Liberating Stuctures Meetup at BCIT – February 22nd 4:00 pm-5:30 pm – Registration Form

Purpose:

Come learn and experience Liberating Structures:

  • For newcomers: Introduce Liberating Structures as a way of engaging your students, colleagues, employees and team members in productive, purposeful, inclusive ways.
  • For experienced Liberating Structures facilitators: Explore ways to enhance your repertoire by learning new LS techniques and consider joining the Vancouver LS user group that meets frequently.

What are Liberating Structures?

“Liberating Structures (LS) are a growing collection of group processes and methods that make it easy and quick for members of any group to radically change how they interact and work together. Their purpose is to liberate energy, tap into collective intelligence, stimulate creativity, and get surprisingly better results by engaging people and unleashing the power of self-organization.”
