The best educational experiences leave me feeling excited and a little bit nervous about what comes next. I felt both after a creative and challenging 2-day The Artful Facilitator workshop taught by graphic recorder Avril Orloff.
For me, artful facilitation is a combination of techniques that invite creativity into the room. We learned about preparing templates, agendas, and designing activities with images help participants engage to their fullest.
Here’s an example of Avril’s work, my sketchbook and part of our group project. Our case study needed to introduce creativity, and also keep the meeting on track because volunteers have busy lives. Thanks Avril for the great workshop!
