To inform indirectly
An activity is instruction
where participants do most of the work. As an instructor,
The Activity Model:
Set a Goal (Opening): A learning target to achieve; e.g., "We need a sales training program for the forthcoming model of our new widget. What needs to be included?"
Group Work (Middle): Small groups discuss the program needs and create reports.
Report and Discuss Findings (Closing): Each group reports its findings. The facilitator lists important issues, notes views as to their significance, creates a findings list, then prioritized as to their importance.
The model described above is one of many possibilities and... facilitation is difficult.
