Facilitation Case Study

At the beginning of a facilitation session, I would “clearly describe(s) the goal” provide information on “how the session will be conducted” and “clarify whether members are making the final decision or as simple being asked for input about a decision to be made elsewhere” and state “how long the entire discussion will take” (Bens, 2012, p. 18). To end the facilitation session, I would “provide a summary of key points to ensure that there’s a shared view of the outcome” (Bens, 2012, p.19). I do not like using the “Peer tutoring” approach with small groups. I find that one student will do more work than another, if the other learner does any work at all. The concept of the approach should work in theory, as the “peer of the learner helps them…show more content…
For the most part I am pretty much in line with what I thought my results would be. In this final section I will compare my expect TPI results to my actual results.

When I attended Centennial College a few years ago, I used this perspective to motivate the other students to complete their assignments and attend class. At the time I was not aware I was using a “perspective” I thought of it more as being a motivator.
Transmission. As I stated earlier I am a little OCD and in this perspective, “educators are very content-focused, and do not like to deviate from the material that is to be covered in a given class period” (Lowry & Barry, 2011, p. 215). For me I feel that this statement is very accurate, I like to stay focused and keep to the material as I do not want to leave out any material that someone could potential use as their “ah ha”
