  • Overview of the whole program
    Find out who is going where eg simulation etc - do this in action, go through each day

  • Some of the theory underpinning
    - confident facilitation
    - transfer of learning
  • Four main tools that you can use when you are working with groups

    - group discussion that you lead
    - how to make the most of brainstorming
    - group discussion called World Cafe
    - action method called Full Circle

  • Using Open Space - a day for you to explore with each other your experiences of transferring learning, what works etc

    Plan your project for the rest of the week
    - simulation
    - facilitating
    - debrief (last two days)

  • Simulation in Jakarta

    Rest of us will be staying here to further develop your facilitation skills and develop a program that you can take back and implement in your own office
  • Regroup in Jakarta for the simulation & training debriefs
  • Building a bridge between this workshop and what you will be doing back in your own offices

    On-going development plan

    Proof is in the pudding!
  • Re-cap overall program

  • About me - I’m a facilitator
    Tangle of butcher’s paper, pens and group ideas
    I’ll be demonstrating and modelling behaviours

  • Line up: BirthdayLine up: Total travel time to get to this workshop

    Map: Place you call home

    Chunk: Time working in current job
    - less than 12 months
    - 1 - 5 years
    - 6 - 10 years
    - more than 10 years
    Newbies pair up with old hands

  • There’s more to learning and being together as a community than these topics
    Shared experiences

  • Even telling people REALLY LOUDLY doesn’t work!

  • Break time - surely?

  • In groups of three, talk about something that you have learned (either recently or in the past) - a new skill or understanding. What were the conditions that enabled that learning to happen?

  • Explore this a bit further - line up according to your current skill as a juggler
    Form pairs

  • Keep track of your own learning - I’ll make time for you to write in it, and you can write in it whenever you like. Also, drawing, doodling etc is OK
    Based on what we have done so far this morning...
    What = new knowledge, info, skills, processes, activities - did I learn
    How = observing, doing etc - did I learn?

  • Anyone recognise these falls?
    Victoria Falls from Zambia
  • Who is surprised by knowledge being called a curse?
    Surely the more you know the better?
    Let’s explore...

  • It’s the WAY we share it that’s important
  • Unlike the man in the mountains - take baby steps
  • Don’t want to have to relearn the same lessons over and over - we want them to STICK

  • Improv games to explore interaction and learning
    Group Juggling and Pass the Zap!

  • Wave analysis - ways of interacting with each other
  • Wave analysis

  • Essence - what does capacity building mean for us?
