Designing learning systems is both a science and an art. This learning experience is developed to foster both practical learning theory and giving you opportunities to experiment with the art of designing and delivering educational experiences. We are ready to grow and experiment right along with you.
What keeps classroom life alive and exciting for us is adding our own imagination and feedback from students, to continuously update our practice as facilitators of leading edge learning so that every single course we teach is unique and fresh. This course is no exception, because we believe you will co-create it with us in your own unique style, thus contributing to a valuable learning experience – for each of us! We are really looking forward to spending this time together!
Facilitation is a deeply personal process. How an idea reads in a book or how someone else presents it and how you apply it can be three distinct worlds…and that is very appropriate. What current brain research says is that much like the snow flake principle, no two brains are alike and how they receive, process, store and then use information is distinctly unique to each of our brains.
Facilitation skills and setting up curriculum require high level brain function. No book or fellow facilitator can give you a recipe to facilitate that is guaranteed to work for you or for the individual participants. That secret formula can only be created by you and your brain. Then offered and accepted by your learners.
This course is facilitated by International Coach Federation Accredited professionals who are exceptional coaches and facilitators.

Reviews From Past Participants
I have the confidence and awareness needed to take my facilitation to the next level. Adding on what I’ve gained from the Coaching courses, I feel like my toolbox is growing nicely.
Brian Kerr, Vice President of Enrolment at Trinity Western University
It was wonderful to be armed with a practical and accessible tool kit to take to my next facilitation. I was able to do a last minute co-facilitation the next morning after the course ended and use many of the skills learned!
It was very valuable to be reminded that we as facilitators don’t need to ‘prove our worth’ but simply guide a process that enables the room to learn from each other.
