Chapter 4. Getting Started > Creating the Climate for Learning

Creating the Climate for Learning

Critical aspects of creating a climate for learning include setting up the room and adjusting physical environment factors before the learning event; preparing yourself for the facilitation experience; greeting the learners as they arrive; making the learners feel comfortable as they arrive; and conducting opening activities.

Think About This

One factor that will affect all your decisions about creating a climate for learning is the number of learners who will be participating in the event. Facilitated learning rarely involves more than 24 learners. Therefore, you probably won’t need—or want—a huge room or a large number of tables and chairs for learners. In addition, it is unlikely that you’d need a microphone to amplify your voice, although there may be some occasions when you’d want to use a lavaliere microphone, which would allow you to move freely throughout the room.
