As an activity coordinator, one of your most important roles is to help everyone feel safe and valued, which in large part comes from people knowing one another and having a warm relationship with one another. You can think of yourself as an orchestra conductor trying to create interesting music and harmony from your participants/musicians.
This course is aimed at developing your skills as a discussion leader where discussion is the primary reason for the activity, though many of the ideas will also apply when discussion is secondary, such as the background to decorating flower pots or baking biscuits.
Part 1 of the course covers logistics – room size, seating, lighting, etc – along with your role as facilitator.
Part 2 will cover tips for promoting discussion in different groups.
