- What do people mean when they say they facilitate?
- What do they actually do?
- What's it like for them to facilitate?
- What's it like to be facilitated by them?
- How does their practice compare with mine and what can I
learn from them?
This study took place at Brathay (Cumbria, UK) during 1998/9 as part of
Stuart's studies for MSc in Change Agent Strategies and Skills with the
University of Surrey, Human Potential Research Group.
"For practising facilitators these
questions, keenly pursued, can deepen your understanding of the
practice of facilitation and develop your own practice by
understanding and experiencing the practice of others."
