Event description

Description

Presenter: Dr Shirley Cooper, LDC Development Team

This half-day workshop will give you the opportunity to learn, practice, and enhance on your facilitation skills in a practical and fun environment, in which you will also gain experience in presenting a proposal at a group meeting.

The session will help you develop facilitation and meeting skills in a safe environment. We will discuss ways to ask good and engaging questions and to promote active listening. We will also outline technique to work with groups to summarise responses, synthesise different points of view and feedback key agreements and findings. Through a practical activity, you will have the opportunity to: present and defend a proposal to a group of colleagues; facilitate the discussion between colleagues and work to a set agenda and time and question others about their proposal.

Note: For this workshop we ask for a little pre-workshop preparation to prepare a short outline of a proposal for a half day workshop that would be of interest for your PGR colleagues in your research area. Your proposal is presented verbally. Further details will be sent in the pre-workshop email.

You are strongly recommended to attend the webinar, ‘Webinar: Introduction to Facilitation’ prior to your attendance at this workshop. This workshop is open to all and also contributes to the programme of workshops available for those applying for the Development Tutor Scheme.

This workshop offers opportunities to gain skills in Working with others and Communication and dissemination, as outlined in the RDF subdomains D1 and D2.
