The Facilitation Laboratory
(09:00 AM - 11:30 AM)

An exploration of community meeting facilitation

 

334/336 Memorial Union Building - 83 Main Street

 

Please join UNH Cooperative Extension and NH Listens to experiment with the power of interactive practice in sticky facilitation moments. New facilitators and those with years of experience in community facilitation or public meetings know that a tough participant can be challenging. We will work with UNH Theatre professor David Kaye and his group, PowerPlay Interactive Development, to gain new insights, techniques and skills. The actors will do the role play and we will work to dig into those heart racing moments and learn some best practices.

 

Registration is requested as space is limited. http://events.r20.constantcontact.com/register/event?oeidk=a07e9s7gm62745fce86&llr=wfmitukab
