We are just starting the second week of our facilitating online course. We have to think about why we want to do the course, join the emails group and answer these questions
- What do you want to learn to facilitate?
- What are you doing now in terms of online facilitation?
- What would you like to achieve, change or do more of?
- What do you need to do or make happen to achieve your goal?
Well I would really like to learn how to facilitate an online campain properly. I tend to rely on friends and supporters which always appears to be getting the word out there. However it is really more like preaching to the converted and I’m sure there is a way to reach an untouched audience.
I have attended 4 births this week but in between have been quite excited about reading everyone’s blogs and thinking of my goals. I have no idea about wiki so hope to at least understand the point of it by the end of the course. Twitter is also an enigma to me although I try hard
What I have found it difficult to add a comment to some of the blogs as they are self explanatory but create no questions for me. I would like to comment more as I myself love comments, so am trying to be more inspirational and less reactive. There was a fantastic discussion on Gullivers musings in the comments section about your online persona.
I also gave consideration to becoming an official participant by paying the course fee and getting one on one tuition. It’s not that I’m particularly internet naive but I have lots of specific questions that could be boring for people and I find it easy to dominate a conversation (a failing but at least I know myself well). However I think it is a lot more for international students.
I have to answer the above questions this week but it needs more thought.
