The Fundamentals of Creative Facilitation:
Training for those working in health and well-being

Next course is Friday, March 31st and Friday, May 5th 2023 10.00 am -16.00 pm

Durham University’s Institute for Medical Humanities is in the unique position of having its own Creative Facilitator, Mary Robson. We know that creative facilitation can make a real difference - from developing innovative research methodologies to running meetings more effectively - and want to spread the skillset.
You might want to be a facilitator, or to discover when and why to bring a facilitator in. This course will help you decide, and introduce you to a strong, mutually supportive community of people who use and champion the use of creative facilitation in health and wellbeing contexts in the Northeast and beyond.

Together, we’ll examine methods, attributes, and aspects of creative facilitation, so that participants will be able to apply it in their workplaces. You will learn some key participative methods and there will be opportunities to practice them in a supportive and interactive environment.

By the end of this course, the participants will:

  • Be able to identify when and how to use the methods described.
  • Have gained confidence in the use of the methods in different contexts.
  • Have forged links with others keen to discover ways to use the methods in their workplaces.

Whilst we are situated in the academy, we know that it can be useful in other professional environments and so are particularly keen to deliver it to a cross-sectoral cohort. Hence this two-day, in-person course. Please note - you will need to attend both days

If you are interested in applying, please fill in this form by Wednesday 15th March, 2022.

There are sixteen available places which will be allocated to include applicants from different health and well-being focused sectors. We will let you know whether or not you have secured a place by Monday 20th March, 2022.
