In facilitated processes the factual and the emotional relationship level are equally important. A professional facilitator must be able to shape both levels simultaneously and evenly to create a constructive and open-minded atmosphere in working groups. The focus of this training course is on the „how“ - giving the participants concrete suggestions for practical use.9:00 - 17:00 (20) Veranstalter: Seminar für Ländliche Entwicklung (SLE) Themen:Sonstiges,WirtschaftFormat:Online-Seminar/Workshop

What does live online training mean?

Our online trainings are not pre-recorded training videos, webinars for large audiences or self-paced e-learning courses. They are virtual live trainings
delivered by our trainers in real-time, focusing on the interaction of a
small group of remote participants. Just like our face-to-face
trainings, these virtual classrooms aim at tailoring the discussions and
learning experiences to the training needs of the participants.

to attend our live online trainings, a reliable high-speed internet
connection and a computer or laptop running Windows or iOS are required
(including audio and video). The Humboldt-Universität of Berlin uses the
videoconferencing platform Zoom for virtual classrooms as well as
digital tools such as Moodle. We strongly recommend an external headset
for better sound quality.

Course Methods

The focus of the course
is on practical exercises. The participants are invited to practise
facilitation and to experience themselves in the role of a facilitator.

virtual classroom sessions with the trainers and the fellow
participants via Zoom will be complemented by group exercises,
assignments as well as time for self-study and reflection. The
participants will be provided with techniques in order to be able to
conduct a meeting of session as facilitator.

Target Group
Participants should be familiar with basic communication skills such as active listening and constructive communication.
