Liberating Structures

I had the opportunity to learn about 9 liberating structures at a PD workshop at Royal Roads University last week. As a facilitator and educator, I am always looking for what is new in the field and for new ways to engage participants. These liberating structures, although not necessarily new (Fishbowl, What So What? Now What?), are conceived and reinvented with the intention of including every participant in the process. They are also ‘packaged’ and explained in a way that is understandable. This is how the creators state their purpose:

We want to create opportunities for everyone (including ourselves) to become what they are capable of becoming. Plus, we want to inspire more kindness and reduce suffering in the world.

All the information can be found on the Liberating Structures website, my favourite part is the menu where all the liberating structures are described.
