Chapter 3. Learner and Facilitator > Roles of a Facilitator

Roles of a Facilitator

Facilitators wear many hats during the course of a learning event, and all these hats are critical to supporting an effective learning experience. An apt analogy might be director of a play or movie: The director orchestrates everything that happens, from what the actors say and do down to minute details of set design. These elements interact to support the goal of telling a story.

By the same token, all the roles facilitators fill and all the things facilitators do interact to support one goal: learning. While wearing these many hats, facilitators are also in charge of both the task (learning and applying knowledge and skills) and the process (how the learning and applying happen) of learning experiences. Each role described in the sections that follow focuses on managing a task or process.
