Week 4 — Grow as a Facilitator

In the critical final phases of any creative learning activity, creative learning facilitators deftly guide workshop participants to share and reflect with a light touch, and themselves reflect on their own growth and learning as facilitators in the workshop. Delve into the mindset of seasoned creative learning facilitators and develop your own ongoing facilitation practice.
