Chapter 6. Facilitation Techniques > Adjusting on the Fly

Adjusting on the Fly

The mark of an excellent learning facilitator is the ability to adjust “on the fly” to changing conditions without shortchanging the learning process. The most common causes for adjusting on the fly are

  • an unexpected change in time constraints (fire drill, a productive tangent, a surprise guest speaker, learners working faster or slower than you expected, a late start for the course)

  • a prior assumption or assessment about the learners is off target (they are more or less experienced than you thought; their backgrounds are not what you thought they were; they are more or less open to certain types of activities than you expected).
