|How well did the facilitator lead the group and create a safe space? Please explain and give examples.|
This was mainly the responsibility of one of your Co-facilitators however when you were facilitating the first few slides, ‘who are you?’, Bias, in-group, it really felt like you created that safe space for folks to share. Particularly managing to see and extract the strength in Gareth’s comment and within his identity that he portrays to the group and your ability to share this. You created a sense of encouragement for others to also share within the session. Promoting the ‘diversity of identity’. Gareth’s comment (shows that she is learning alongside of us; not being “the expert”); shows appreciation and affirming towards participants’ responses. Reveals that her mouth is dry; showing authenticity
|How well did the facilitator explain this Skill using the PowerPoint presentation? Please give examples.|
‘Who are you?’ (Activity), Bias, in-group, essentialism, clear, engaging nicely paced and dealt with the fact that the powerpoint wasn’t always functioning really well and adapted to get the message and material to the participants.
|How well did the facilitator explain and lead the activities in this Skill? Please explain and give specific examples.|
Who are you? Exercise - you put a unique twist on this activity, making it your own (showed cohesiveness; clear that facilitators are prepared for this activity in advance) , I'm still not sure if it felt like this 3 way approach of sharing the questions amongst all the facilitators present worked or not but it showed your willingness to play with the material and your willingness to share the material equally with your co facilitators today.
