Facilitation is complex process intended to impart knowledge and understanding. Good facilitators need to know how to read a target audience and plan their facilitation approach accordingly. They also need to design suitable activities and manage classroom dynamics.
Traditionally facilitation has taken place in a bricks and mortar classroom, but increasingly facilitators are required to conduct training online using a variety of methods and platforms.
