Vizazi Booster Training Of Trainer (TOT)

It was a great honor to be invited by Vizazi at the Booster Training of Trainers where our founder Mr. Wilson Masaka shared his knowledge and skills in facilitation and training. Remember not everyone with knowledge can TEACH. Teaching and facilitation are skills that are found with people with passion, time, right attitude, long life learners, experience, training qualification, values etc.

Vizazi is an international expert centre for interventions operating in the field of high quality counseling, training and supervision. More about Vizazi https://www.vizazi.org/

Topic of the day: Facilitation and Training skills.

  • Content Vs. Context
  • ASK Model.

Facilitators Teaching Vs. Facilitation

  • Facilitators might not be subject area experts like a teacher. They do have special training in group dynamics using processes such as conflict resolution, strategic planning and team building.
  • A facilitator can quickly determine what the group knows so the group can proceed to build on that knowledge.
  • The facilitator also helps the group evaluate what group members learned from their activities.

Teachers / Trainers

  • In charge of the learning environment (primary source of knowledge in a session).
  • Responsible for creating lesson plans that direct the course of study students follow.
  • Clear and concise objectives delineate what the student learns on any given day.
  • Measuring how much information the student learns.
    Facilitation is a method of teaching, meaning a teacher can become a facilitator depending with the content (subject, objective etc.)
