Designing Online with Liberating Structures

Liberating Structures are facilitated activities that can be used with groups of any kind. They are “serious fun” processes to support engagement, collaboration, and innovation. While Liberating Structures can absolutely be used with groups in person, this four-week online course is about facilitating Liberating Structures online.
