The Facilitator Handbook
This Facilitator Handbook was developed as part of the Learning Circles in Libraries project, oriented at making adult learning more organized, interactive and fun. The purpose of this handbook is to help facilitators understand how people acquire knowledge through self-learning, as well as how they learn from others, so that they could subsequently train facilitators in running their own Learning Circles. This manual will guide you at every step of the process.
Facilitating Learning Circles – Facilitator Handbook is composed of 4 parts. The first part brings the concept of learning circles closer through a complete course, designed as a learning circle. By completing this course, you’ll gain a better understanding of the concept, as well as its methodology, and can further use this course to train future facilitators.
Part2: Self-Learning of this Facilitator Handbook is devoted to the concept of self-learning.
Part 3: Facilitating Learning Circles explores how to best facilitate Learning Circles.
Finally, Part 4: Virtual Learning Circles provides practical tips on running the Learning Circles online.
