Focus on Facilitation Reflection and Storytelling Retreat

Here is a recording of our “mini-virtual retreat” that we did with the Focus on Facilitation Community of Practice.

First, here is the welcome video I sent introducing our collaborative whiteboard and some of the key expedition reflection activities participants could start thinking about.

Here is the recording of our actual workshop. About half of the time we spent together was not recorded since those were private breakout groups where participants were sharing their own stories from their reflection activities. If you are curious about AI, watch the end where we demonstrate some uses of ChatGPT for facilitators as I tell the story of my current expedition…to learn and apply AI as a design thinking facilitator, program designer, and teacher.

Just reach out if you have any questions or would like to connect about this retreat.
