practice how to make your presentations more engaging and creative

-Distinguish between facts and assumptions in your communication

-Learn how to give and receive factual feedback

-Identify the elements of a game and learn how to gamify your workshops

-Connect with yourself and connect with others through your body in movement

-Identify your own principles to facilitate Experiential Learning

-Plan how to create your own Experiential Learning workshops and projects after the training

… and much more :)

This learning process is going to be facilitated by two experienced Salto trainers Bob Sonet and Jordan Herreros:
