Facilitated by Javiera Benavente and Alina Ortiz Salvatierra
In this course, we will learn about various approaches and methods for facilitating group process, shared learning, and collaborative actions that effect and create change in the wider world. We will explore how group facilitation can be used as a tool for cultivating connections and relationships, building and strengthening communities, and engaging students in organizing and change-making both on and off campus. The classroom will be a site practice, reflection, learning exchange. We will create a collective learning community that values each member as a teacher and learner. Participants will have the space and support to share what they know, learn new skills and practice, practice, practice! Students will be encouraged to take what they learn and practice back to the group’s, projects, communities and movements they are involved with both on and off campus.
