We were delighted to receive the following feedback from World Triathlon following our recent delivery of facilitator training.
The motto of facilitating learning:
“Tell me and I will forget. Show me and I may remember. Involve me and I will understand.”
World Triathlon Headquarters hosted a facilitator course for Para classifiers and coaches 20-23 October in Lausanne, Switzerland. Seven candidates from Japan, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands, Ireland and Belgium were challenged to move out of their comfort zone by Norman Brook, TRI lead facilitator.Brook, TRI lead facilitator.
The packed 3 days gave each candidate a chance to conduct a classroom, a practical and an online mini-session while using learner-centred facilitation skills in each delivery. They also practised implementing the review model, while facilitating individual and group reflection in a learning process.
Zita Csovelyak, Head of NF Services and Development: “World Triathlon trained a total of twenty-one trainers from three continents this year to strengthen and expand its technical officials, coach and Para classifier facilitator team. We cannot wait to see them delivering TRI education and development projects globally in English, French and Spanish. This course has always been a game-changer for the participants not just in their professional, but personal life as well.”
