Quite a large part of LGBTQI activism is working in schools, having presentations and workshops with students on sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, genders and sex characteristics. Very often, LGBTQI activists conduct workshops and trainings with members of professional groups, such as education staff, health service providers, law enforcement, members of the press, etc. In addition to this direct type of activism, almost all of us are also involved in having meetings in our organisations, taking decisions, taking part in boards and committees and in many other types of groups and their meetings.
We can agree that, for many of us, a large part of our activism revolves around workshops, meetings, presentations. And many times we are thrown into doing this without much preparation or training. We almost always do a good job, and repeated facilitation experiences make us better each time. But if we have knowledge of a frame for how to design our workshops and if we learn more about how to teach others, we can be more effective facilitators and this means that the people we work with will go through more sustainable changes in the direction that we want them to go.
This module is an easy and practical one, it is addressed to those of you who have not had a lot of training of trainers, and it will help you design and deliver workshops and facilitate meetings more effectively.
