Event Date & Time
- May 24, 2019
1:00 pm – 2:30 pm
Pillar: Transformative Learning
Conventional structures such as presentations, lectures, status reports and managed discussions tend to be over-controlling and stifle inclusion and engagement.
Liberating Structures are a series of group processes designed to engage and include everyone in productively moving forward in a variety of contexts, whether it’s the meeting room or the classroom. In this workshop, you will get an introduction to what Liberating Structures are and experience a variety of these facilitation techniques specifically relevant to the Higher Education context. Activities in the classroom context will include quick and easy ways to engage students throughout a lecture, as well as longer student group work activities for facilitating more critical thinking and deeper discussion.
