Facilitating Learning Online (FLO) MicroCourse: Design with Liberating Structures - ONLINE

This Facilitating Learning Online (FLO) MicroCourse is a short, 1-week introduction to Design with Liberating Structures. This MicroCourse will introduce you to the basics of Liberating Structures and will give you an opportunity to dip into the FLO experience and leave with something practical that can be applied wherever you facilitate: classrooms, meetings, planning sessions, team days, workshops, and presentations.
For more information about this course please contact Professional and Continuing Studies

Liberating Structures are seriously fun, purpose-driven methods to unleash and include everyone to work together toward productive endpoints. Whether you just want your meetings to be a bit livelier and more inclusive, or you want to help change the world, consider adding Liberating Structures to your facilitation repertoire!
