Facilitation skills are a must, if you want to change the world!

Debating an idea is never an easy task: we should keep track of all our arguments, pay attention to the other one and their ideas, and also it is very important to not let things escalate. Fortunately, facilitators exist and they make every group discussion easier. 

 

 

PhD Ellen M. Knutson, Research Associate at Kettering Foundation & Adjunct Assistant Professor at iSchool, University of Illinois, have met us online in order to introduce us to the wonderful world of facilitation. Thanks to her, now it is way easier to approach a discussion and to get ready for our project activities!
