Co-Facilitator Learning Community

Given the evolving understanding of how campus will gather this Fall, LCICE is currently assessing where and how we can have the most impact. At this moment, Co-Facilitator Learning Community for Fall 2020 is on hold until further notice.

We will post information here as soon as we know more.

Established in 2011, the Co-Facilitator Learning Community (CFLC), provides an intentional professional development space for “training the trainers”.  LCICE has developed a unique “hybrid” Participant/Co-Facilitator Model where facilitators are also learners/participants rather than experts. It removes the hierarchy of the expert and fosters co-learning for all participants, including participant/co-facilitator.

CFLC members, who have already gone through at least one LCICE Learning Community previously as a participant, must commit to an intensive year-long engagement (three hours, bi-weekly during academic year, and weekly during summer).

CFLC outcome goals are:

  • To have a clearer understanding of the LCICE hybrid “participant/co-facilitator” model and frameworks and processes embedded within LCs;
  • To discover ones ‘covered spot’ in the JoHari Window through continued examining of ones filters, lenses and frames;
  • To develop an ability to, examine and own, how ones one’s advantaged and disadvantaged social identities impact others;
  • To have an awareness of, and, timely tracking of group dynamics and speaking up;
  • To strive to give and receive critical feedback, especially, when conflict is present;
  • To build relationships and build community with other participant /facilitators;
