IAF FacWeek_Play out the Creativity of Liberating Structures x ORID(English)_Sept. 12

Play out the Creativity of Liberating Structures x ORID

With Connie Tsai, Eric Tseng, and Larry Philbrook

We want to invite you to interweave two powerful approaches. Liberating Structures which are easy-to-learn microstructures that enhance relational coordination, trust, and quickly foster lively participation. We want to explore combining some of the Liberating Structures tools with this conscious design framework from the Institute of Cultural Affairs called Focused Conversation or ORID which is a structured question design process ICA has used in multiple settings for over 50 years.

This is an invitation to a facilitation playing field and to reflect on our experience and how you might apply to your own life.

We plan to offer it twice once in Chinese(Sept. 15) and once in English(Sept.12). Each session will be about 2 hours.
