I'm a high energy facilitation geek who loves to use phrases like, "pedagogical choices". I explore how instructional design functions, and the role of the "facili-trainer" in our learning spaces.
I am a facilitator, instructional designer, and consultant on organization learning and inquiry based instruction. I use a lot of Liberating Structures, neuroscience research, and growth mindset in my approach to training and facilitation.
I especially LOVE asking, "How is participation distributed?" and, "What can we STOP doing to make room for innovation?" :-) .
What I Do.
Facilitation, instructional design, board retreats, facilitator training and consulting for individuals, organizations and communities.
...create strong and enduring initiatives
...teach you how to design and facilitate powerful meetings and trainings yourself
...reinvigorate workplace learning culture
...design powerful large and small group learning events and meetings
How I Do It.
Brain Based: I incorporate the latest neuroscience research into meeting and learning designs
Design Thinking: The Stanford model of Design Thinking greatly influences my thinking. I can teach and apply these methods.
Adult Learning: I know and apply the core principles of adult orientations towards learning and help to develop metacognitive and growth mindset awareness in everybody I work with.
