I created this handout on Facilitation Methods to highlight some of the most popular techniques, along with a brief explanation of each method.
A key to using these successfully is matching the method to your goal for that part of your training – are you looking to get folks to share their knowledge on a topic or brainstorm ideas or come to an agreement? Different methods serve different goals, so give some thought to which method best serves your goals. Practice and experiment with the methods to increase your proficiency and learn about what works.
Also included below is the slide deck from the 2017 Nonprofit Technology Conference session Supercharge Your Technology Training, where the handout was originally used.
