Facilitating Learning

Those working in learning environments sometimes find it hard to move from the role of leader to facilitator. Yet, providing opportunities for youth to take control of their own learning and providing opportunities for collaboration, team-building, problem-solving, critical thinking, decision making and reflection through strong facilitation is often the best way for them to learn.

    10 minute read
    Linda Braun says:
    It’s important for youth to reflect on their learning and think about what they want to know more about and/or what they want to go back to. You can learn how to be successful in helping in learning reflection in chapter 12 of Learning and Leading with Habits of Mind. The chapter covers the value of reflection, what makes a good reflection activity, and includes a variety examples of ways to bring reflection into learning for children and teens.

    This set of three videos gives you the opportunity to learn from teachers how they gained skills and comfort in integrating facilitated STEM learning experiences in their classroom. One of the really great aspects of this collection is the reflection materials included on the website so that before, during, and after viewing you can consider what you learned and what you want to work on.

    Mindful Facilitation: Don't Do Something, Just Stand There

    5 minute read
    Linda Braun says:
    A quick to read article that provides practical tips for giving youth the chance to take charge of their own learning. While these ideas may seem simple they can actually be hard to put into practice, so taking some time to pay attention to these “little things” can have a big payoff.
  • Linda Braun says:
    This video does an excellent job at demonstrating the process of facilitating learning among a group of math students. And, even though this is a math class, the facilitation skills of asking questions and giving youth the chance to collaborate and take charge of their own learning can be used in any curriculum area and in informal as well as formal learning environments. It’s a good place to start when thinking about what’s required to facilitate meaningful learning.

    Building curiosity, generating questions, and reflection are all key components of facilitated learning that are covered in this great overview video.
