What does it mean to be a facilitator?

Being a facilitator means that you are not really a teacher, nor are you a leader. A facilitator serves as a guide, helping workshop participants gain a better understanding of the guide books, their uses, and potential impacts on student’s environmental awareness and understanding. As a facilitator, you set the stage for learning and encourage participants to explore and develop as professionals.

Procedure on becoming a facilitator:

  • Depending for which project you want to be a facilittor, attend a 6 hour Project Learning Tree, Project WET or Project WILD workshop training.
  • Attend a Project Learning Tree, Project WET or Project WILD Facilitator Training.
  • Co-facilitate with a seasoned facilitator for at least one 6 hour workshop, or until you are comfortable facilitating on your own.
  • Attend yearly facilitator “refresher” courses when offered.

Commitment for a facilitator:

  • Facilitate at least one workshop a year with a minimum of 10 participants.
  • Stay current on all statewide and national office of education trends and policies.
  • Stay current on all statewide and national trends in environmental education.
  • Be willing to advertise and promote upcoming workshops within the facilitator’s network.

What is USEE?
