Workshop, Day 1
A response in avoidance of the Daily Post’s Writing Prompt https://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/mad-libs/
Ever signed up for a 2 1/2 day workshop and then, a week before said workshop, wondered “why did I sign up for that workshop that is going to take me away from home (and Kevin and kitties) for 2 1/2 days and push me out of my comfort zone into an unknown realm of facilitation technique that may or may not be touchy-feely nightmares”? I know – happens to everyone!
Well, I am here, and I am actually enjoying myself and find that I am learning things that might actually come in handy at work. Yes indeed. I won’t evangelize (because that would require that I actually write more…), and I am exhausted after only the first day (and I know that friend, family and colleagues will be skeptical and perhaps pooh-poohy), but these “liberating structures” things are actually quite interesting.
Ok, enough advertising. You can look up Liberating Structures yourself and find out more if you’re into facilitation-type stuff. I’m here to give you a glimpse into my day yesterday. Enjoy 🙂
The views from the windows on either side of the second-floor space (floor to ceiling windows, I might add, which helps a lot when you’re in one place with 120 other people all day!):
Assorted things I found interesting in the moment…
And now, it’s off to day two!
