Book Summary:

One of the most important shifts in schools in the last two decades has been the growing emphasis on collaboration among teachers and other educators. Whether you are a teacher facilitating a group for the first time or an experienced facilitator seeking to further develop your skills, this book is for you. Organized to be used as both an exploration of the role of facilitating and as a handbook of strategies, this resource covers a range of contexts that include faculty meetings, department meetings, professional learning communities, grade-level teams, and inquiry groups. This book is a perfect companion to the authors' bestseller, The Facilitator's Book of Questions, which focuses on the skills needed to facilitate protocols or structured conversations. Facilitating for Learning extends the scope of that work by also examining the facilitator's responsibilities for supporting a group's learning during all parts of a meeting, between meetings, and within the larger school context and culture. It is an essential resource for teachers, administrators, coaches, and teacher educators.

Book Summary:

Facilitating Collective and Social Learning is the essential text for any students studying Learning & Development (L&D) as part of undergraduate or postgraduate courses, and is the supporting text for the CIPD level 5 Unit 5CSL. It will develop your understanding of collective and social learning within the workplace by identifying and exploring what we mean by the terms 'collective' and 'social', explaining the use of collective over group, collaborative and co-operative learning, and consider the implications of this for L&D and HRD practitioners and their practice. The authors describe the emergent manifestations of collective and social learning within the workplace, and introduce and assess different theoretical models. You will explore the key current social media and e-learning tools, technologies and their applications for L&D, and how social media and e-learning tools can be employed to meet organisational learning objectives. Ideal for professionals looking to further their understanding of the field, you will learn how collective and social learning can support your organisation in achieving its L&D goals and wider business objectives. Easy to navigate and clearly written, Facilitating Collective and Social Learning will provide you with the solid grounding in the theory so that you can apply and benefit from it in practice.

Book Summary:

Most trainers rely on trial and error as the only means of improving facilitation skills. This definitive text furnishes a comprehensive framework for determining the best interventions to use in a given group situation. The trainer is presented with strategies for assisting the individual to establish an attainable goal, develop a strategy for change, and implement and evaluate that strategy during and following the life of the group. Both personal and professional development groups are addressed in the model. Most current literature describes how to design management training and human relations group. This text goes a step further by providing a framework for intervening on a moment-by-moment basis to ensure group goal achievement. Facilitating Training Groups provides clear descriptions of three primary models--T-groups, personal growth groups, and skills training groups. Their goals, theoretical underpinnings, and required leadership style are explored. The book focuses on what trainers say and do during the life of a group to facilitate the accomplishment of the goals of a particular model. Trainers learn a process for deciding what interventions to use in different circumstances and models. Practice exercises assist the reader in assimilating the material. This book is particularly relevant for those studying human resources, human resource training, psychology, sociology, and social work.

Praise for the Revised Edition of The Art of Facilitation "The Art of Facilitation picks up where most other books stop. It describes a whole new array of process tools in a totally accessible way. It delves into the underlying ethics of facilitation to clarify complex questions. This book is also beautifully written. After many years in the profession, I was surprised at the subtle way it helped me gain a new understanding of a number of important facilitation dilemmas. A very insightful contribution to the field!" —Ingrid Bens, M.Ed., facilitation tutor, Sarasota, Florida, and author of Facilitating with Ease, Advanced Facilitation Strategies, and Facilitating to Lead "Few books attempt such a broad scope and enriching view of group facilitation. Hunter provides a 'philosophy' of group facilitation, mixed with 'how to.' This is an impressive book, integrating a sincere concern for the reader's personal development." —Sandy Schuman, editor of The IAF Handbook of Group Facilitation "Dale Hunter is a giant among practitioners, one of the pioneers in the field, and The Art of Facilitation is a classic. This book distills Dale's years of experience into straightforward, practical advice. Her wisdom comes through in every chapter." —Sam Kaner, Ph.D., author of the international bestseller, Facilitator's Guide to Participatory Decision-Making "In The Art of Facilitation, Dale Hunter treats readers to an exploration of the field of facilitation at the same time she presents her unique approach. Throughout the book, in simple language, Hunter offers a powerful and important message—to facilitate others effectively you must facilitate yourself. Take Hunter's advice and your clients will thank you." —Roger Schwarz, author of The Skilled Facilitator and coauthor of The Skilled Facilitator Fieldbook
