Our Advanced Facilitation online course will leave you capable of independently developing your own design thinking workshops tailored to the needs of each project & audience. The course is taught across 4 sessions, with each building your knowledge of facilitation and allowing you to get practical experience & feedback from our experienced coaches.
The course focuses on workshop development, covering the broader aspects around how to scope, frame & design workshops tailored to your audiences & intended outcomes.
While not mandatory, you are highly encouraged to start your own facilitation project in parallel to the course. Your personal project can be self-initiated and small. If you decide to do so, this will allow you to apply the theory to your own context throughout our online facilitation training & will enable you to contribute more to the group conversations by sharing your own challenges and experiences.
